“I’m trying to understand the world and my curiosity and drive sometimes looks like trouble, I’m a force to be reckoned with, a busy brain on the go.”
For children aged 2-3 years
We continue to encourage the children to build upon their independence by working at their pace, to attempt to dress themselves, to serve themselves at mealtimes. The children are introduced to china crockery and glass tumblers and how to use them safely. They love nothing more than to clean a table, wash up or prepare snack. We call all of this “real work”.
We actively promote care of the environment, both indoors and out, everything has a place, establishing a sense of order. We support children to be sensitive to the needs of others, to nurture self-control and to develop their social skills. At this stage it is all about helping the child to do it for themselves.
