Childcare encouraging independence, sharing, and self-directed play. The ratio of staff for this age group is: one member of staff to four children. During their time at Ducklings, children are encouraged to play alongside each other and share their toys. They are actively encouraged to increase their confidence and independence.
Activities are well-planned and include lots of time for free, self-directed play. Children are encouraged to experience the delights of messy play, role play, creative, outdoor play, risky play and many more areas. We provide a variety of activities including, painting, outdoor play including walks to the local amenities, sand play, water play and many more to give each individual child the opportunity to develop in a positive manner.
They are actively encouraged to increase their confidence and independence. For example, they are taught and encouraged to attend to their own toilet needs, find their name card and put their shoes and coat on.
