The environment supports development of Practical Life Skills, Language, manipulative exercises and the outdoor learning environment.
Typically baking occurs every day alongside much food preparation; everything is done with purpose and the toddlers come together at lunchtime to celebrate the work and being a part of a community.
There are also opportunities for the children to practise the grace and courtesies that accompany such a gathering, such as setting a beautiful table with flowers and linen and observing and practising table etiquette. These are real experiences where your toddler will acquire life skills, using real tools to achieve practical goals.
The child’s routine is sequential rather than time based, as sequence is what they understand at this age. The toddler’s need for gross and fine movement is supported in almost everything they participate in.
Independent toileting is supported and children participate in a rest period.
