From 18 months to 30 months

Wonder and awe – two things that as adults we have probably long forgotten about – but not so for children. Children are experts at enjoying and appreciating the world around them and they do this with excitement, fun and enthusiasm.

Luckily for us at Great Expectations, we follow the children’s lead on their pathways of discovery which means we have the honour of sharing in these special moments. It also means that we get to learn about children’s unique fascinations and we use them to support their learning.

Our wonderful Toddler unit has been created for children aged 18 to 30 months, to spark curiosity and inspire exploration with lots of natural resources and access to a safe outdoor play area. The unit also has toilet and sleep facilities to ensure that children are comfortable and well rested during their busy day.

Being two is not easy. At times you feel big and strong. You declare your independence in all kinds of ways; you want to be respected and given space. Other times you feel small and vulnerable; the world looms large and scary. You want to be held and hugged and treated like the baby you used to be”. A quote from Community Playthings

This quote illustrates why our staff work so hard to build close and trusting relationships with the children they care for. Creating a beautiful environment for children is only the first step. Helping them get the most out of it takes a lot of skill and an acknowledgement that sometimes this means that children will explore their space freely and other times they will do it from your knee!
