Squirrel's Room (3 - 4 years)

In Squirrel's Room we have a maximum ratio of 1:15.

Your child's language will develop a lot this year and they will learn hundreds of new words by listening to you and others. Your child is fascinated by the world around them and enjoys moving and being active. They are mastering peddling a tricycle, throwing, catching and kicking a ball, running, climbing, jumping, hopping and balancing. This a very exciting time! 

As your child understands opposites like big/ small and more/ less and concepts like 'on', 'in' and 'under' we provide a positive approach to problem solving by asking open-ended questions and we support the children in their attempt at finding solutions so they can extend their mathematical and scientific thinking. 

Your child will also start to identify letters and numbers when you name them and can count objects and sort them by color and shape so we engage the children in conversations and activities that will enhance their learning including structured play.
