Our Zebras room is a toddler age room catering to slightly older toddlers where the children are encouraged to foster their independence and self-help skills. The Zebras room is stocked with age appropriate toys, learning resources and activities to further develop their skills. We offer a wide variety of activities and programs in line with the Early Years Learning Framework and using music and movement, small and larger group times, one on one activities which are all designed to strengthen and further develop the children’s gross and fine motor skills, social skills and emotional development. Children in this age group are entering early learning stages with colours, letters and numbers to build the foundations for more structured learning in older age groups. Children at this age are learning important independence skills and with repetition can acquire competency, success and autonomy for personal care such as learning to dress and toilet themselves and take responsibility for packing up their own toys and activities. They are rapidly producing language and need simple books, puzzles and pictures. The children in the Zebras are also very active and enjoy jumping, running, dancing, climbing, using large muscles and requiring lots of space. They are also building social relationships with their peers and will seek out specific friends to interact with. The Zebras room has access to a wonderful yard with hard, soft, level and undulating services including artificial turf, sandstone blocks, soft fall, natural tan bark and garden beds, a bike track and our all new water play park.
