Bluebell Room ( Age 3)
Your child will be approximately 3 years of age. This is an additional room base that was opened in March 2018 to meet the needs of the rising threes and increase in our 30 hour funding places. This room base has a mixed ratio and staff carefully plan and adjust the routines throughout the year to reflect this. The staff will follow either a 1:4 or 1: 8 ratio dependant on if the children are 2 or 3 years of age. This room provides a place for children who may become funded from January and they will then stay for two terms before moving up to either Sunflowers or Poppies for a full school year i.e. Sept- July . Bluebell room can have up to 28 children at any one time.
Your child will be allocated a key person and will follow the Early Years Foundation stage Your child now has access to Early Years Education with wrap-around care (Educare) enabling free flow access between indoor/outdoor environments. Your child’s progress will be monitored and recorded individually in the form of a 'Learning Journey'.
Children in Bluebell room are required to be undergoing toilet training or preferably be toilet trained as this is an important step in your child’s development. Staff can support this process and have a number of tips and strategies to provide to you.
