Little Rabbits

If you are aged between 18 months and 3 years you are a Little Rabbit!  You will be ready to take on all the exciting challenges that you simply couldn’t tackle when you were crawling or  just startingScreen Shot 2014-12-01 at 13.41.22 to walk, and you will be keen to communicate your wishes and hopes to your special grown-ups.  Around your second birthday you will be starting to potty/toilet train and you will be testing the boundaries of every adult around you as you begin to understand your place in the grand scheme of things.  .  Our Little Rabbit practitioners are gifted with patience, and trained in behaviour management techniques – specially helpful when you are grappling with the occasional challenges of being 2!.

Your key carer will now offer you play opportunities to support your development across the Prime Areas of Learning plus Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Art & Design and Understanding the World.  During the time you are a Little Rabbit (and as close to your second birthday as we can) we will produce a record of our understanding of your progress in your Two Year Development check.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

 If you like a nap during the day, we will settle you on a rainbow bed in The Quiet Room, or in a cot upstairs if your parents prefer.  When you begin to show signs of understanding, we will discuss with your parents the options available for your toilet training.  We will send home our Potty training policy and work together to make this a fuss-free experience for everyone involved!                                                                                                                                                                     Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 13.48.24
