Teddy Tots Sessions
These sessions run on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon from 12.30pm – 3.00pm.
Our Teddy Tots sessions are for younger children. However, their sessions are blended with the Rising School children (who are an academic year ahead). The first 45 minutes of the session is dedicated solely for the Teddy Tots.
There are lots of toys inside and outside for the children to play with and a mixture of group activities and individual play. We use the early years curriculum to develop their learning and help them socialise with others.
As the children on these sessions are so young and develop at different rates, we suggest that parents visit us with their child before starting*. We will then work with them to help with the settling in process.
*We currently are unable to offer settling in sessions prior to your child starting at Rainbow Teddies. This is due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. Please take a look at our Covid-19 policy here.
During the course of the session the children will have access to a variety of resources both inside and outside, covering all areas of the curriculum. They will also be given the opportunity to participate in a snack and during most sessions we finish with a story and/or a song.
Upon collection of your child at the end of the session, you will find a board detailing the activities that the children have enjoyed during the day along with the snack options. We find that this information is useful for you to start conversations with your children about their experiences that day.
Teddy Tots Term 4
Welcome back to Term 4! Key people have been observing the children and a common theme of interest is physical movement. Therefore, our theme for this term is ‘moving in different ways’. Planned activities and resources will be used to support this. We will continue to sing our Nursery Rhyme each week and we will be looking at numbers 1 to 10.
Early Years Foundation Stage
The provision for children’s learning and development is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (DfE 2012). Our provision reflects the four guiding themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
