During this phase, emphasis is placed upon a specific type of independence; this is potty training – a crucial process in child development. Bigger and more sophisticated play equipment is also employed to stimulate growing abilities.

Name recognition is introduced as children have become familiar with the same faces.  Story time and sing-along opportunities prompt children to seek engagement with the activities and people around them.

With a growing range of sensory equipment and activities available within the nursery, the children’s imaginations will be much easier to spark. Musical instruments and interesting scents, for example, will trigger this.

Good behaviour is rewarded at this stage. Stickers and treats, as well as ‘star of the week, are used to do this. Taking part in group activities and role-plays teach children how to manage their feelings in the best way, as well as inspiring resourcefulness and expression.

Free flow play is continued from Little Acorns, promoting free choice and independence.

Every week, Rocky Bear goes on a new adventure with one of the Conkers children. When Rocky Bear returns, we talk about what he has been up to whilst on his travels.
