Early Years

2 years – 3 years

Early Years at First Steps

In Early Years your child will be encouraged to start making more independent decisions, with a variety of free choice activities to choose from. The children become more involved in the daily routine and start to give ideas of what they would like to do in their nursery day.

At this stage the children have already started to form a variety of relationships, building stronger friendships as they progress through nursery life.

Through both indoor and outdoor provision, the children are encouraged to investigate and explore at every opportunity. We work alongside your child to facilitate their early language and literacy development, whilst combining all the skills they have attained since entering First Steps. They are encouraged to participate in a mixture of activities with other children including creative paintings, messy games and outdoor play.

If they still wish to do so, the children can have an afternoon sleep after their lunchtime meal.
