Activities at Step by Step Childminding
Here at Step by Step Childminding we have a range of toys for children to play with and that also cover all areas of learning. These toys are accessible to the children at all times. Each week the children are observed in their play and from those observations we see where they are in their level of development and plan for the next week for them to help support their learning. We do have a monthly topic which parents and carers are informed of through newsletters and these topics are themes which we will provide extra activities within these themse for your child to learn and explore. We have a weekly and daily routine which parents and carers can see on the parents board. Our weekly routine consists of going to local toddler group, local library rhyme time,soft play centres, the local parks, local shops and feeding the ducks. The individual child's interest is the main focus at all times and we work in partnership with the parents. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage at all times to support under 5's learning.
Although we are not required to follow a framework for over 5's. We will support with any homework your child brings home from school and in holidays provide activities that require thinking and concentration and physcial skills and also days out.
