This adventurer has now become more interested in exploration than cuddling and you cannot stop their curiosity. For this reason it is imperative that a nursery moves the Child to the appropriate environment in a timely manner, to maximise on the child's hunger for knowledge of the world around them.
Whether it be language, music, physical or emotional stimulus, we see every moment they are with us as an opportunity. Exposing your child to fantastic opportunities as young as this are the building blocks to knowledge and wisdom in later years. You will observe how they pick up social nuances from other children.
More than often we enrol new children with habits such as biting, dummies etc. However in our nursery environment we turn these situations around for three reasons. They are made to feel firstly secure, then loved and special. Secondly, they are given so much stimulus indoors and outdoors that they are distracted and diverted and we exhaust them through this stimulus. Thirdly by being firm and consistent. So very quickly they begin behaving and the 'old habits' cease.
Your child will start counting, knowing the days of the week and months of the year. Naturally, we appreciate that success with any child is only possible where emotional needs are met first. We achieve this by making your child feel secure. A child starting here may find it difficult to settle one session a week as it does not allow a cautious child enough time to build trust.
