Our Sunflower classroom caters for children aged 18-24 months and benefits from a self-contained classroom and bathroom area. The classroom boasts three bright and spacious areas that focus on refining the prime areas of development: Communication and Language;Physical Development; and, Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
The children in this classroom are given access to a wide range of resources that reflect the cycle of observation and planning. The children’s own interests and next steps are reflected in both the planned activities and the continuous provision.
As Maria Montessori believed that children need to explore objects made of natural and holistic materials.through their interaction with these materials, the children are:
- Encouraging the use of their senses
- Developing Listening and Attention
- Refining their coordination and motor skills
- Developing the ability to make simple choices and express a preference
Children in the Sunflower Room are given access to our safe and secure garden, with a range of activities that extend the indoor environment. These children are escorted to the garden at least once a day – come rain come shine!
