Welcome to the Seedlings Room!
We look after children aged 2 years old. In this room our staff are, Kate (deputy manager), Lauren (currently on maternity), Suzy, Alicia and Evie. We all work together using in the moment planning to create a caring and exciting environment in which the children can thrive. Our children will move into the Sunflower room the term after they turn 3.
What is in the moment planning ? Here is a quick explanation!
Young children have a natural desire to learn, explore and question. We offer core provisions and an environment that enables this activity in order to capture the moment of engagement for each child. Careful observation by us is key to utilising the in the moment planning approach – opportunities to seize the moment when a child shows a level of interest and curiosity that can be drawn out and then enhanced and built upon need to be recognised - these are normally called ‘teachable moments’. Written ‘planning’ is then done retrospectively in the form of observations, records of the interactions and notes on outcomes.
