Over the last year we have been expanding our provision to welcome two-year-olds into our centre. If you know someone who might be eligible click here to check.
Our two-year-olds will be a major focus of our improvement work this year as we seek to discover the answers to the following questions:
|What are the potential positive outcomes for two-year children who attend an Early Learning and Childcare Setting?|
- How does early learning and childcare provision impact on children’s social and emotional wellbeing?
- How does early learning and childcare provision impact on children’s language development?
- How do these young children form relationships with their key person, other adults and other children in the early learning and childcare setting?
- How do early years professionals support the wellbeing and development of two-year-old children?
Rosamund had the opportunity to meet with an international group of researchers at Strathclyde University to talk about our focus on the needs of two-year-olds and will be keeping in touch with members of the New Zealand team who are also interested in this area. Exciting times ahead!
