The West Finchley Nursery & Preschool - Discoverers Room

How we support children in our Discovery Room (mobile babies to two-year-olds)

When children make the transition from Explorers to Discovers, the staff are here to create a nurturing environment for them. Discoverers are encouraged to be more independent and to try things out for themselves and with supporting and caring adults by their side, they can take those important next steps in their development.

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum forms the basis for our curriculum for Discoverers and has a strong focus on exploring and discovering new things. Toddlers continue to learn through sensory exploration and because they are beginning to develop spoken language, we can focus on fostering this development. Through both planned and spontaneous activities, we introduce new vocabulary by reading books and singing songs in small and large groups.

Our fully qualified Art and Music teachers visit the rooms regularly, providing a range of additional subject-specific activities for the under-twos. All of these activities are tailored to meet their needs and abilities while developing their interests, to give them the opportunity to express their natural talents.

The daily routine is broken up by meal and snack times, as well as an early afternoon sleep. All of the Discoverers sleep together on sleep mats in their base room, supervised by our experienced staff team after lunch. We create a calm environment by playing lullabies and other sift music to help children sleep.

Every day there is outdoor play, which develops large motor control and helps expend some of the children’s boundless energy. Sensory activities are planned by our staff, both in the base rooms and our dedicated sensory room. There is also dedicated time for daily art and craft activities to encourage toddlers to experiment with and explore a range of varied and interesting craft materials. At this stage and throughout their time with us, it is the process of learning that is important, rather than the end product.
