Nursery Rhymes For the first few weeks, we will be settling into routines and getting to know each other. Experience shows us that this settling in period is vital so that our children feel safe and secure as we move forward in our learning. We will be learning and talking about what it is to be GOLDEN and SPARKLE. T. We will also be focussing on helping your children to become independent learners. We will be encouraging them to use the toilet, get dressed, fasten their own coat and put on their shoes. These independent skills are a fundamental part of the Early Year’s curriculum as well as promoting independent learning. Please speak to a member of staff if you require any support.
