Thomas Edison Room, Devonport Childcare Centre
Age Group: 2 years – 3 years
Class Size: 16
Thomas Edison rose from humble beginnings to develop technology and make his inventions widely available and useful. Invention is commonplace for children of this age as they become inquisitive and exploratory in their place.
Providing an abundant selection of resources within varied environments allows the imaginative creators to push boundaries and showcase their learning every minute of the day. Interacting with their peers teaches them social skills such as turn taking and making a friend.
At this stage, we focus on activities that assist your child in establishing a strong foundation of social skills and an independent inquiring mind, coupled with fine motor skills and a basic introduction to concepts of numeracy and literacy. This formative period sets them up with the perfect platform from which to grow in future years.
