The Muswell Hill 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 Discoverers they find the staff team and environment just as nurturing and supportive towards meeting their individual needs. Discoverers are encouraged to be more independent and to try things out for themselves, supervised by caring adults, taking those next important steps in their development.

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is the foundation of our curriculum for the Discoverers studio and we continue our focus on sensory experiences and exploration and discovery. Toddlers continue to learn through their own sensory exploration, but they are now beginning to develop spoken language, so we focus on fostering this development through planned and spontaneous activity introducing new words, reading books and singing songs in small and larger groups.

Our fully qualified Art and Music teachers visit the rooms regularly to provide additional subject-specific activities for the under-twos that are tailored to meet their needs, and abilities, develop their interests and give them the opportunity to express their natural talents.

The daily routine of planned and spontaneous activities is broken up by meal and snack times and a sleep in the early afternoon. 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 and play lullabies and other soft calming music to help children sleep.

Daily outdoors play develops large motor control and helps expend some of the children’s boundless energy, that takes place in our dedicated outdoor play area and our indoor-outdoor room. Sensory activities are planned, both in the base rooms and our dedicated sensory room. Children participate in daily art and craft activities which encourages the toddlers to experiment with and explore a wide range of varied and interesting craft materials. At this stage and throughout their time with us, it is the process and the learning through this that is important rather than the end product.
