Learning at home

Babies aged 0-12 months

You will need:
- Small toys that light up or sing when touched
- A smile!

Interacting with people in their world is very important for young babies development.  Spend some time with baby lying on their back, dangle toys above them and encourage baby to reach or kick the toy.  Reward them with smiles and claps when they do, and don’t forget to keep talking to them!

As baby gets older and more mobile encourage them to move around the room to chase a toy, a ball or push along car maybe.

Learning at home

Toddlers aged 12-24 months

You will need:

- Small cardboard boxes - Pieces of different textured material

- Metal pots and pans - Wooden spoons

Young children learn best through their senses.  They also need to spend a lot of time developing their understanding of the world around them. What does cardboard feel like? How does metal sound? By allowing children to explore these real world items in a safe environment they can  make links and better understand the world around them.

Learning at home

Juniors aged 24-36 months

You will need:
- A favourite book
 
Find a cosy space to snuggle up with a book they are familiar with, rhyming books are especially nice for this activity.  As you read each page add actions or sounds to the story, like saying ‘Snap!’ loudly for a crocodile and clapping your hands together like his long mouth.  Encourage your child to join in.  If they are really familiar with the story you can leave key words out, especially the rhyming ones out and let them fill in the gap!

Caring for and educating children is a very emotive thing and parents must feel 100% confident when leaving their children in someone else’s care. ABC are a family owned and run business and we believe in family values. We never underestimate how difficult it is for working parents to balance work life with home life and we do everything we can to make finding that balance a little bit easier.

We work in close partnership with our Parents/Carers and encourage regular, open and honest communication.
We do this through an open door policy, Famly -  our online learning and communication platform, Parents' Evenings, coffee mornings, notice boards, annual Questionnaires, emails to feedback@abcchildcarecentres.co.uk and a postbox in our reception areas. 

To arrange a viewing or discuss availability, please contact one of our Centres directly.
