We have to lovely parks with lots of play equipment and open space just a short walk away that we visit very regularly also attend toddler groups, library visits, indoor soft play and country walks. We have a good balance of indoor and outdoor time. In doors we do lots of arts and crafts, roll play, cooking, play dough, messy and sensory play. Parents are involved and kept up to date with the activities we do and their child’s progress, I use ‘Baby’s days’ to create children’s daily diary, do observations, track children progress and upload photos and videos for parents to see.
