Toddler Time is a new initiative of Tintern Grammar. The children are aged between 18 months to 3 years. They attend a morning session for 2 hours with activities and fruit time. The children have really been responding well to the program and now in week three they are greeting the staff with waves and smiles. The activities in the room have been a great way for staff to get to know the children and parents to get to know each other. The children have enjoyed building with blocks, making cups of tea, playing with play dough and enjoying a variety of activities. Each week we make small changes to the activities so that the children are still feeling comfortable and safe in the room. This week we had rolling painting with glitter. Outside time is a particular favourite of the children. They have been busy sliding down the slide and making sand castle in the sand pit. It has been rewarding watching them venture further and further into the playground and explore all the lovely areas we have on offer. We know they are enjoying themselves when they are reluctant to leave at the end of the session.
