Little Adventurers and Little Pioneers are our Term Time only groups that take place on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Children that are aged 2 & 3 years will attend Pioneers and children that are aged 3 years and above attend Adventurers. The groups are a fun filled and provide children with an environment to learn during play and engagement with their peers and carers.
All activities set up within Adventurers and Pioneers are based around the children’s interests and the areas of learning and development that support individual children to progress at their own level.
Independence is supported throughout the session so that the children are ready to progress to school. Children get to choose activities throughout their time with a wide selection of toys and activities to take part in, such as painting, water play, building blocks, puzzles, singing, computer activities, drawing, role play and many more. During circle time children are encouraged to take part in a range of activities from singing songs, stories, letter and sounds, talking about their families and interests etc.
Mark making materials are available throughout the sessions so that children can freely experiment with making marks and giving meaning to the marks. Letter, shape and number formation will be supported by the children being encouraged to use different tools for mark making.
