About Kanga's Rooms
Kanga’s Rooms consist of two interconnecting rooms which allow free flow access. The rooms tend to be busy and lively as the children at this age are just beginning to learn to be independent and start doing things for themselves. Children can be very excitable and active at this age and need good support. We support our children during each of these milestones through a variety of resources and experiences. This helps develop curiosity, coordination and physical skills and mental agility. Each practitioner will actively encourage every child to help every child reach their milestones.
Much of a child’s communication at this age happens through play. In order to keep children stimulated and exploring, they are given greater choices. This is done through having free flow between the rooms and where appropriate, the outdoor area.
Staff in these rooms need a patient, calm manner with a good understanding of the children’s needs. They are empathetic to the child’s needs and this transitional stage between baby and toddler.
As your child progresses from Roo’s to Kanga’s, their increasing independence and curiosity will be nurtured in these rooms. This is because your child will have plenty of freedom to play, learn and develop their communication skills using both rooms and the various areas and activities in these rooms.
Kanga’s Rooms will have a slightly more structured day whilst learning through a wide range of fun activities and experiences planned for their continued learning and development by their key person who will get to know them really well. Staff in these rooms need a patient …..between baby and toddler.
