Your Child’s Progress
The staff members at Kings Way Nursery monitor and record each child’s progress. For children aged 0 to 3 years the following areas of development are observed by our staff:
the most important area of physical development for very young children is to have their physical needs met: warmth, nutrition and health care. Children from birth to three will go through many stages of large physical development including: learning to roll over, sit up, crawl, walk, run and jump. Fine motor skills are also very important beginning with selfish shakes through to holding a pencil or crayon.
from birth children enjoy social interaction through cuddles, eye contact and facial expressions. Social development also involves your child becoming more independent in feeding, dressing, toileting and expressing their thoughts and feelings.
Very young children use all 5 senses to make discoveries about the world around them. Repetitive learning experiences are very important for children under 3 years old as their memory is still developing. Cognitive development includes: language development, recognition of colors, simple problem solving, basic counting skills and matching and sorting skills.
All children are treated as individuals. We recognize that each child will develop at their own step, therefore developmental stages are used as guidance only.
