Wings For our Two Year Olds

Our learning journey starts with our two year olds. We have 16 places for our children who are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare providing children with a firm foundation for starting school by developing their independence, communicating and social skills. The learning journey for the children is planned using the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The learning is always led by the interest of the children.


This year we have covered Autumn, Winter, Spring , weather, all about us, festivals and numbers. The activities are carefully planned to excite and engage the children and develop their key skills particularly communication and language, physical development and their social skills.


We have a different focus at the end of our sessions everyday:-

  • Write Dance
  • Tummy Time
  • Story Time
  • Number Rhymes
  • Physical fun –throwing, catching and climbing
  • We have special listening times
  • We share our thoughts and ideas
  • We are always having fun!


The environment inside and out is stimulating and the staff are welcoming. Parents and carers love the Wings group, they say they feel their child is making very good progress and this will stand them in good stead throughout the rest of their learning.


The focus is primarily on the characteristics of effective learning.

Playing and exploring 

  • Finding out and exploring
  • Using what they know in their play
  •  Being willing to have a go

Active Learning

  •  Being involved and concentrating
  •  Keep on trying
  •  Enjoying achieving what they set out to do

Creating and Learning

  • Having their own ideas
  •  Using what they already know to learn new things
  • Choosing ways to do things and finding new ways


Staff in the unit provides opportunities to encourage the children to develop these characteristics. This is achieved through the resources that are provided and adult intervention and modelling.


The prime areas of learning and development that are focused on at this age are:

Communication and language “ … children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves….”

(Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage)

Physical Development “…… providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive and to develop their co – ordination, control and movement…..”

(Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage)

Personal , social and emotional development “……. To form positive relationships…. To develop social skills. To understand appropriate behaviour.”

(Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage)
