As we return for the second half of our Spring term, it really feels like Spring has sprung in Wandsworth! Bringing with it an amazing sense of opportunity & optimism.
We're surrounded by signs of new starts, fresh growth, vibrant colour & energy, so tangible it's almost contagious. So we are working hard at Little Starlings to capture all this in our adventures with the children this half term & hope to bring you along with us with the start of our new Little Starlings blog!
The Spring term is often an exciting transition point for a lot of the children, some taking their first steps towards independence, possibly leaving their parents for the first time on a regular basis, forging those first friendships, all the while discovering new skills & talents.
For the children who are more established in their routine it's an opportunity to really push boundaries, test out new skills & explore the relationships they've begun to develop, which also provides great opportunities to work on their speech & language skills with rich storylines in their individual play, Whatever stage the children are at, we work with them to make sure they feel completely at ease tking these little steps towards major milestones.
This term we have an array of activities & themes for the children to really embrace the joys of messy play, exploring textures & colours we'll get the children planting out window boxes to nurture through the team. Crafts that incite creativity as well as focusing on fine motor skills. This term we're also introducing some movement exploration with kids' yoga sessions to help children improve their body awareness & gross motor skills, while also giving them an energy outlet. Let's not forget Easter, it wouldn't be Easter without a Bonnet for the occasion, this gives the children a great opportunity to explore their creativity as well as their individual personalities.
We're so excited to get started & to bring you along with us for the journey! Please follow this blog to catch the next update & if you're new to Little Starlings or would like to know more, please don't hesitate to Contact Us.
