When the morning begins, all toddlers are free to play until all the parents have left. After we have put away our toys, we will sit down pleasantly in a circle together. We will sing a song and do a dance, and then we will read a story together, or play a game. After breaking up the circle we will do arts and crafts and make the most beautiful creations, or we play with the puppet theatre or inside the playhouse. After a moment for food and drink we will all go outdoors for exercise and some fresh air. Only when the weather is really bad will we adjust our program and stay inside. Fortunately, there is enough to do in the playhouse or in the construction or kitchen corner. Snuggle up on the reading couch with a good book, or paint, glue, play and mess around at our high table. We work based on different themes such as the seasons and holidays, to which we adapt our program. Based on the theme we organise different activities. We always end the year with a summer party, a pleasant day full of game activities, which we always finish by eating ‘poffertjes’, tiny pancakes, together.
The toddlers are able to play on the grass field, or in the tiled playground that has a big sandbox, swings and a playhouse in which the toddlers are able to crawl and climb. In the tiled playground, the toddlers can play football, ride a bicycle or use chalk to draw on the pavement. We have bicycles in all shapes and sizes, but also pedal tractors, push cars with roofs and even a toy lawn mower. Our toys suit the children’s ages and their developmental areas.
