Here at Layham Playgroup we involve the children in making simple choices for example:
Children are regularly encouraged to choose a story book at story time.
Children are given choices at snack time with milk or water and a choice of fruit or vegetables.
After registration they are encouraged to choose a friend with whom to play.
They are informed of the activities on offer and encouraged to choose what they would like to do.
There are cupboards which offers them a free choice of activities.
During circle time the children are encouraged to pick songs or nursery rhymes for the group to sing.
They are encouraged to bring in objects or books related to the topic which they can show to the group.
Children are also encouraged to talk about themselves and any special outings, events or celebrations and they may bring in objects, cards, certificates etc. to show to the other children.
We always support the children in their decision making and encourage them to gain independence.
