Childcare can be fun for your 2-year-old, and they’ll learn a lot too.
Your child will learn through play, having lots of fun spending time indoors and outdoors.
They'll paint, draw, play with sand and water, sing, share stories, climb, and build.
Your child will be supported to create relationships and make friends.
They'll learn to take turns and play together.
They'll develop their independence and confidence in themselves as they choose activities to do and try out new things.
Your child will develop their communication and language skills as they play with their friends, take part in small group activities and talk about what they're doing.
Time for you
You'll get some time to yourself to rest, take on part-time work, catch up with friends or housework, do a food shop... whatever you use the time for, your 2-year-old will be in safe hands.
You'll also be able to discuss with the childminder or nursery staff your child’s development and how to further support their learning.
The more you feel supported by others the more you can support your child with their feelings and development.
