Do you know all children learn and develop at different speeds?
Some children can share and think of others around them whilst their peers find it more difficult. How your child plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves offers important clues about your child’s development. Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age.

Twisty Tails Nurseries cater for children from as young as three months all the way to five years old. Our objective is to prepare your child for school and help them develop through play, engagement, communication, and education. Here are the goals we set our standards by:

Emotional Development
Children at the age of five should be able to deal with feelings in an age appropriate way. There should also be a reduction in separation anxiety as well as an increasing capability of being able to focus. Children should show independence and are able to distinguish fantasy from reality.

Physical Well-Being
Children at this age should be able to sustain energy levels throughout the day and have some independence in looking after their own needs.

Social skills
An increasing capability of getting along with other children, following instructions, and showing neutral respect to others should be increasingly apparent at this age.

Communication Skills
It is expected that all children at this age be able to communicate needs and wants in a socially acceptable way.

Imagination
Every child should be able to take part in play with other children in an imaginative way, using and creating their own ideas.

Language & Thinking Skills
By this age, the child should possess some reading, writing, counting and recognition skills for language, colour, shapes, and storytelling. Children will carry on a meaningful conversation with another person.

During a child’s earliest years, their brains makes 1 million neural connections every second. Children need positive, supportive experiences with parents and their practitioners. This is important to their brain development. It is all about interacting with each other and reacting to what they are doing.
