Ci Tods

Tods (2 years to 2 and a half)

The Tods environment gives the children opportunities to become more independent, with free access to a climbing area and lots of fine motor and role play activities.  During their time in Tods, children will be able to express themselves creatively, exploring many different cultures and traditions.  Tods expand on the Heuristic Play basics they learned in Tots, exploring the properties of objects – “Does it roll?” Does it stack?” “Does it build?”

There is an interesting research paper written about Heuristic Play for older children here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/322204349_The_experimental_approaches_and_creative_mindsets_of_children_in_heuristic_play
