Community Pre-school we recognise that two-year olds are a distinct age group,
with their own unique needs. The developmental changes between children who
have just passed their second birthday and children who have almost reached
their third birthday are enormous and so provision must reflect these differing
By two, children
have become mobile explorers who have started to develop their independence.
Their language skills have not developed enough for them to make their needs

Progress at age two
When a child is aged between two and three, practitioners must review their progress, and provide parents and/or carers with a short-written summary of their child’s development in the prime areas. This progress check must identify the child’s strengths, and any areas where the child’s progress is less than expected. At Pinvin Community Pre-school we commit to involving you the parent/carer in this process and so will be requesting your input into this review to ensure we have the truest picture of your child.
