There are lots of opportunities for toddlers to explore working collaboratively with each other or with parents. Whether it be Big Art, parachute play, circle time or problem solving. We help develop their sense of self and sensitivity to the needs of others.

Your toddler is developing their fine motor skills. These involve the use of small muscles in the hands and fingers. We provide an array of tools, materials and fiddly activities for toddlers to improve the strength and co-ordination of these muscles. Good fine motor skills developed in infancy and toddler-hood are built upon paving the way for mastering ‘school tools’ efficiently, for example providing a solid pen or pencil grasp.

Children who get exposed to more words in the first few years of life go on to have better reading ability in later childhood, bigger vocabularies and a solid basis for later communication.

Parents are encouraged to support and play with their babies by describing, explaining and questioning. Workshops incorporate story time, singing, and playing of instruments. Music introduces children to words, helps them learn rhythm, sequences, spatial and math skills.
