Parent and Toddler Programs
Our Parent and Toddler Programs have been especially designed by early childhood experts to meet your toddler’s developmental needs. The program provides opportunities for refining their hand and large body movements, developing their language skills and enhancing their independence.
All of the activities offered provide enticing sensory stimulation and support your toddler’s healthy brain development as well as providing you with a delightful shared experience with your child.
Beautiful play spaces
Parent and Toddler Programs are run in beautiful and thoughtfully prepared spaces for you and your toddler to enjoy. There are fun learning activities to try out with your toddler and your child is free to choose what interests them. There is so much to choose from too! Every week programs offer:
- self-expression through art and music;
- language games and puzzles;
- activities for developing eye-to-hand co-ordination and visual discrimination, and;
- opportunities for your child to do things for themselves such as prepare food, set the table and wash up their own dishes!
Your toddler will delight in being able to do the real activities they have watched you do for them at home. The play space is set up in such a way that your toddler is able choose activities with the minimum of assistance. The more practice your child has, the more you will be encouraged to step back and watch just how capable they really are.
Group activities vary weekly and always include musical group times (with real musical instruments!) which will bring your toddler so much pleasure. Music and nursery rhymes are used to develop your toddler’s language skills.
Friendly community of parents
The classes are friendly and welcoming and the social aspect of the class means that you can make friends other parents who have toddlers around the same stage as your own. The classes are run by early childhood professionals who can provide you with information about your toddler’s development as well as tips and tricks for play ideas to share at home that will make life heaps of fun and support your child's development.
