When your child is discovering their world, they can be in a hurry, everywhere! Our Toddler programme encourages these young children between 18-24 months to explore, so they are built around toddlers’ limitless curiosity and their natural desire to push boundaries. In this way, they can explore safely, and discover in their own way. A high teacher-child ratio also ensures each and every child is supported safely and thoroughly at this tender age.

Moments in your Toddler’s Day

During their time with us your child will discover the arts and music, drawing and singing, and start developing the understanding of simple instructions, and how to use the potty.

Developing gross motor skills is also a priority. The toddlers’ upper arm muscle strength and stabilising their trunk through the various playground outdoors, and indoor gym activities.

We foster language and social development skills through a variety of hands-on activities in our thematic approach. An emphasis placed on the acquisition of verbal skills through our English and Mandarin teachers’ constant communication.
