CHILDCARE & ACTIVITY PROGRAMMES

Our Toddler Club activity programmes are for children aged 1,5 to 3,5-4. From Monday to Friday we offer four-hour sessions of educational activities designed especially for toddlers.
These carefully structured activities focusing on music, nature, movement, and arts and crafts are ideal for toddlers, combining playful learning with skill development. There's plenty of fun and laughter while the children create, learn, sing and dance – together and at their own pace.

Our principles are based on a variety of pedagogic styles and the latest research in education. The activity programmes are delivered in fixed groups of up to ten children, who are lovingly cared for by our experienced teachers and carers. Change can be stressful for young children, so before the programme begins, we give each child the chance to settle in and gradually get to know this new environment away from their family.

KEY ACTIVITY AREAS

Music - Nature - Arts & Crafts - Movement

Music

 

This activity area taps into the natural pleasure that children derive from 'making music' and introduces them to the magic of music through making sounds and noises with their own voice and playing simple instruments. More information…

Nature

 

This activity area provides a playful introduction to some basic natural and scientific phenomena. A ready-made learning environment with child-friendly materials stimulates the senses, encourages their urge to explore and inspires them to investigate for themselves. More information…

Arts & Crafts

 

This activity area allows children to explore their creative side. Our wide-ranging activities develop their individual creativity and help to build their confidence. More information…

Movement


Children have an inherent need to move. This activity area helps to develop children's muscles, motor skills, posture and balance through fun exercise and creative dance. More information…

STAFF STRUCTURE


In order to ensure that your child feels comfortable with us and is able to derive the maximum possible benefit from the activities on offer, we place great importance on maintaining excellent carer/teacher to child ratios, and on the constant and reliable presence of our experienced colleagues. For every ten children, there are two teachers and a carer tasked with looking after them and offering emotional security as dependable care providers.

SETTLING IN

Your child's time with us starts with an individual settling-in phase. We provide you with comprehensive information about our principles for settling-in and work with you to plan the start date and arrangements for this phase. The first 'getting to know you' session involving your child is an important step in their forming a bond with staff.
