Babies to Under 2 years

 

Play is one of a child's most natural actions even for under 2 year olds. As an early childhood centre, we cater to individual needs of young babies and toddlers, meeting their needs in consultation with their parents .Very young babies are growing and developing rapidly and can be profoundly and positively affected by the types of stimulation and interaction to which they are exposed. For this reason our experienced and well-qualified staff work hard to provide our students with carefully selected ideas, materials and activities designed to stimulate their physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual and creative development; all of which are interrelated.We believe that rich early learning experiences- primarily in the form of ‘play’- best support very young children in the development of the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes which will predispose them to a lifetime of learning.Through play children most easily learn to express, explore and extend their understandings of the world; release energy for physical and emotional health; build relationships,develop language and social skills as a scaffold of their early learning years. For this reason both adult and child-directed play are a central feature of both our curriculum and everyday schedule.
