Toddlers (2-3 Years)

ToddlersThis stage of a child’s life is a time of transition and a time of huge change and growth. Toddlers move from being totally dependent to more independent, exploring their ability to communicate, whilst asserting their independence and individuality.Language development begins to take form as their understanding and use of words builds rapidly. Learning how to kick a ball, climb stairs and grasp a pencil, are just the beginning of the physical skills that develop.

ToddlersOur team of dedicated educators strongly support your child’s transition to independence through encouraging self-help skills such as toilet training and feeding, whilst offering guidance to support your toddler to interact socially with others and learn important concepts such as sharing.Staff understand the frequent changes in interests and capabilities that toddlers experience and provide supportive teaching to help your child manage these challenges and reach their milestones.
