EtonHouse Thomson is delighted to launch a weekly playgroup that is rich in explorations for infants. Specially developed for children aged 9-22 months, the adult-accompanied playgroup offers a range of learning experiences within our beautiful, intentionally designed and safe environments.
Highlights of the programme:
- Social - Engaging with others is an integral and vital part of a child’s development. In the company of peers and other adults, there will be plenty of opportunities for your child to observe and develop social skills and begin to make early connections with new people beyond your family.
- Physical - An important developmental domain in infants, physical experiences will help them to master independent movement, object handling and hand to eye coordination, amongst other fine and gross motor skills.
- Sensorial - Infants learn through their senses. A variety of sensorial experiences which include textures, sound, smell and visual stimuli are critical for brain development and the development of skills in young children. We encourage children to communicate their thinking in their own unique way by providing a range of natural materials and learning resources.
- Musical - Infants and toddlers are born musical. Music enriches a child’s cognition, attention span and language development amongst other skills. A music-rich environment with innovative musical instruments will enhance children’s musical exposure and will offer many fun and engaging learning opportunities.
Through these collaborative learning experiences, children will strengthen their relationships with the primary caregivers and will develop a bond that will enhance their learning as they progress to the next stage of development. Parents and caregivers will develop many skills and strategies to engage effectively with young children and enhance their understanding of key developmental milestones and how best to support them.
Make an appointment today to visit with your family and provoke your senses in our inspiring learning environment specially designed for young learners to explore, reflect and create.
