Our Mission

"To foster the love of learning in each child, inspiring them to grow into resilient, healthy and creative members of their community."

© 2019 by Little Explorers Playgroup

 

Programme

Our Playgroup is designed to offer activities that are built on a holistic approach to learning where attention is focused on children’s physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual well being, as well as cognitive aspects of learning.

 

 

Indoor Environment

We offer resources for hand-eye coordination, gross motor coordination, music, art, language and practical life activities. Our thoughtfully prepared indoor and outdoor learning environments have been developed to facilitate parent learning and to support the needs and interests of children under 3.

 

We are a community where infants and toddlers experience:

 

  • Basic trust in themselves to be an initiator, an explorer and a self-learner

  • An environment for the child that is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing

  • Time for uninterrupted play

  • Freedom to explore and interact with other children

  • Involvement of the child in all care activities to allow the child to become an active participant rather than a passive recipient

  • Sensitive observation of the child in order to understand his or her needs

  • Consistency, clearly defined limits and expectations to develop discipline
