Programs

Pre- Nursery/ Toddler

Age group: 2 – 3 Years

Duration : 2 hrs per day

In the toddler years, children begin to experiment on a more advanced level than at the infant stage. Their range of motor skills increases, and they begin to progress to a higher cognitive level. Toddlers learn with their entire bodies- they move about constantly, touching everything, experiencing all things, and solving problems on a physical level. Their language skills, in this period of time, are rapidly developing. The “job” of a toddler is to develop his/her self-help skills while pushing for separateness and independence. As a result, toddlers are constantly testing limits.
