2.5 years to 5 years
In the preschool years, children become capable of understanding more about the world around them and are constantly on the lookout for new objects, ideas and activities. Their curiosity is endless as they try to understand the “why” in everything.
Preschoolers are able to express themselves verbally and use language as a social tool. Friends and playmates become important. Preschoolers enjoy engaging in fantasy play together, imitating grown-up activities such as building or playing house. Physically they are becoming more independent and prefer doing things by themselves.
All about kids encourages this independence and aims to feed this curiosity. Our centre is designed to provide hands-on experiences where children can interact with one another, learning materials, ideas and events. We offer a wide variety of materials that are accessible to the children and that support a range of play experiences. Staff work and play along side them, supporting their interests and developing abilities.
Activity centres in the preschool room include:
