Thematic Indoor Play
One of the child's basic needs is to feel secure and know they will be taken care of and loved. At Canopy, our teachers will nurture each toddler's emotional confidence and independence as they slowly work into a routine where they can comfortably and safely separate and reunite with their primary caregivers.
Opportunities for Parents
Playgroups provide parents with an excellent opportunity to draw from a pool of knowledge and emotional support by bringing together parents and children in one setting, creating a modern day ‘village’.
Cognitive and Linguistic Development
At Canopy, we believe in the importance of early exposure of a second language and conduct activities in both English and Mandarin. Studies have shown that bilingualism strengthens cognitive abilities and can allow children to be more creative and flexible.
Experts agree that children begin to develop their social skills between the ages of one to three. In a playgroup setting, children will have many opportunities to socialise with others in their age group, and in a guided environment with activities that can further promote quality development in social skills.
