2 to 4 years – 60 minute programme

Thursdays, 3.45pm to 4.45pm

This ‘toddlers-plus’ class is based on the power of storytelling, to create the perfect environment to improve vocabulary, language and communications skills, and increase confidence.
We use music, drama and craft time to promote confidence and learning, and help children to develop rapidly and happily.

CONTENT

Our charismatic teachers read one fabulous book every month. Over the weeks the children’s vocabulary and knowledge grows.
We use a special prop box and/or music/percussion box to add detail to each story, bringing the plot to life and taking the children on a great adventure.

This 60 minute class includes:

  • Focus Story
  • Circle Time with key vocabulary and songs, directly chosen to reinforce new words and learned phrases from the themed book.
  • Art & craft project to reinforce new vocabulary or the characters/concepts from the book.
