Adult Accompanied Programmes


(6 – 18 Months)

Nurturing attachment and security

This single year in a child’s life contains profound leaps in learning and development. There is no other time in our lives when growth is so rapid and visible from day-to-day, moment-to-moment.

PlayNest, for children aged between 6 and 18 months, is where we introduce the importance of family support at the start of a child’s journey of learning and discovery in a safe environment. A sense of security is primary to a child’s enjoyment of discovery and learning, and that is why PlayNest is a programme both for the adult as well as the child.

In PlayNest children will: 

  • Develop social skills through meaningful interactions with teachers, puppets and parents. 
  • Stimulate imagination, sounds, rhythms and spoken words through exposure to age-appropriate language, stories and music in our specially-created Story Time and Music Time series for little ones. 
  • Build sensory abilities through fun art & craft and discovery activities. 
  • Exercise gross motor coordination and develop sense of balance and spatial awareness through gross motor play activities. 
  • Learn the social skills of eating with others while developing a taste for a variety of different healthy organic foods.
