Adult Accompanied Programmes


(1½ – 3 Years)

As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. You provide the social-emotional stimulus for them to learn with joy, love and security. Spending quality time with your child, especially when they are very young, does wonders for all aspects of their development.

Stories Alive is a parent-child programme for toddlers aged 18 months to three years. Each session supports early childhood development through a language-rich environment and enjoyable interactive activities including songs, rhymes and stories, brought to life by the verve and vivacity of our specialist educators.

Over the course of the programme, children will enjoy a wide variety of books that give them the opportunity to interact and involve themselves in a story. Exciting drama activities will enrich each child’s imagination, expanding their vocabulary, as they experience the world through different characters and situations.

Young children benefit most when their supporting adult joins in with all the activities. When parents and caregivers sing along and participate actively in each class segment, children will engage at a deeper level, ensuring that learning is more meaningful and enjoyable for all.
