THE TODDLER
COMMUNITY

Designed with your toddler in mind.

Toddlers are terrific. We love everything about them – their energy, determination and curiosity – and purposefully created a curated environment designed to help your toddler learn and thrive.

HELP ME TO DO IT MYSELF

The toddler child has a natural drive to be independent. We encourage this by creating an environment where everything is just the right size for them to do things on their own. Child sized tools that fit their tiny hands allow them to prepare a snack and serve it to friends. A miniature broom empowers them to clean up on their own. They learn the skills of self-care and toilet awareness. The child develops a set of concrete life skills and self-confidence – but, more importantly, develops the belief that they can choose to make a genuine impact on their world.

      The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. Our aim therefore is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorise, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his inmost core.
