Parent and Toddler Group
The Toddler Group is currently suspended and underg0ing a few changes.
We hope to be back in February to run in the afternoons.
Please register your interest so we can keep you informed of the changes.
Rain Trees offers an informal parent and toddler group on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 9.30-11.30am. Our parent and toddler group is where parents and toddlers meet to socialise and play in a relaxed, friendly environment.
The group is for children between the ages of 8 months and 2 years old. Each session, which is run by our parent and toddler facilitator, lasts approximately 2 hours and includes a programme of activities such as music, art and play and also includes a small session of singing in Mandarin.
Helper and Toddler Group
We also run a Helper & Toddler group on Monday and Thursday mornings from 9.30-11.30am. This session follows the same format as the Parent & Toddler sessions but will be an opportunity for children to come with their helpers where parents are working or unable to come.
An Example of a session at our Parent/Helper and Toddler group would be:
|9.30 – 9.45am||Welcome and Free Play|
|9.45 – 10.30am||Art Activity and/or Free Play|
|10.30 – 10.45am||Tidy Up Time and Snack|
|10.45 – 11.00am||Story, Singing and Music|
|11.00 – 11.15am||Mandarin Time|
|11.15 – 11.30am||Outdoor Play and Goodbye|
For parents it provides an opportunity to:
|Play with children and nurture a love of learning in a group|
|Share experiences and ideas|
|Relax and talk in a friendly environment|
|Prepare your toddler for pre-school|
|Meet other families living in Singapore and develop new friendships|
For children, it provides a chance for them to:
|Develop social skills including sharing and cooperation|
|Participate in new experiences|
|Learn more about the world|
Most importantly it allows children to get used to our pre-school so when they start school they already know the environment, people and have made friends – we have found that this makes for a much easier transition not only for the child but for Mum and Dad too!!!
