Parent and Toddler Group
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!!!
