Their specialised EduDrama methodology, which uses drama, role play or imaginary play as tools for creating confident and expressive communicators, characterises every programme and working practice in our centres. Each specialist curriculum is carefully structured to enhance creativity, develop cognitive ability and ignite a passion for learning. Considerable attention is paid to creating a positive and enabling environment: teaching takes place with small group numbers in bright and colourful studios, facilitated by an international team of lively educators, passionate about creative education and children.
The Tots’ Classroom offers a series of early childhood development courses for two* to six year olds. These courses seek to enrich children’s ability as they develop. We use directed and focused play that helps a child master their physical, motor, locomotor, cognitive, communication and social skills. The aim is to help the child get ready for formal (primary) schooling.
These skills are important because children without these requisite base skills will be behind their peers in school. Teachers will be struggling to “fix” these children so that they have these base skills before being able to go on to the content that is required. As such, teachers will be encouraging and giving the content-based work to those children who already have the basic skills like spelling, speaking, arithmetic, reading, thinking, attention and are able to do seat work. Those without these abilities tend to get left behind.
Our centre focuses on these skills. We hope that your child will be able to progress well, to be able to engage, to tell others what they do and to have sufficient development in cognitive and intelligence when they first start formal school.
