Developing the right thinking skills at The Big Umbrella will set your toddler up
for a lifetime of learning. We recognise that each child develops differently but
every child benefits from being given learning opportunities that are stimulating.
The wider the base of associations now, the deeper the knowledge base in our future
At The Big Umbrella family, we put the child first and all our processes adapt around
nurturing your child's innate richness. Our teachers develop loving relationships
with the children so that the process of discovery is filled with a sense of harmony
towards the self and the world.
As a child transitions from imitative to imaginative play, he/she is learning how
the world works, where he/she fits into it, and is also developing a limitless ability
to expand it.
At The Big Umbrella we guide our toddlers towards imaginative development knowing
fully well that these are stepping stones for them to be more creative, have a richer
vocabulary, develop greater self-control, and emerge as leaders among peers in time.
Whoever heard of a toddler sitting still? Our classrooms and play areas are interactive
and ever changing to accommodate the toddler's need for experiential activities.
At The Big Umbrella, we see activity as the foundation for toddlers' interactions
with the world: from creative field trips to group play sessions; our toddlers are
always on the go and expanding what they know.
