Teachers at Yo Poppins encourage toddlers to investigate their environment in order to develop skills such as thinking, learning and knowledge accumulation. We strongly believe in forming trusting bonds between toddlers and their teachers. Small group sizes and a low adult-child ratio allow teachers to develop a deeper understanding of your child's personality, likes, dislikes and developmental needs.
Our teachers have a deep understanding of how baby toddlers communicate. At Yo Poppins, children are taught to put their wants and needs into words. This is done through activities for toddlers, like singing, recitation of nursery rhymes, etc., so as to increase their vocabulary.
Children are taught important social skills such as imitating and responding to words and actions; Identifying and being able to name familiar items; engaging in conversations with the help of pictures; following simple directions and asking questions and by introducing various toddler games.
At Yo Poppins toddler classes, we assist toddlers in exploring their emotions, ranging from joy to frustration. We help them gain skills such as patience, cooperation, sharing etc., at an early stage.
Our "family team", made of highly educated and qualified teachers, in First Aide and in natural disasters. YO Poppins has a professional nurse visit monthly to inspect the safety of the centre's environment and to review and discuss any illness that has been reported in the last month.
We focus on the development of all gross motor skills of toddlers such as walking, running and kicking. Gross motor abilities share connections with other physical abilities.
Toddlers' fine motor skills, which include finger and hand movement, need to be encouraged in order for them to progress. At Yo Poppins, we offer a wide variety of toddler activities (toddler games) for your child to develop his/her fine motor skills.
