Baby KidS ‘Tadpoles’
Our new Tadpoles programme for babies 10-18 months, provides a stimulating environment that develops their foundations for learning. The programme promotes open-ended play, by encouraging babies to develop spatial awareness by exploring their surroundings. Babies develop speech and language skills through rhyme, song and body language. The baby room focuses on the individual needs of each child, whilst also introducing daily routine and play time. Our days will be full of storytime, art, music and daily opportunities for developing fine and gross motor skills in a positive and nurturing environment.
Our program is based on the KidS methodology and has been adapted for babies 10-18 months.
Explorers 10-12 months
They will engage in activities that develop and enrich their thinking, language, sensory, motor and social skills, through exploration and meaningful experiences. They start to master the art of crawling, sitting unaided and are learning to communicate and develop fine and gross motor skills. Babies will observe and imitate caregivers.
Discoverers 12-14 months
They interact with other children, socialize, explore their surroundings, develop hand-eye coordination and visual-motor skills, through simple instructions given by the adult in charge.
Walkers 14-18 months
They learn to have more control over their body. They use their emotional intelligence, fine and gross motor skills and their language.
Our Five Pillars
We have adapted our pillars of expression: Play, Sensory, Language, Music and Motor to achieve integral development objectives in a playful and fun way.
Create socially assertive children, strengthening their first bond (caregiver-baby).
Through different activities, babies will have the opportunity to know and experience sensations related to their body and environment, strengthening their multi-sensory development.
Through sounds, they will learn to recognize their environment, for example, the mother’s voice or the person who takes care of them. Also they will learn to distinguish the sounds that conform the words of their language and recognize basic sounds of their mother tongue.
The parents and baby will share a moment of connection and learning that reinforces this emotional bond. Will have a repertoire of rhythms and songs that they can integrate into daily activities.
Through the experiences of movement and multi-sensory stimulation, we improve fine and gross motor development skills, coordination and balance.
