This is the time when learning through the senses on a semi-concrete level is at its peak.  This is the time when fundamental attitudes, language skills, social habits, basic knowledge and most of the skills which are necessary for formal learning are acquired.

At this time, the child needs a great deal of love, attention and guidance.  By providing enough opportunities for play, both indoor and outdoor, by providing well chosen toys and exposing the child to to language(stories, rhymes, poetry) books and music, their vocabulary and general knowledge will develop dramatically.  They learn faster and benefit more from these early learning experiences, than a child who is left to his own devices.

The teachers at Bedfordview Baby and Toddler Centre strives to help and guide the children through this stage with the love and attention that they need.
