At Islandbridge we provide full-time care for Wobblers, Toddlers & Preschool / Montessori. Part-time sessional ECCE Preschool Afterschool care with a collection service for local schools.
In our wobbler room there is a high ratio of staff to wobblers (5:1). Activities, meals and sleep times are more structured while still allowing flexibility for individual needs. Our room and activities are specifically designed around a wobblers need for experimentation and exploration. Children will usually spend about 1 year in our wobbler room.
There is a high ratio of staff to toddlers (6:1) in our toddler room. The toddler room has a more structured environment with more advanced equipment. This is an age when children begin to play together. Vocabulary increases greatly and sentences rather than just words are formed. Activities and curriculums are designed around these many changes to enhance their individual development. Children are toilet trained while in the toddler room as staff and parents work together to follow the same routines.
In Pre-school, children are introduced to a classroom environment. They become used to sitting at a table and concentrating for longer periods of time. The Montessori method and other teaching methods are introduced by our trained staff. Children will learn the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics. Our curriculum also concentrates on languages, arts and crafts, the world we live in, music, free play, cookery and personal and social development. Parents are informed on a regular basis as to how their child is progressing. In the Pre-school room children will learn the basics to more than equip them for the school environment.
We provide Afterschool care with collection from local schools. Homework is supervised, a warm meal is provided. Details on Future Weekend & Summer Camps coming soon...
We take the task of nourishing children’s minds and bodies very seriously and ensure that their diet is healthy and well balanced. We provide all meals throughout the day.
