Why Poppyseed Pre-Nursery is Special for Toddlers

Individual attention

Poppyseed Pre-Nursery is a specially created

pre-nursery program for babies, toddlers and twos.

Frequent contact allows our staff to give the

personal attention needed  for your child’s

individual growth.

Continuity and consistency establish close ties

The same children see each other two or three times a week.

Being together so often fosters a continuity and consistency

resembling the family setting.  As in a family, children can

establish close ties and move on to form special friendships.

The home -like environment is a familiar setting

Poppyseed Pre-Nursery has the warmth of a home.

The participation of a parent or caregiver adds to this quality,

giving your child a sense of security and safety.  The nursery

becomes an extension of the familiar family environment,

providing the perfect bridge between the home and future

nursery school experience.

Our pre-nursery provides a rich experience

Poppyseed Pre-Nursery is a nurturing, relaxed environment especially designed for your child’s use. Each area is structured for a particular purpose, supporting the range of activities necessary for the richest pre-nursery experience for your child.

The “Playroom” is a large carpeted space equipped with a variety of toys for creative play.  A piano and other musical instruments encourage self-expression with song, dance and creative story-telling.  A special ‘mini-gym’ for physical activity and movement allows your child to develop confidence and self-assurance.

The “Art Room” allows the children to explore the sensory world with pleasure

and spontaneity, developing imagination and creativity.  Paint, collage, play-dough, planting seeds, water-play and cooking are among the activities your child will enjoy.  Snack-time, the ‘highlight’ of your child’s social fun, of course, is

included daily.
