Life is super exciting with a one year old! They are growing quickly, starting to say their first words and taking those first steps. Now able to crawl or walk with support, 1’s are able to explore the world in new ways and want to do things by “all by myself!” One year olds love to be the center of attention, whether it is taking a first step or waving "bye-bye." NALA understands and celebrates these exciting milestones with you, and we lead by learning together. Through songs, rhymes, arts and movement our teachers guide your child through experiences that encourage you and your baby to bond with one another in a multi-lingual environment. NALA is committed to the creation of a joyful learning environment that empowers your child to construct knowledge through collaboration with one another.
NALA learning space is equipped with toys and other materials so your child can play, learn, explore, and make new friends in a comfortable space. Our playgroups provide a relaxed, fun, environment in which to share parenting tips, gain and give support.
Two interactive playgroups are offered for children in the second year of life. First, SMART Babies is a playgroup for the 12-18 month old child. It is a unique program designed with your young toddler’s developmental milestones in mind. The SMART Kiddiesprogram is for children 18-24 months old with a curriculum designed for the specific developmental needs of this age group. Since parents are present during lessons, you can learn a lot of educational techniques to use at home.
Children enrolled in NALA playgroup will be given priority consideration for the Nobel Preschool Pre-nursery class (2 year olds).
