Junior 3

Your toddler is learning to talk and he or she is eager to understand. Your toddler asks “why” for a lot of reasons. Sometimes he wants an explanation. Sometimes he doesn’t know any other words to express his curiosity about something. Sometimes he’s just pleased he’s asked a question that gets a lengthy answer. When you’re reading to your toddler, he’ll be able to point out, say, all the cats or all the balloons on a page. He’ll be able to think about these things because he’s seen them in the real world. Exposure to the ‘real world’ including a walk to and from a school where he spends a few hours in the company of others, outside in the garden growing things and in the playground. This brings a safe, fun and active lifestyle to the joy of our toddler.
