Keeping early literacy fun and playful is essential. Too much pressure to read and write can be intimidating and plenty of young children get turned off learning very early in life because they’re forced into it too soon. The foundations of good literacy skills dwell in comprehension and language skills, which are fostered best through listening to stories and retelling them in a fun way. TINY TOWN often like to take a well-loved story book or traditional tale and find ways to retell it in an active, playful and hands on way..

Big messy play

Messy play is the ultimate sensory experience, it is one where our little ones learn to co-ordinate all of their senses to taste, touch, hear, smell and look at all the vibrant colours. They do all of this while coordinating their body position, developing their motor skills and maintaining their balance. Messy play is a social activity, little ones learn about cause & effect, hand to eye co-ordination, they are able to make choices and they are able to communicate these with others. When you see the amount of skills and sensory input that your little one gets from the experience of coming to messy play it is easy to see why. We are around to help and it is common for babies to be hesitant initially. It is a good idea to bring the mess to them initially rather than sitting them straight in a basin or tray, introduce the activity gently. If your little one is overwhelmed, please don’t hesitate to speak to us. We’ll grade the activity and put together a big messy play station just for them

Jazz

Dance Classes should always be pursued from an early age.  By enrolling your child in a dance class it would build up their kinesthetic intelligence and fosters self-expression and confidence. For some children, it is easily identifiable whether they have dancing bones in their genes. Parents will need to find out if dance is something that their kids will even enjoy. With so many different genres of dance to choose from, what are the popular types of dance classes for kids?

When you think about jazz, you might think of tapping and jiving to the beat of Broadway musicals and 40s club lounge music. Jazz dance encompasses many styles like tap, theatre and jitterbug. It’s a very exciting and lively genre of dance and kids can expect to have lots of fun.

Lots of physical movement for sure. There’s a lot of techniques that can also be found in Hip Hop such as learning to isolate specific parts of the body. Jazz is all about finding the passion from inside and radiating it out with excitement. It’s a happy form of dance so kids will be smiling for the majority of the routine

Jazz dancing is an ideal mode of self-expression that is beneficial to their physical form. All the pent-up feelings of anger, angst and sadness can be channelled into passionate, energetic dance moves. After all, Jazz music was invented to be rebellious and expressive. If your child wants to dance like Footloose, then this is the dance for them.

Sharing stories, talking and singing every day helps your child’s development in lots of ways. You’re getting your child familiar with sounds, words, language and, eventually, the value and joy of books. This all builds your child’s early literacy skills, like the ability to listen to and understand words. It also helps her go on to read successfully later in childhood. Reading stories stimulates your child’s imagination and helps him learn about the world around him. It’s also a great time for you to bond with your child and share time together.
