Penang’s nursery and kindergarten normally takes children from 3 years old onwards (unless the preschool has a Playgroup programme). If your child is between 1-3 years old (a toddler), you may want to consider enrolling him/her in The Learning Garden’s Parent-Toddler Programme. The Learning Garden is a popular child development centre / kindergarten located in the York House (at Halaman York). They have a lot of experience in early childhood development, having started operation since 1999.
The Learning Garden’s Parent-Toddler Programme is a once-a-week programme where the parents will accompany their child/toddler in the activities. The activities are based on Themes (for example: Family, Colours, Nature, Transportation). Some of the activities include playing with toys, art & craft, sand & water play, playground activities, snack time, and circle time with songs. The toddler will be able to interact with other children, which will help in his/her development. The programme also provides a good exposure for the child before he/she joins preschool.
