Does baby brain already have you looking into daycare, playgroups and preschool? Well, you’re going to want to hear all about Canterbury Baby Cove – the sweetest new infant centre in Singapore that has it all!
Thinking about your baby’s education when bub is still a bump is not unusual – we’re all about planning ahead, mama! With a plethora of play centres and care options to choose from, we know the baby scene can be daunting, which is why we’re giving you the low down on Canterbury Baby Cove – the cutest new infant centre dedicated entirely to bubs aged 2-18 months!
Making its grand opening in January 2016, Canterbury Baby Cove offers a truly sensory experience in the Alexandra greenery, situated behind Kent Ridge Park and very near to IKEA. Believing that children “nurture in nature,” it is the only infant centre in Singapore which dedicates 3,000 square feet of play space to bring out the avid explorers, discoverers and meaning makers in infants and toddlers, all while under the watchful eye of caring teachers!
There’s a huge garden, sand, water and everything in between to give bubs a healthy start to life, rolling over for the first time or taking their first steps surrounded by the rich outdoors! Canterbury celebrates the individual, encouraging both structured and unstructured play to develop a child’s love of learning and exploration. There’s music and arts everyday, storytelling, an edible garden and a gym to develop those important cognitive and motor skills (tummy-time, anyone?). There’s even a dedicated nap room for those tiny tykes to rest their heads after a long play in the grass!
We are big fans of Canterbury’s holistic and child-centric programme, where it supports physical, linguistic, cognitive, social and emotional intelligence by offering a variety of play to foster different paths of development for each unique child. Through play, bubs learn to make friends, cooperate, communicate and solve problems – how very diplomatic!
The centre offers a safe, secure, intimate, and predictable environment – trust us, routine will be your middle name when baby is here! Canterbury Baby Cove dwellers will be lovingly doted upon in playrooms with a low teacher-child ratio. You can rest assured knowing your bub is playing confidently while you get what you need to get done, may it be going back to work after maternity leave or simply carving out some much needed me-time.
Canterbury has a commitment to partner with parents to ensure a smooth transition between home and school. Canterbury teachers value each parent and their invaluable insights into their child’s wants, needs and interests. Psst! Look out for their parent-accompanied programme set to launch in July 2016, which will make for a great soft-intro to their drop-off centre so you can get to know the Canterbury team alongside your baby.
If you’re looking for a safe and engaging play experience for when your bub is ready to roll, with a schedule catered to your family’s needs, why not pay Canterbury Baby Cove a visit while you can still work in some pre-newborn flexibility into your diary?
