At Urban Toddlers we emphasize the development of the “whole child”. We follow the theoretical perspectives of Jean Piaget, who believed that children learn best when they build understanding through direct experiences with people and objects in the world around them. Children are encouraged to “construct” their own knowledge by pursuing their personal interests and goals, guided by trained adults.
We use the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and the Birth to Three Matters curriculum as our manual for planning. We use “Letters and Sounds” phonics program and “Abacus” to teach literacy and numeracy aspects, respectively. We make age/development appropriate adjustments when needed, based on children’s needs and readiness. Reflecting Egypt’s multi-ethnic and multi-lingual heritage, Urban Toddlers offers classes in both English and French as well as daily Arabic instruction.
