Junior Toddlers (Playgroup)
Children in these classes will be involved in a range of activities aimed at providing them with opportunities to explore and discover at their own pace, using all of their senses. They will be given support and encouragement from our highly experienced and trained team who are all experts in planning appropriate and purposeful play activities for young children. Children will be encouraged to develop independence through establishing routines, such as snack time and playtime.

Senior Toddlers (Nursery)
In addition to the prime areas focused on in the Junior Toddler classes, there will now be more emphasis on the revised specific areas of the framework. As children develop so do their interests and fascinations. We capture the spirit of each child’s interests and accommodate these into our planning. The activities given and topics discussed are used to complement and extend the learning following the children’s own ideas.
Arts and Craft
Social and Emotional Development
Junior Discoverers (LKG)
In Junior Discoverer we continue the thematic approach to planning with the children’s interests being at the forefront of all classroom activities. At this stage, the children are introduced to daily Literacy and Numeracy sessions where they begin to experience a little more structure and formality to the day. This helps to prepare them for their subsequent move to Senior KG.
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Arts and Design
Senior Discoverers (UKG)
In Senior Discoverer we continue with a play-based curriculum whilst following the ETL books through a thematic approach. Children continue with daily Literacy and Numeracy sessions and carry on with the phonics program to Pronounce, Understand, Read and Speak English language. The transition from the ETL led International Curriculum to the National Curriculum will be a seamless process with all the basic training by teachers working together to ensure that children are supported through this change.

Dance & Music
Your baby’s brain is being shaped as she is growing up – starting from her first days of life. Their brain consists of a hundred billion brain cells called neurons. These neurons interconnect with one another, like roads and bridges. The more connections the neurons make, the smarter your child becomes. The formation of these connections are triggered when your baby is exposed to an environment that is rich with colors, sounds, smells, movement, as well as your touch. Introducing your baby to a rich environment that builds her brain is called infant stimulation.
Infant stimulation games consist of activities that stimulate her senses and jumpstart her intellectual as well as physical learning.
Studies suggest that babies who are stimulated reach developmental milestones and become independent earlier. They have keener senses, better muscle coordination and have a more secure self-image.
Babies who are nurtured in an intelligent environment grow up to have better personalities and more advanced intelligence level.
We see a smooth transition from home to school as crucial. Hence, our home away from home environment offers excellent opportunities for children from new born to 6 years to play and learn throughout our individually designed areas and well assisting and supervising faculty of staff. Forging secure relationships with adult is critical for a young child’s emotional well-being. This is why the ratio of 1:3 is used in the Child care. Children will spend time with their key worker, reading stories, playing together and building a secure relationship where the children feel safe and able to explore their environment.
Mother Toddler Program
The child in the infant to toddler age range is capable of amazing learning. The ‘With My Mom’ Mother Toddler program at Kayo is a much sought after program by young mothers for their children in the age group of 1 – 2years of age. The program is an opportunity for parent and child to explore together. There are great advantages of this program that includes parents, grandparents, or caregivers. The parents of this age group are truly at the most “reachable/teachable moment” for parent education. Our program is spread across 108 sessions with structured course content and activities for the parent and the toddler.

After School Programs
After School Programs
Afterschool programs serve children of all ages, and encompass a broad range of focus areas including academic support, mentoring, arts, dance, music, sports and recreation. The activities in which children engage while outside of school hours are critical to their development, highlighting the need for quality afterschool programs in all communities. High quality afterschool programs generate positive outcomes for children including improved academic performance, classroom behaviour, health and nutrition. Communities and businesses also benefit when children have safe and productive ways to spend their time while their parents are at work.
