Bring your baby, toddler, or pre-school child to have heaps of fun and help them learn key skills that will set them up for life!
Alphatots sessions are have children giggling while helping develop: – language skills (including sign-language) – speech – listening skills – recognition of letter sounds – reading – social skills – and the fine motor skills they will need for writing! Alphatots classes are fun playful sessions for children aged 0-5 with different levels to grow with your child. Grounded in the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, Alphatots classes help children become school-ready. With games, songs, and stories, the children don’t even realise they’re learning!
There are 3 different sessions to choose from…
1. Alphatots Sounds & Signs: For babies-toddlers to develop early language, listening, and communication skills (including sign language for babies and then speech as they get older).
2. Alphatots Phonics: Learning ABCs! Toddlers – preschoolers learn to match the letters of the alphabet to their English sounds alphabet (phonics).
3. Alphatots Wordsmiths: Preschoolers have fun starting to read short words with Ronnie Robot!
All sessions use multi-sensory activities that appeal to all learning styles. Classes run in Altrincham, Didsbury, Sale, and Worsley.
Alphatots is great for grown-ups too! Adults who bring their children to Alphatots benefit almost as much as the little ones! As well as making friends with others (many of our sessions offer some chill-out time to chat while the children play with toys), adults also gain valuable tips on supporting their child at home. If you are a parent of a child learning English as a second language, all Alphatots sessions will have great benefits for you. Whether it be how to actually pronounce the letter sounds correctly (yes, some of them are surprisingly tricky!) or ideas for how to strengthen little fingers ready for writing when they start school, everyone is sure to gain something to take away.
