Going to ‘big kid school’ is a big deal for your child. With less individualised supervision and instruction in a class of twenty five-year-olds, your child will need to build up the skills that will help them thrive in their new learning environment.
If you’re looking for child care in Bexley that can help support your child and transform them into a life-long learner, Turtletot is the place to go.

After all, a kindergarten teacher’s greatest concern isn’t whether their students can read and write; it’s whether they can pay attention, manage emotions, and interact positively with their peers in the classroom.
This is where we come in. As educators, we incorporate critical developmental skills — emotional maturity and independence, social maturity, concentration, motor coordination, and language skills — into everyday play-based experiences based on your child’s interests.
