Learning with Dr. Lesley Jones: New Year New Rooms

This month we welcome many children and families to our Centres for the first time. We also welcome back the many thousands of children who will be transitioning into new rooms, and are part of our Affinity Education family.

Educational Programs During the Festive Season

At this time of year, many families are turning their thoughts to the festive season and family holidays.

The importance of using the Abecedarian approach to improve toddlers’ language skills
