Spark their imagination. Shape their future.

British Council has teamed up with Aardman Animations to bring English language learning to life for preschoolers through the much-loved characters from Learning Time with Timmy.

Our caring teachers not only provide a positive learning experience for your child but also guide you through your child’s language and literacy development. Our playgroups are run separately for children 12–18, 19–24 and 25–35 months of age in our dedicated, large and well-equipped Early Childhood Education Centre.

Give your child a powerful learning experience that will build a strong foundation in English. 

On this course your child will: 

  • 12–18 months: students will engage in play, storytelling, music, crafts, sensory and motor-skills activities. They will socialise with other toddlers in an English-only environment.
  • 19–24 months: students will learn through play, movement, craft and role-play. They will develop confidence in responding to English and feel more at ease to ‘have a go’.
  • 25–35 months: students will learn new words and develop conversational skills through highly interactive and play-based activities.
