Spark their imagination. Shape their future.

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

Our expert 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 of 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 happy experience to build a strong foundation in English with British Council’s specialised playgroup courses. The earlier the better.
