Tots pre-school program (18 – 36 months)
Tots pre-school program (18 - 36 months)
The Pingu’s English Tots program is designed to help children aged 18 – 36 months discover the valuable language of English, and the world it can open up for them.
By the time your child takes their first steps, they’ll already have made great steps towards learning their first language. At this stage, it’s the perfect time to introduce them to the English language using a fun, friendly and proven method, and give you the tools to support them throughout the learning process too.
Scientifically proven English Language Teaching
Educational studies have shown that children are able to tell the difference between two different languages from the age of just four months old.
Starting to learn a second language from an early age enhances literacy development in a child’s native language, and even positively alters the brain’s structure to increase the amount of information-processing nerve cells in the area responsible for language processing.

PinguTM was chosen as the character for our programs because of his universal appeal, neutral language and setting, strong family values and timeless quality. Although Pingu and his friends have their own language, the characters can be easily understood through gestures and the rhythm of their voice. And it has allowed us to allow a pedagogically sound curriculum over the videos.
There’s little adventurer Pingu, who makes a good role model for kids of all ages. He’s a proud big brother to Pinga, the adorable baby sister that’s in the same age bracket as children on this course. Through the characters’ lives, tots are welcomed to the English language gradually, using lots of fun and games to make sure the knowledge sticks.
Classes take place in small groups to make sure each young child gets the attention they need in an environment without unnecessary distractions.
Children are given the encouragement and safe space to express themselves freely and gain confidence with a new language. Parents are also invited to attend classes, both to reassure and learn the skills needed to help with the learning process.
The course includes 12 sessions, with 10 structured lessons (one per topic) and 2 creative review labs (one per 5 lessons). It is based on all the key principles of our four-level Pingu’s English pre-school enrichment program, so it’s easy for our young students to continue onto the next level as they get older.
We keep the lesson structure the same throughout the course to help toddlers get into a regular routine. Each class consists of:
- Warm up
- Language Presentation
- Game Time
- Song Time
- Alphabet Time
- Craft Time
- Action Words
- The Body
Pingu’s English provides a valuable selection of high-quality learning resources to assist the learning process, including:
- Story Book 1&2, Story CD 1&2, Song Book 1 and Song CD 1
- Teacher’s resources (Pinguland mat, figurines, letters and numbers DVD, flashcards)
- Worksheets from lesson plan to help with activities at home
With Pingu’s English, parents don’t need to have a knowledge of the English language in order for their child to learn. We will offer suggestions throughout the course to help your child keep learning while at home, regardless of your grasp of the English language.
