Our Pre- School Program consists of Toddler Ages 1-2, PreSchool Ages 2-3 and PreK Ages 3-4. In our Pre- School Program we have a
daily schedule of planned activities – both play-based and teacher-led. We engage in Hands-on learning through active exploration where
we have activities based on children’s interests. Our indoor and outdoor play space is designed to develop students' sensory motor skills.
Our Pre- School Program educational pathways for toddlers to school aged students are built on our school readiness pathway. This sequence of milestones
and steps provides educational options and choices for our students' development and style of learning which ensures success in elementary school and beyond.
In Preschool we encourage learning by first-hand experience ie. doing, touching and seeing for themselves through play. Our Preschool focuses on “The Early Years
oundation Stage” which forms the basis for education from Toddler to Pre Kindergarten. The Early Years Foundation Stage focuses on certain important areas of learning:
Academic Development, Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, & Physical Development.
Academic Development is learning in and out of the classroom through play, repetition, participation and “show and Tell” The major focus of each classroom is
based upon sequential learning guided by our comprehensive core curriculum. Our child-oriented classrooms are planned environments that contain carefully chosen educational
and play materials. They also build fundamental skills such as counting, sorting and shape recognition.
Communication and Language encompasses listening, attention and understanding, as well as speaking. They build vocabulary, letter recognition, reading readiness and
handwriting skills. Language development is vital as it forms part of the basis for all learning and influences success. In our preschool program emphasis is placed on playing
with the children, getting to know them and helping them develop their language skills.
Personal, social and Emotional development involves self-regulation, setting goals and building relationships. There is a focus on developing self-confidence and self-awareness,
managing feelings and behavior, as well as on making relationships. This is another crucial area of learning and influences how the child feels about themselves and how they learn.
Physical Development covers gross motor and fine motor development. Gross motor skills are developed sometimes inside but mostly outside where children are encouraged to play
with large equipment to exercise their muscles.
