Children who understand and express their emotions are more likely to build successful relationships, do better academically and overall have better social skills. Educators assist children to develop independence skills to self-regulate their emotions.
Social Skill Development
Children are encouraged to develop healthy positive relationships by learning to negotiate turn-taking to develop friendships as they play and cooperate with others.
Gross and Fine Motor Skills
The Kindergarten children will develop a range of motor skills such as throwing and catching balls, hopping, kicking balls and running around obstacles. Our Teachers will encourage manipulative development enabling them to develop strong fine motor skills.
Cognitive Skills Development
Our teachers encourage children to be critical thinkers by developing cognitive skills helping them to develop their attention span, memory and problem-solving skills. Cognitive skills help children to assess their own ability to reason out tasks and find solutions.
Our teachers use open-ended play opportunities and resources to integrate the exploration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics into your child’s learning environment.
Early Literacy Development
Literacy development starts early in life. Our teachers use play-based approaches to help foster children’s Oral language development, Alphabetic Code (alphabet knowledge, phonological/phonemic awareness) and build their understanding of print and its use.
