The importance of a child’s physical and emotional development in the preschool years cannot be underestimated. Our program includes Munch and Move experiences which helps provide your child with the fundamentals for developing healthy eating habits and exercise. Exercise improves hand-eye coordination as well as building motor skills that promote balance and spatial awareness. These programs also teach the basics of anatomy, learning about muscles and body parts.
Music and Arts
This program captures a child’s imagination and creativity through a variety of experiences. The richer the child’s sensory environment, the more a child’s brain will develop. Listening to music, using imagination and drama. Exploring creative works, including painting and sculpture using dough and clay, all combine to enrich a child’s world and encourages their brain development. This important part of our routine enables your child to spend part of the day exploring their expressive, artistic and creative abilities.
Research has shown that a good early childhood start to numeracy is critical to later numeracy success. During a child’s first year of life, the foundations of numeracy are established. It is the quality and quantity of mathematical experiences which are the main factors in determining achievement later in life. Therefore an effective pre-school numeracy curriculum must cater for a range of abilities, a range of interests and be about more than number counting and recognition.
The literacy program teaches letter sounds (including phonics) in an enjoyable, multi-sensory way through unique stories and songs. This program introduces your child to a new letter of the alphabet each week. They learn the sound associated with the ‘letter of the week’ through the use of an engaging story and unique action for that letter. Each week we compound this information with new letters, building on their knowledge and confidence in their skills.
