There are two classes in Pre-School. Please see below for our expectations for the year ahead and information about our curriculum. Click on the + icons below to find out more.
The philosophy of the Pre-School programme is to help children develop their self awareness and to become confident and independent. Play is an important aspect of Pre-School and we aim to provide an attractive environment that will stimulate learning. Children are given the opportunity to investigate and experiment at their own pace and to foster their own interests. School is seen as an extension of home and it makes use of the cultural diversity present in the classroom as a basis for recognizing the value of each and every culture represented.
Classroom activities are arranged to give the children an introduction to foundation skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening, mathematics, art, science, and social studies, music and physical education. These are often taught together by developing more than one skill at once through units of inquiry.
