Montessori curriculum is used at this early stage to help students learn independency, practical and cultural skills.
This room has two sections. One area of the room is rugged for the children to play, listen to stories and sing. Opportunities for dancing, singing and having fun aim to boost your child’s confidence and help develop individual personalities.
The other section of the room is for ‘messy’ play and is where opportunities to be creative are provided through use of paints, glue, playdough, water, sand, crayons, chalks and art and craft work. Children are encouraged to experiment using hands and fingers.
Children will begin to form friendships, learn to share toys and interact with their peer group. We encourage the children to participate in everyday activities such as helping to tidy up the toys they have played with.
At this age they will begin to recognize objects, pictures and develop awareness for their likes and dislikes. Through word association, stories, songs and rhymes, we help to develop the children’s understanding of the world around them and encourage them to develop their language, knowledge and confidence.
