Our Preschool is a true ‘home away from home’ experience with a vertical age group of children between the ages of 2 to 6 years.
Our exceptional team of directresses are trained to communicate and educate passively and positively while encouraging the natural development of each child’s unique needs both in the classroom and on the playground.
Our Preschool focuses on the physical, academic, social, spiritual and emotional development of the child by providing a prepared environment where the child is free to learn, explore and discover within clearly defined boundaries.
Our classroom is a holistic learning experience, which includes the following areas:
The Practical Life area enhances the development of task organization and cognitive order through the care of self, care of the environment, exercises of grace and courtesy and coordination of physical movement.
Cultural subjects expose the child to basics in geography, history and life sciences. Music, art, and movement education are part of the integrated cultural curriculum.
The Mathematics area makes use of didactic materials to enable the child to internalise concepts of number, symbol, sequence, operations, and memorization of basic facts.
Language Arts include oral language development, written expression, reading, grammar, creative dynamics and literature. Basic skills in writing and reading are developed through the use of sandpaper letters, alphabet cut-outs, and various presentations allowing the children to link sounds and letter symbols effortlessly and to express their thoughts in writing.
The Sensorial activities enable the child to order, classify, and describe sensory impressions in relation to length, width, temperature, mass, colour, sound, texture and weight.
