Curriculum


PRACTICAL LIFE – In this area, the child is taught skills for daily living, at the same time, developing manual dexterity, hand-eye co-ordination and concentration.

SENSORIAL – This area provides opportunity for the systematic refinement of the child's five senses, sensory discrimination is the basis for all learning.

LANGUAGE – Each child's language skills are enriched; vocabulary, conversation and comprehension are developed. Using the phonetic approach, the child learns to associate letter shapes and sounds following onto the construction of their own words. This results in the spontaneous development of reading and writing. Stories, rhymes and poems are included in our daily program.

MATHEMATICS – The child establishes concrete understanding of quantities, numerals and essential foundation for all later learning.

CREATIVE ACTIVITIES – Our aim is to teach music, movement, drama and art in a truly creative way. We equip the child with the skills and confidence they need to express themselves freely.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES – The development of the motor skills are vital to a child's development as a whole. All sporting activities are encouraged on a non-competitive basis.

OTHER – Cooking, gardening, nature walks and community projects will always form part of our curriculum.

The children take an active part in caring for their school and for each other. This promotes an atmosphere of respect for others and for the environment in general. We aim to prepare the children to take their place in society and to contribute positively to the world around them.

"The child is the father of man"
