3 YEARS – 6 YEARS
The Pre-School environment comprises a group of children ranging between the ages of 3 and 6. The child spends preferably a three-year period developing and enhancing his academic, social and emotional growth at his/her own pace with the hands on guidance of the Directress.
Language is used and encouraged as a means of communication in all areas of the environment, thereby developing strong communication skills. The alphabet is introduced using their phonic sounds. Working through a series of reading activities, the child is able to eloquently read words from three to four or more syllable words. The child is able to read phonic readers that enforce the rules of reading. The child is also introduced to some early grammar.
The philosophy “to follow the child” is found inherent in all aspects of the environment thereby providing a nurturing surrounding for the child to grow in a holistic manner.
