Prep 1(For 3.5 – 4.5 year olds)
Our Prep 1 program provides opportunities for children to expand their repository of knowledge, cultivate their strengths and interests, and build rock solid academic foundations. Our approach is to foster a love of learning, problem solving, experimentation and inquisitiveness to provide a solid foundation for your child’s future. The emphasis is on learning through play in an environment planned to stimulate discovery, independence and social interaction. Children are encouraged to help themselves, take initiative and become increasingly independent in order to develop self- esteem and social competence. It is important that children develop a sense of trust and are comfortable in their environment. Children also learn more about writing, vocabulary, grammar and comprehension. They further build their Numeracy concepts and number sense through games and activities that build their passion for learning. We will also help your child develop enhanced confidence, ability to work effectively in group collaborations and develop a sense of respect for all cultures, diversity and the world around them. This is important than other factors to help make the kindergarten year a highly successful learning experience. There is an increased level of emphasis to help your child progress and develop towards achieving different sets of defined milestones.
Children must be taught how to think,
not what to think
