Aim of the playschool
Our aim is to provide a nurturing, stimulating, educational and happy environment for your child where they are respected, loved and made feel like the special, wonderful little people they are.
Being a playschool we teach the children through constructive and educational play. We do a lot of one on one work with each child using educational toys and games. We focus on improving and developing fine motor skills, perceptual skills, problem solving, creative thinking, social skills, and gross motor skills. Our teaching style incorporates both Montessori teaching methods and mainstream teaching methods. We also follow and implement the principles and methods of attachment parenting and child professionals such as Althera Solter, and Dr Sears. Our curriculum will consist of various themes that last for 3-4 weeks. Maths, literacy, arts, science, social sciences and technology will all be presented in fun ways using the current theme. Music Box music lessons and Clamber Club will visit us once a week and is already included in your school fees. There will also be baking/cooking, tuckshop, gardening and messy/sensory play once a week. We also have a variety of pets for the children to interact with and take care of, including chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish, and a Hamster.
