Sensorial

The Sensorial materials allow the children to classify sensorial impressions in an organized, orderly and scientific manner. The Sensorial materials are mathematically graded. They isolate one quality only, keeping the remaining characteristics identical, and also have a built in control of error. This makes it possible for children to learn the names of abstract concepts made concrete in each of these materials such as size, shape, colour, taste, texture, sound, temperature and weight.

Language

Language materials provide children with the keys to expand and enrich their language and the desire to write and read. The sandpaper letters give them the shape and the Movable Alphabet allows the children to arrange these letters to form words that can be made visible to help children acquire the understanding of words and sentences.

Playtime

Outdoor play is fun for children and important for their growth and development. When children participate in physical active play, they are developing their large and small muscles, gaining increasing control over their bodies, agility, coordination and balance. The children will develop abilities and interests in a wide range of domains including spatial, visual, logical and mathematical. Click images for extended gallery...

Emergent Curriculum

We follow the children’s emergent interest and extend their learning through discussion and group work. The teacher has discussions with the children about what they are doing and listens to their responses. The teacher provides the equipment and resources that challenge the children to explore and experiment and then problem solve to develop skills in language, maths, music and arts.

Music

Music activities give the children the opportunity to learn skills such as listening skills, moving expressively to sound and music, experimenting with percussion instruments, naming them and identifying their sounds. Music and Movement helps children cooperate, think and problem-solve and is one of the acceptable avenues for release and expression of feelings, moods and emotions.
