The children are guided through a range of educational and play activities at their own pace. Our staff create a positive and secure environment where children feel confident in exploring their surroundings.
Children from 1.5 years to 3 years can attend our playschool and don’t need to be toilet trained. Our curriculum allows the children to learn through play while experimenting with sand, water play dough, the use of colours, numbers, sounds and various arts and crafts. The activities encourage their creative, emotional, social and physical development.
The aim is to prepare the child for life. We introduce to each child the skills and qualities necessary to live life to the full in an independent, safe and happy way, developing the child to their full potential. The children explore the world through their senses and their own activity. They develop a love of learning and enjoy working, which, hopefully will stay with them throughout life, offering children the opportunity to realize their potential, in a non-competitive environment and seeks to promote:
- Self-confidence and self-esteem
- A sense of responsibility and self-worth
- A sense of responsibility for themselves and their actions
- Independence and adaptability
- Co-operation with others
- A sense of community respect for the rights and needs of others
- Concentration and persistence in completing a task
- Initiative and self-motivation
