We run a dedicated transition to school programme as part of the pre-school programme. Based on the early childhood education curriculum, this programme has been designed to support children and their families when starting school. When children turn four years old,or if they come to us at this age, they are automatically entered into our Transition to School programme.
We aim to prepare children for school in a number of ways with self-help skills, self-control and communication forming vital pillars of the programme. It has very tangible results; parents can see clearly what progress their child is making at our centre and their journey to the next chapter of their learning.
The programme is designed to help your child understand the world through activities such as growing gardens. They are encouraged to express their creativity through arts, music,dramatics and similar activities. Use of numbers, object sorting, puzzles, counting games etc help them with their maths skills. Songs, games, rhymes, plenty of writing activities, using computers etc helps with their reading and writing abilities. Physical and physiological development is equally stressed as part of this programme.
