At around 2 ½ years of age our children move into the preschool area. This area provides additional space for large construction play, and here further independence is encouraged. Under the guidance of qualified teachers, your child’s learning is enhanced by providing them ample opportunities to engage in spontaneous meaningful activities – Teachers provide a constant variety of activities active/quiet, messy/clean, planned/spontaneous, small/large group and individual. You will find reading under the trees outside, either self-directed with headphones or group reading lead by staff.
Children love to grow their own food and participate in the harvest and food preparation process. We have our own Kidstown chickens which are cared for by the children and provide a continuous supply of eggs for our cooking.
The rooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and their own level of language, maths, and scientific thought. The different areas allow the emerging interests and individual skills in academics, creative expression and outdoor learning.
