Our goal is to provide a home-like environment which is especially important for those children encountering their first experience away from home. We offer small class sizes and ideal student to teacher ratios. This enables the teachers to have a powerful impact on each child's development by giving them the individual attention that is essential during their early years.
The teachers are experienced and knowledgeable about early childhood education. They work collaboratively with one another to support each other in providing an atmosphere that is safe and engaging for all children. They are selected because they represent the values and beliefs of Learn and Play Preschool. Each teacher believes in on-going and open communication with parents. This is provided through:
1) A monthly calendar
2) Assessments on every Monday
3) Daily highlights of the day’s events (What’s app) and School Diary
4) Moments of conversation at drop-off and pick-up times.
5) Parent Teacher meetings once in two months.
6) Guidance and counselling for parents and parenting sessions
The teachers provide a consistent schedule with a balance between teacher-directed and child-centred activities. By providing a setting which fosters self-esteem, builds confidence and is based on respect, it is our goal that the children will be empowered to take risks in their learning. Through guided discovery and hands-on learning, children will be involved in a fully integrated curriculum. The broad range of age appropriate activities will easily engage toddlers and pre-schoolers. The children will be introduced to multidisciplinary experiences including: children's literature, dramatic play, puppet shows, listening centre, arts & crafts, science discovery & nature, cooking, sensory activities, social skills development, music & singing, fine & large motor activities, computer and early math skills. In addition, the curriculum will be enriched by field trips and excursions.
