  • Sand & Water

    These are the basic acitivites that children love! The feeling of sand and water, the many ways that they can be mixed and used lead to discovering maths and science concepts.

  • Books

    Open up a world of make believe. Children love being read to. They listen, learn, concentrate and remember.

  • Play Dough

    This is great for developing hand muscles and building strength, which in turn help painting and writing skills. It is also great fun!

  • Puzzles

    These are fun to play with and teach children about shapes, colours and spatial concepts.They are good for hand coordination as well as memory and concentration.

  • Blocks

    Blocks develop the childs building and balancing skills, as well astheir imagination. Many maths concepts are learned here as well.

Each child develops at his own pace and it is imperative both the teacher and parent recognize this and adapt their approaches to the needs of the child.

I always liken a child to a peach on a tree – no matter how much attention, food etc. you give that tree, the peach will only ripen in its own good time – and it is the same with the child.

If you picked the greenish peach and tried to force it to ripen quickly, it would be spoilt. Just so, if you try to “force” a child to display behaviour and learning that is too advanced, you will “spoil” the child. He’s ready when he’s ready, don’t hurry him up, don’t force him to learn to read or write if he is not ready.

If he doesn’t want to colour in, leave him to play. Our children have enough time ahead of them to do pencil and paper tasks. No amount of coaxing or coaching will hurry up the maturing process.

So the teachers aim to:

*develop a child’s self-esteem and sense of achievement

*encourage the child to express his/her feelings

*provide the child with a secure environment

*develop confidence

*encourage the child to be able to cope with fears, anxieties and difficult
experiences
