4.5 – 5 Year Olds
The ‘Starting School’ program develops the foundational skills needed to begin school. Academically, the classes have close links to the Kindergarten curriculum although the major focus is on developing children emotionally.
Aligning with current research, our classes aim to develop children’s’ coping skills, independence and confidence. By creating mildly challenging situations, educators encourage children to use positive responses, habits and attitudes towards adversity and feelings of disappointment. Children are supported as they work through problems and develop resilience.
