What does learning look like at Premier Kindergarten?
Premier Kindergarten offers an adapted Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
The foundation stage curriculum is organised into six learning areas;
• Personal, social and emotional development:
This involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings and to have confidence in their own abilities.
• Communication and language;
Involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
• Mathematical development;
Involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating, simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces and measures.
• Knowledge and understanding of the world;
Involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
• Physical development;
Premier Kindergarten provides opportunities for young children to keep active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement.
• Expressive arts and design;
At Premier, children are encouraged to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings, through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.We cater for children of ages between two and a half to five year olds.
We have well trained and qualified staff and provision for enabling environments, both indoor and outdoor to enhance learning.
Our Kindergarten has adequate resources and keeps upgrading these to ensure that we keep up with the ever changing curriculum requirements.
Play is also stressed at the Kindergarten department. Well planned play activities are a key way in which children learn with enjoyment and challenge during the foundation stage.
Our classrooms and outside environments provide variety of spaces, materials and activities geared to promote active exploration and mastery.
