In this age group, we will build on learning experiences by providing children with an appropriate learning program to develop their dispositions to learn and the skills and competencies they will need to succeed in school and future life. At Kindergarten stage, the learning experiences are enjoyable, challenging and help to motivate and encourage the children to adopt positive attitudes to school. They learn to work together as a team; they develop socially; they have a wide range of opportunities to develop movement and manipulative skills; their imagination and natural curiosity is stimulated. Through play-based learning, the children communicate in a variety of ways by talking, expressing views, agreeing the rules of a game and taking turns. It encourages the need for consideration and respect.
In this age group, we will:
• Offer opportunities for collaborative intellectual exploration,
• Support the development of self-confidence, imagination, intellectual independence and self-efficacy,
• Foster and understanding of the child’s role in their community and in the natural world.
