Here are the guiding principles...
- Every child is seen as an individual, unique, strong and full of potential.
- Children should be free to express themselves in unlimited ways through any variety of media and materials (100 languages)
- Interaction and collaboration are integral aspects in their development
- 'Project Work' plays a key role in child-led discovery.
- The environment acts as the '3rd Teacher'
- Parents and teachers play a crucial role as supporters and facilitators
We take Phonics very seriously !
We start our Phonics programme in Nursery through the introduction of sounds as well as tongue and mouth positions, through songs and actions.
Party games play an important role in recognizing and finding sounds. These two skills later translate into Reading & Writing.
Our one goal is for our children to love reading and writing. We never push our children to learn but we believe in the importance of these life skills so much. So phonics games and activities have to be interesting, sensory, physical and most of all exciting!
100% Plant Powered & Homemade
All of our snacks:
-are homemade using wholefoods.
-are naturally sweetened with fruit.
-are organically sourced where possible
-are protein and nutrient dense
