We are very much aware of the importance of this experience and how a positive or negative experience can impact the child’s potential to learning. We strive to offer every child a happy first school experience to ensure a positive attitude for future learning.
We know that each child is unique, with unique needs and unique experiences. We strive to create a warming environment for each child where he or she can reach their full potential. Our school program at Prand Play Center is well- balanced. We know how today’s world is fast paced with more pressures placed on children to undertake more and more formal learning at early ages. Through previous experience, we know that difficulties which may arise later in schooling, can be prevented by ensuring that the child’s perceptions, thinking skills and problem solving abilities are often challenged and practiced at an early age. These skills are essential for success in later learning and we strive to provide children the means to develop these skills.
Our three-year school programme are based on the principles that children learn by physically experiencing new things. Our program is made up of activities such as music, art, drama, fantasy and movement. Our ability to develop children both on a sensory and perceptual level assist to equip your child for the pressures of big school and provides the opportunity for them to succeed and grow.
We use Movement and music to promote learning in the brain and these activities are regularly used in many of our other learning areas. We offer a planned daily schedule but children still have the freedom to naturally move between activities as they see fit. We believe that young children should be taught in a flexible environment so we strive to create a gentle balance between work and play.
