The Preschool is arranged in two developmental groups; Ladybugs 2-3 year olds, and Bees which has a focus on challenging the older children in their preparations for going to school. This allows us to most effectively structure activities around what interests the children, their different developmental needs for rest, play and also more structured activities.
In our Ladybugs room we focus on building confidence and self awareness through encouraging self help skills, craft, art and music in a nurturing environment. Relationships between the children are also beginning to take shape and positive interactions are being developed through lots of play.
Our biggest little people are beginning to understand something of their world and their place in it. This makes for some really interesting activities as we meet lots of everyday concepts. As a more structured program, the Bees engage with activities that will best prepare them for school. Rest periods are always available for those children that need it, but as the year progresses emphasis increases on more specific school readiness activities.
