Our Approach to Early Childhood Development (ECD)
Early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring, and discovery. It is also our belief that our preschool program should consist of positive and purposeful strategies designed to help children meet their individual goals. Our classes are unique, we have the responsibility to assist children to achieve and function at their optimal developmental level. The mutual respect and collaboration between parents, teachers, aides, children, and peers are of vital importance in helping children meet their goals of independence and self-awareness. Developmentally appropriate, child-centered activities where children can be active participants in the learning process are critical. This paired with teacher-directed learning activities ensures optimal learning and success. The classroom strives to provide safe structured experiences in an inviting, comfortable, organized atmosphere that promotes active discovery and choice-making to encourage the development of confident, socially conscious human beings.
As a Christian school, our number one priority is to instill Christian values from a young age so that learners can follow the right path, learn about right and wrong, and develop independence. We believe in promoting the learner’s social and emotional development by encouraging learners to socialize with other learners and providing a safe home to express themselves. It is also important for us that all our learners are equipped learners with the required skills and knowledge for the next phase of school by providing a strong foundation in literacy, mathematics, writing, and reading. Last but not least we promote physical development by providing a sports curriculum that is specifically designed for young learners and providing a play environment that encourages lots of time and space for energetic noisy play.
