Structured Daily Programme

A daily programme has been specifically designed to enable the children to experience a productive and enjoyable time at school.  Due to the different educational levels, the class programmes have been specifically developed to accommodate the different age groups.  These programmes have been structured for the purpose of giving the children a feeling of safety and security during the learning process.  All structured activities are designed to concentrate on various perceptual developments of the child in preparation for primary school.  A balance between the children’s freedom to choose activities they would like to participate in and the teacher directed tasks has been established.

It is an important principle that children should not only learn about the environment, but they should rather learn from it, and we apply this where possible.  The children are exposed to as much of an exciting and varied environment as possible as this is of far greater benefit than learning a large number of facts.  We try to provide many opportunities for the children to create and discover.  Educational shows and special visitors are arranged for the children from time to time and these usually correlate with our weekly theme.  In the light of this we aim to offer themes that are part of the immediate “world” of the child’s life, offering realism and actuality while learning.
