The children’s learning environment is designed to promote self-directed play. This is accomplished by establishing well-equipped learning centres. Learning centres allow children to select activities that best reflect their own individual interest, needs, and developmental levels.
All areas engage children in the use of their senses. All foster social, communicative and verbal skills.
Play is the business of childhood; when children build with blocks, explore their environment with all their senses, create with art material, listen to stories and communicate ideas and feelings, he/she is working. Play and learning are inseparable companions. Our program offers free play combined with teacher guided activities.
