Our specially designed DIVINE HEARTS Nursery program offers a transitional stage between the playgroup and Junior Kindergarten. The program is created to help the children develop their social and physical skills by encouraging independence and freedom of choice. There are age appropriate toys that promote sharing and group play as well as developing each child’s individual skills. The children are given plenty of opportunity to explore outdoor play and all the fun that it can bring.
The learn programme focuses on the social, emotional, self-help, and physical development skills necessary for a preschoolers’ development. Although many academic concepts are introduced, the focus remains on each child’s development of an understanding of how she fits into her environment.
The programme encourages the child to examine, create, and language through interactions with teachers and classmates in a safe, nurturing environment. Sensory and repetitive activities transform these new experiences into knowledge.
The programme also includes music, art, and dramatic play to encourage or shape your child’s creativity and imagination. These educational preschool activities promote the development of physical skills, from running and jumping, to dressing and pre-writing.
Language and Communication SkillsLanguage development is the process by which children learn to express themselves and to interact with others. Children are learning the purpose and rules of language even from birth, when caregivers respond to cries, and during the toddler and preschool years, when language is communicated through words, signs, books and gestures. The focus is on developing pre-literacy skills that is: pre-reading and pre-writing skills. Now language is extended to expression. Vocabulary building through identification of common objects, phonetic awareness, and ability to speak 3-5 word sentences are skills we focus on – as a part our thematic curriculum. An activity such as telling, dramatics, conversations and public speaking allows children to assign meaning to new experiences.
