The nursery programme is a fully comprehensive programme for children from 2.5 to 3.5 years old. The curriculum aims to build confidence and independence through hands-on maths, science, the arts and language learning. At this level, children spend time in pairs or small groups engaged in specific projects, learning to work and share as part of a team.
A typical day includes:
outdoor free play
Outdoor play is one of the things that characterize childhood. Outdoor play enables young children to learn lots and lots and lots of things about the world. Can sticks stand up in sand? How do plants grow? How does mud feel? Why do we slide down instead of up? How does the overhang of the building create cool shade from the sun?
Circle Time is a time to discuss the theme, introduce a letter, shape, color, number, pray, sing, dance or have show & tell. The children are encouraged to introduce themselves, recite a poem
theme based activity
Arts and crafts activities will stimulate your child's imagination and creativity, helping with physical and mental development.
Snack time is as much a social learning time for the children as it is a nutritional break. Snack Time provides an opportunity for each child to develop their independent eating habits, good manners, and nutrition awareness
Children are exposed to one special activity every day. It could be Sports, Baby yoga, Splash pool, Cooking, Music together, Montessori activity, Trinity speech & drama.
To reinforce the theme, alphabet, number, shape, color introduced earlier.
It is also an assessment as to the goal of learning.
story & rhyme time
Story time helps your child become familiar with sounds, words, language and the value of books. This all builds your child’s early literacy skills, sparks your child’s imagination, stimulates curiosity and helps with brain development
bye- bye song
It is the time to sing say bye-bye song and reiterate that we all will meet the next day.
