In a Waldorf inspired Early Childhood centre such as ours, much of the work of the teachers is directed towards the developmental readiness of the children for Class One.
At this age, the emphasis is on learning through structured, guided and self-directed play in a natural and creative environment as this provides the means by which children develop essential capacities required for this stage of development. This includes self-expression and social skills, creativity and imagination, concentration, cognitive and problem-solving skills, language and numeracy skills among others. Activities in each class take into account the evolving developmental needs of the children, and adults guide as needed to facilitate healthy interactions. The physical environment of our Early Childhood centre is carefully and aesthetically prepared with an emphasis on natural hand-crafted play toys and offers a beautiful garden setting. Read more
