Ages: 2 – 3 years

In the Joy and Confidence class, emphasis is placed on a developmental approach, where we strive to meet the needs of each child as a unique, individual learner.

Children come to this class with a wide variation of skills and attributes and this will be respected as we encourage them to learn, grow and develop.

Some areas of focus are:

  • gross motor development (running, climbing, swinging, biking, etc.)
  • fine motor development (holding a marker correctly, building a tower, threading, etc.)
  • music (daily singing sessions, action songs, finger plays, etc.)
  • visual arts (clay, playdough, collage, cornflour, etc.)
  • social development (sharing, taking turns, problem-solving, building relationships, etc.)

Children may enroll 3 or 5 days a week from 8:30am to 12:30pm with the option of extended learning through our After School Clubs in Term 2. Each class has one head teacher, one co-teacher and one nanny.
