Curriculum Overview

Letters are discovered through the illustrations of the fairy tales they hear, deepening their pictorial imagination and laying the foundation for a vivid approach to learning and children learn to read out of their own writing. The four elementary mathematical processes are introduced and reinforced through concrete activity, including movements such as skipping, jumping and rhythmic clapping, thus supporting and strengthening different ways of learning. Song and music punctuate the morning and the first musical instrument of these years, the pentatonic flute, is begun. Heart, hands and head are all engaged, as the child finds their own increasingly expressive and creative voice.
