Kindergarten 2 - Bandicoot

    This is a big year for to exert their independence and personality. At this age the child develops maturity and therefore their learning style may determine a variety. They are likewise preparing to attend conventional school and thus their academic needs have to be picked out and catered to.

    The purposeful play programme is aligned to all our learning materials and sessions with our 3Cs model; Creativity, Concentration and Curiosity. Thus, each area allows the child to learn and develop at their natural pace and values the child's individual strengths.

Intellectual Development through purposeful play;

  • Language Development; Children become comfortable with self-expression and are able to speak in the past, present and future tense. They are able to comprehend and follow complicated multi level instructions and are able to use their tenses correctly. They are also able to reason in a conversation.
  • Literature; As their vocabulary, language and comprehension ability strengthens, they are able to fully tell stories, jokes and even riddles. They also engage in reader's theatre where they act out stories and gain an understanding of setting, characters and plot.
  • Sensorial & Conceptual learning

  • Scientific knowledge is deepened with theories about living and non- living things and geography.
  • Pre- preparation Mathematical concepts such as numbers 1 to 100, understanding word problems, reading time and realising the value of money.
  • Self Help Skills:

  • Self-grooming - they are encouraged to dress themselves and keep themselves neat and tidy
  • Helping with chores - they are encouraged to help the teachers, clear their tables, put away their toys, bags, shoes and water bottles on their own.
  • They are also encouraged to help others and share their workload.
  • Character Building;

  • Social and emotional development; For us this would be one of the most important areas, as a child's emotional well-being determines their ability to be a socially dynamic and an eager learner. Using activities we foster the confidence in kids to share their feelings, engage in deeper interactions with their friend, develop a positive self image and therefore nurturing their ability towards independence.
  • Improving Social Intelligence; At this age children tend to be quite impulsive as they are setting about to tone up their personalities, so we introduce Honesty, Responsibility and Fairness through everyday opportunities and have them understand the tact that is needed when communicating with others. We believe that instilling moral values, empathy and minding one's Ps and Qs should begin at an early age, so that these values stay on with the child for a long time to come. They are not "taught" to the children, instead we instil them in their everyday actions with us, so that it becomes a natural reflex for the children.
