Curriculum areas such as art, music, blocks, jigsaws, manipulative, literature, drama and movement are provided for a daily basis. These are not always seen as separate activities but are often integrated throughout the day. Central to our curriculum is our belieft of the value of play. At Pre-School we recognize play as being the most valuable context in which children learn cognitively, socially and emotionally. Rich play experiences during the pre-school years can lay a strong foundation for the years ahead including adding enormous benefits to academic skills such as reading, writing, maths, science and the arts. At also allows children practice in developing important relationships, communication skills, to think for themselves, to gain confidence, to develop curiosity, confidence and self control and to exchange ideas. Play also involves diversity and choice, helps children see more than one perspective and acknowledge that there can be more than one right way. It is also important becasue it is self-motivated and inner-directed which is important to the children's learning throughout life and it also helps them become confident in themselves as learners. There are times where children learn from instruction and scaffolding. These times usually occur during the development of projects involving the children's interests and life experiences. Intentional teaching also holds a place within our curriculum.
