Transitions and Routines
Your child will follow routines similar to school as they learn to follow adult-led instructions, complete activities and move on to other activities.
Your child will practise sitting in a group to listen to stories, answer questions and learn the rules of waiting, turn-taking and participating in a teacher-led group activity.
Your child will have the opportunity to explore and experiment with a variety of sensory activities, ask questions, find creative solutions and expand language skills to match their experiences.
Games with Rules
Children will be able to play a variety of games including board games and card games. They will practise turn-taking skills, following simple and complex rules, engage in social language including negotiation and compromise.
Going to school can be a big adjustment and separating from carers and meeting new people can be difficult for many of our children. We will continue to practise these skills during the holidays and address areas like friendships, flexibility, increasing attention and impulse control.
Language and Communication
Your child will practise and strengthen their communication skills with their peers and teachers as they learn to participate in turn-taking conversations, negotiating and assertiveness.
Your child will enjoy activities that enhance fine and gross motor skills as the children participate in games and art and craft.
Your child will participate in activities that enhance social skills; ranging from cooperative play to joining in, turn-taking, accepting others’ ideas in play and learning about others’ preferences, similarities and differences.
Music, Stories and Drama
Children will have the opportunity to explore music, stories and drama as both observers (including movies) and participants. They can listen to books being read by facilitators or read their own. They can engage with a variety of existing instruments and costumes or create their own to perform and play with.
Cooking and Community Access
Where weather and ratios allow, children will have the opportunity to walk to local parks or visit shops to purchase items and making simple treats such a smoothies. They will practise simple transactions, staying together and following simple and complex instructions.
