LEAP into Learning

Is your child getting ready for school in 2022?

We invite you and your child to our one hour Zoom LEAP sessions.

LEAP sessions are designed to help children be in charge of their own learning as they work alongside teachers and parents within an engaging and creative space. We use play and active learning to open young minds, develop skills, and foster a love of learning.

We seek to spark the curiosity of early learners as they journey towards starting school.

If you haven’t enrolled for Kindergarten 2022 and would like to attend these play sessions, please contact the school office.

Literacy: Read and Retelling

Book Loving Bears

Read it…retelling stories is the best way to get your ideas out of your head to someone who will listen! Bring your bear or favourite soft toy along to share our story time.

Join with other children as we listen to stories, play with rhyming sounds and explore lots of books.

Reading anywhere and anytime expands children’s vocabulary and interest to find out more. Introducing books early is the key if you want your child to be curious about print.
