Your child is now enjoying mark marking with a variety of materials, like crayons and paints. He or she is also enjoying picture books and listening to stories, helping their literacy and vocabulary to increase.
With the right help, your child will also be showing signs of independence, like eating, dressing and going to the toilet, which are all worthy of celebration to build their self-esteem and further development.
From make-believe games to construction and creative tasks, sharing and co-operating are now a big part of the way your child plays. It is important to grow these new skills while offering a structured environment that prepares your child for school.
During this time, your child requires care and warmth balanced with opportunities for independence, allowing them to stretch their literacy and numeracy abilities.
We prepare our Lions ready for their big adventure to school. The ‘lions’ will have more responsibility throughout the day to help increase their independence in preparing them for school. We encourage children’s independence with more responsibility such as special jobs or helper tasks through the usual routine and by setting more challenging tasks.
All lions have their own special book where we record all of their writing/mark making and pencil control. As the children learn more about going to school, we will help with their transition by having regular group discussions, about their new school and sharing their own experiences from their school settles.
