Early Learning Update

Early Learning Update In April, our Early Learning 2 programme moved from being a half-day programme to a full day programme. This change was welcomed by our parents and our students and it has been wonderful to see how our youngest students have adapted to the change. Here are some thoughts from Ms Natalie our EL2 teacher.

On the 2nd of  April, Early Learning 2 started full-day classes.  There was great excitement in the class that first day as the children raced to get their mattresses to sleep on.

They proudly went to their cubbies and pulled out their blankets and pillows and made their own beds. It is the first time I have seen children excited to go to sleep.

After the beds were made, it was time for their first lunch together.  Although they have a snack together every day this had a different feel.

It was now official that they belonged with the "big" children in the school because eating lunch at school meant that they were staying as long as the other bigger students.

After their nap, they were woken up by the sounds of  "Down by the Bay" which caused everyone to laugh and wake up in a good mood. It was a wonderful day for all of us!

Now that we have followed the new routines for a month, we can see how well they have transitioned showing us what a success the full day programme is.
