What activities are included in each preschool lesson plan and why are they important?

Group Activities/Circle Time

Music & Movement is used to help develop large muscles in arms and legs. These need to be developed before children can be successful
in small muscles activities such as writing or cutting with scissors. This area also helps children learn to enjoy music and basics such as
beat, loud/soft and fast/slow.

language. These are not only important in school and learning setting, but for future life experiences.

Does my child have to attend every day?

Yes. This is for several reasons, with the most important one the well being of the child because the children are more settled when they attend every day. It gives them a sense of belonging and
consistency. Daily attendance also enables the children to from solid friendships. Another reason is that our focus is on education, and teachers need to be able to follow up the lessons with the child
on a daily basis. The class is far more settled, some lovely friendships have been created, and the children's achievements have been amazing.
