OUR PLAYROOMS

To cater for the varying ages, children are divided into the four age groups, as follows, each with an experienced member of staff in charge who can offer help and advice to parents if required.

Baby Room (0 – 2 years)

It is a difficult decision for parent to make, to return to work and leave a very young child in the care of someone else, our staff understand these problems and work closely with parents to provide their desires and needs for their child. A room specially provided for baby’s play and a dedicated sleep room, plus a loving and caring environment ensures that the home routine your baby is used to, continues.

Parents are asked to provide nappies and creams for their baby and to advise us of any special diets or needs their baby requires

The Toddlers Room  (2 – 3 years)

 In this room, your child experiences their first exciting steps into such activities as hand painting, colouring, gluing, modelling and are taught to recognise shapes and colours.   All toddlers are taught to play together and share. Feeding them selves and drinking from a cup is quickly learned and nappies soon become a thing of the past.

Our Early Learners  (3 – 4 years)

Our early learners build on their artistic and creative abilities and very quickly learn to enjoy music and dance.Role-play is very important at this age, and children are encouraged by free play to further their independence and develop their social and imaginative skills.

An introduction to the main areas of the Curriculum for Excellence (Outlined in more detail below) provides this age group with a good foundation from which to begin their pre-school year.

Pre-school Class (4 – 5 years)mili

Our pre-school children receive a wide and varied curriculum, based on the main areas of the Curriculum for Excellence, endorsed by  Ministry Of Education, Mauritius.

Children are encouraged through play to develop their self-confidence and independence and in a stimulating environment. They are given the opportunity to listen, think and build on their language and communication skills. Their creative and artistic abilities continue to be developed and they soon learn in a fun way all about every day things of life.

Before starting primary school most children will be able to write their own name and recognise numbers, some will be able to write letters of the alphabet and do simple maths, providing that important foundation from which to   start their early years at school. Learning is at all times presented as a source of fun, thereby stimulating their young minds, and never at any time is pressure exerted.
