The Kindergarten continues the work begun in the Parent Child Groups and Preschool.
The day is now strongly structured and the children’s play has become more sophisticated.
Their growing bodies and enquiring minds are challenged by increasingly complex fine motor skill building through finger knitting, sewing, embroidery, creative play (building with blocks and pipes to create marble runs) and more complex storytelling and activities.
Rhythmic repetition is essential for the young child and for this reason our days, weeks, months and year are rhythmic in nature. The subtle shifts of the seasons are celebrated in songs, poems, stories and activities, and the celebration of yearly festivals develops a sense of greater community and a rich inner life of feeling, as well as marking the rhythms of the year with joyful thanksgiving.
