How we work

  • We teach each skill component separately and provide children opportunities to practice to achieve mastery and so self confidence.
  • We will provide feedback to the Centre on kid’s needs and progress to use within their activity planning and reporting to parents, or report to parents direct if required.  Reporting will be in line with best practice for pre schools.
