smileKindergartensmile

At CEHS, we define the early years as those between the ages of 4-5 years. Our aim is to provide the best possible learning experiences for young children. As students progress through the programs, they continually build upon and develop their independence, self-confidence and sense of responsibility for their learning.

The flexibility of our Kindergarten program allows teachers to encourage and develop each child’s individual interests. The framework in the early years acknowledges that young children are constructing their own meaning and provides a framework that gives support for them to be active learners and inquirers.

Play occurs in both indoor and outdoor environments and provides a context for our youngest students to feel comfortable, express themselves, and to satisfy their natural curiosity. Teachers use these opportunities to reinforce social aspects such as caring for others, fairness, and personal responsibility.

Areas of learning:

Our curriculum constitutes three prime areas and four specific areas of learning.

The prime Areas are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

The specific Areas are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
