Our curriculum covers:
- Communication and Language
This development involves giving each child opportunities to experience a rich language environment to develop his/her confidence and skills in expressing him/herself and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
- Personal and Social Skills
These involve helping each child to develop a positive sense of his/herself and others, to form positive relationships and to develop respect for others. Each child also develops social skills and learns how to manage his/her feelings, to understand appropriate behaviour in groups and to have confidence in his/her own abilities.
We provide plenty of opportunities for each child to be active and interactive and to develop his/her co-ordination, control, and movement.
Development in literacy involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and control a pencil/write. At Millwood House they are given a wide range of reading materials (books, poems and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
We guide the children to make sense of the world and their own communities, to explore, observe and find out about people, places and world foods.
Children are provided with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers and calculating simple addition in fun ways and using shapes and measures in games.
We provide a 'Home Corner' in the Teenie, Tweenie and Pre-School Rooms and it is interesting how children will decide to dress up in some of the fancy dress outfits available and role-play in these areas with their vivid imaginations. Also we organise activities in music, movement and dance.
