  • ensure that our children have positive attitudes and dispositions towards learning;
  • develop good social skills;
  • enable children to learn skills of attention, concentration and persistence;
  • place language and communication at the heart of learning;
  • lay the foundation for fully proficient reading and writing;
  • develop early mathematical skills and concepts;
  • enable age-appropriate knowledge and understanding of the world in which children live;
  • promote healthy physical development;
  • enable children to be creative in their responses to their world and in their development of skills.
