Giving your child the best foundation before Primary School
After speaking to the teachers and Head Teachers of local private schools, I discovered that they were observing children with underdeveloped gross motor skills starting at their schools. Trying to teach core control and good posture to children at this stage is almost too late, as they are having to spend a lot of time correcting the habits they have already developed or attempting to re teach these same skills, or in some cases, referring them to therapists.
Therefore, I have set up the Nursery with the intention of placing a large emphasis on establishing good gross motor skills through purposeful play activities, thus encouraging body awareness and providing the opportunity for children to develop physical literacy alongside their literacy and numeracy skills, and to prepare them for the move to school.
