magical-activities

Children who join our Playgroup programme can be assured that all their developmental areas would be enhanced such as:

  • Physical Development: Gross and fine motor skills
  • Social Development: Be able to share with friends, take turns, learn to give and take, cooperate with people around them, get along with friends and greet people around them.
  • Emotional Development: Build self-esteem and values, create secure and happy children, and respect others.
  • Intellectual Development: To encourage creativity, logical and thinking skills, language and numeracy skills and problem solving readiness.

THE MAGICAL EFFECT OF PLAYGROUP GAMES AND GROUP ACTIVITIES

  • Play is a way children learn about the world and prepare themselves for future achievements.
  • Play contributes to a child’s emotional, physical and intellectual development.
  • Through play, a child learns so many vital skills such as eye-hand coordination, gross motor skills, social skills and listening skills.
  • These games help children grow, learn and most importantly, have fun together.

THE MAGICAL EFFECT OF PRE-READING SKILLS

  • Matching: When we read, part of what we do involves matching. Children learn to match shapes, patterns, letters and finally, words.
  • Rhyming: Research shows that children who can understand about rhyming words have a head start in learning to read and, even more, to spell.
  • Letter Skills: As well as looking to letters, children need to learn what sounds the letters can make.
  • Motor Skills: Since reading and writing are best taught together, pencil control is important.
  • Concepts of Print: This really means “how we look at books”. Following print the right way, turning the pages, looking at pictures, “where are the words…?”
  • Language skills: The more experience children have of language, the more easily they will learn to read. Your child needs to hear and join in conversations (with adults and children), and listen to stories and poetry of all sorts.
  • Direction: Print goes from left to right. We know that but children need to practice it (especially left-handed children).
