Pre-nursery class overview
This class is a gentle introduction to nursery combining free play with more structured time for arts & crafts and music. Since children learn through example and imitation, all teachers adopt a ‘hands on’ approach.
At Sunshine Playgroup, we understand that children have varying attention spans, and each child is different, so we provide a variety of enjoyable and stimulating activities during this session, from which the children are free to choose during free play.
During the art aspect of the class, children are encouraged to experiment with a variety of materials such as paper, paint, glue, fabrics, buttons, feathers and many more. Each class focuses on a different material. Some children will happily spend about 10 minutes at the table, some much less, depending on their attention span.
This messy, creative session is followed by free play and then music time. This involves singing nursery rhymes and songs, experimenting with percussion instruments, rhythm, dance, movement and is generally a lot of fun! Whereas the art element focuses more on individual skills, music time encourages group involvement. The class ends with a light snack. Please see our food policy.
