At Little Discoverers, we feel it is of paramount importance to build effective relationships with parents as you are the children’s first and most enduring educators. When parents and practitioners collaboratively work together, it will result with a positive impact on your child’s development both academically and spiritually. Your contribution in terms of attending termly reviews and organised workshops will be appreciated.

Below are certain skills which we consider to be vitally important to help your child to have a positive start at our Nursery:

  • Recognising their own name (trays, pegs etc.)
  • Using the toilet unaided
  • Dressing themselves with minimal support
  • Recognising and putting on their own coats and taking personal belongings
  • Speaking using short sentences
  • Recognising primary colours
  • Counting up to 10
  • Taking turns and sharing
  • Caring for each other

Other ways in which you can help to mirror our environment at home and help us with the learning are outlined as follows:

  • Positive praise
  • Setting clear boundaries
  • 10-12 hours’ sleep
  • Encourage writing, cutting and sticking
  • Reading
  • Outdoor play in all weathers
  • Promoting healthy eating and snacks
