Grade 000 is for children turning 4 within that year.
At this age relationships evolve and bonds of friendship strengthen. Friendships build confidence and inspire discovery and collaboration amongst peers. Whilst teachers set up contexts (areas) of learning, the children theorise and discuss possible solutions, scenarios. It is at this stage where you can begin to enjoy the open minded, problem solving abilities, lateral thinking and uncomplicated approaches of children. Exploration of their own capabilities leads to a better understanding of their concept of self and they develop a great sense of pride as they become more and more independent. Your child will also begin to be exposed to a variety of fun activities like dancing and movement, music appreciation, pottery and ball skills that have been developed especially for their age group. These help build stamina, self-awareness, participation and concentration skills.
