We at Ton Infants' believe that early childhood is a precious and magical time when children enjoy live learning experiences. The world is a place of great adventure waiting to be explored and life is one constant discovery. Children are eager to learn and it is our task to ensure they have the opportunities to learn as 3, 4 and 5 year olds do and that is through play. We provide purposeful play activities, both indoors and outdoors, to enable children to learn.
PLAY IS THE CHILD'S WORK.
As they learn how to concentrate, to persevere, to try new things and how to mix with other children. Young children learn through first hand experiences, they learn by doing. The teachers and nursery nurses guide the children's playing. They ask questions and give praise and encouragement. The play is structured and planned using the Foundation Phase outcomes.
These are based on 7 areas of
° Personal and Social Development, Well Being and Cultural Diversity
° Language, Literacy and Communication Skills
° Mathematical Development
° Knowledge and Understanding of the World
° Physical Development
° Creative Development
° Welsh Language Development
In addition to this Religious Education is also taught, unless the parent wishes otherwise.
