Our School vision is Happy Faces, Kind Hearts, Enquiring Minds. All members of the Upper Foundation Phase Team work closely together and support each other in order to achieve the school's aims.
The Upper Foundation Phase Team also work in close collaboration with the Lower Foundation Phase Team.
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 5, 6 and 7 year olds do and that is through play. We provide purposeful play activities, both indoors and outdoors, to enable children to learn and extend their Lower Foundation Phase experiences.
CHILDREN LEARN BEST WHEN HAVING FUN.
The Upper Foundation Phase children are given experiential learning opportunities which enable them to develop in concentration, perseverance and general learning skills and outcomes. The teachers and additional practitioners within the Upper Foundation Phase plan for and guide these learning opportunities. They ask leading questions, give praise and encouragement and extend learning. The activities are structured and planned using the Foundation Phase outcomes.
