Communication Language & Literacy
Our children are encouraged to communicate effectively, with adults and other children, in a variety of individual, small and large group situations. They are helped to extend their vocabulary through stories, rhymes, songs, role play and the use of educational materials. Books, both fiction and reference, are freely available for the children to explore and at the appropriate time in their development they are taught the sounds of the letters of the alphabet. A wide range of language materials are available to enable the children to learn to read and write at their own pace within a carefully planned phonetic scheme.
