WHAT DO SESSIONS INVOLVE?
Pre-school sessions ensure children use their body, know their body and enjoy their body. Every child needs to learn how to use and maintain their flexibility, muscular strength, coordinate hand and eye movements and know when to be still.
Phonological Awareness (PA)
PA sessions – ages 4 – 5. Using only well researched, evidence-based programs and methods, letter sound awareness, concepts of print and critical sensory skills are targeted.
English for non-English speakers is experiential. Singing, reading, drawing, listening and playing are all crucial in a child’s immersion into a foreign language.
