 This is a drop off class but a parent/caregiver may accompany their child to the first class to help settle them in. Parents are able to quietly remain at the back of the class to observe and learn the language if they wish.

What happens in class?

The 55 minute class uses stories, group social games and interactive language activities, nursery rhymes and songs to develop familiarity and build confidence in hearing, thinking and speaking the language.

This class introduces learning to recognise written characters that are relevant to the curriculum (visual familiarity only – these classes are not reading and writing classes). Basic character writing is also introduced.

The class covers same topics as School Age Level 1, so there is a smooth transition to the older aged class for your child.
