Play is essential for children to develop physically, emotionally and socially. Play fosters imagination and creativity and encourages confidence and concentration.
Play is beyond just fun and games and can be used as a therapeutic method to assist kids in coping with emotional stress or difficult behaviours. Play Therapy can be used to help children with a huge range of needs and concerns including low self-esteem, anger management, low concentration/attention, underachieving friendship issues, bullying/being bullied and others.
Our speaker this month is Tara McDonald who will explain why play is so important, looking at the psychological and neurological factors. Tara will discuss:
· Why play is vital to emotional, behavioural and academic development of children
· The developmental stages of play from birth onwards
· Effects of decrease in play time on mental health and general well being
· How parents can support and join their children in play
Summer is here and we are faced with the challenge of what to do with our preschoolers.
But here at Storytime Preschool, we offer something a little different than the average preschool summer program. We have a huge shaded garden where we try to keep our students outside and active while learning valuable skills of coordination, teamwork and self-confidence. Inside the classrooms we have work and play space with experienced nannies and teachers to keep them busy.
Since we focus on different aspects of a child’s development, we have grouped the students into different categories.
Ages 1.6 – 2.5 years old.
For our youngest group, we spice up our summer camp activities with different themes every week. Nap times are also included in our daily schedule.
Ages 2.6 – 4 years old
Here we offer summer fun activities with our facilities like sand play and lots of water play time on the playground. Our camp also includes cooking projects and extra activities like yoga workshops.
Ages 4.1- 6 years old
Our oldest preschoolers enjoy a mix of physical, creative and academic activities; art, science projects, physical education and storytelling.
Storytime Preschool summer camp runs from July until mid August. For more information about summer camps please call 081-646-4535.
As parents we want to see our children happy, healthy and successfully achieving their goals and realizing their full potential in life. During this month’s interactive workshop-event, our guest speakers will be discussing a range of different successful tips and strategies that parents can use to help their children to become positive, successful, self-motivated, life-long learners.
