The lower sector at Bava School is comprised of our Playschool and Preschool classes. It is the most important foundation in a child’s development. In addition to strengthening socialization skills such as how to compromise, be respectful of others, and problem-solving, Play/Pre provides a place where your child can gain a sense of self, explore, play with their peers, and build confidence.
From here the seeds of the school motto “Learn To Care, Care To Learn” began to grow. Children begin to ask wonderful questions about the world around them. For example, “What happens to the water after the rain? Do birds play?” Young children can certainly learn letters and numbers, but to sit kids down and ‘teach’ them is the wrong way to do it. They learn best through doing the kinds of activities they find interesting, such as stories, dancing, talking to their teachers about the environment and playing with blocks.
Key Skill Development:
- Cognition (thinking skills)
- Self-awareness skills
- Social skills
- Understanding basic abstract concepts (same/different, opposites, similarities)
