The Early Years Programme at LGS Defence is inquiry-based and developmental and caters to the individual needs of our diverse group of learners aged between 2 and 5 years old. It is divided into three years – Playgroup, Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten.
During the early years of schooling children experience rapid development; physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and aesthetically. For many children, these years also mark the first transition from home to a group experience outside of the family and into a new physical environment.
The programme is designed to provide students with the opportunity to engage with the world in a hands-on and interactive manner which encourages an active learning approach as they construct meaning from experiences through the social and physical world that surrounds them.
The Early Years Programme allows extended periods of time and space to explore, investigate and play, both in and out of doors, with distinct areas for reading, writing, listening, speaking, art, construction, imaginative play and science and technology.
