The Power of Play: Unveiling the Hidden Curriculum

Imagine a vibrant classroom buzzing with activity. Children aren’t just reciting numbers; they’re building towers with blocks, sorting colorful beads, and putting on dramatic plays. This is the magic of play-based learning, a cornerstone of the Oakridge pre-nursery experience.

  • Social and Emotional Development: Sharing toys, taking turns, and navigating conflicts during playtime—these interactions teach valuable lessons in empathy, communication, and cooperation.
  • Cognitive Skills: Sorting toys by color or size ignites critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. Building with blocks fosters spatial reasoning and fine motor skills.
  • Language Development: Through storytelling, singing songs, and engaging in conversations with teachers and peers, your child’s vocabulary blossoms and communication skills flourish.
  • Creativity and Imagination: From dressing up in costumes to building fantastical creations with blocks, pre-nursery nurtures a child’s creative spirit and allows them to explore their unique perspectives.
