Kindergarten Philosophy

Learning through play

Children are unique individuals created in the image of God. They learn and develop in their own way and time. The most beneficial way for children to learn is through their exploration in play. Play provides the basis for academic learning and helps prepare children for Foundation. It is not only through play that children learn. Children learn through socialising, watching, imitating, pretending, working, describing and listening through conflict resolution.

At Covenant College Kindergarten children are provided with learning experiences appropriate to their age and developmental levels which aim to foster and enhance their language and communication skills, cognitive thinking, sensory awareness, emotional and social development, gross and fine motor development, and their self help skills. Early childhood educators offer a balance of intentional teaching and child initiated experiences to accommodate and scaffold the above skills.
