Emphasis is on learning through play in an environment planned to encourage discovery, independence and social interaction. In order to develop self-esteem and social competence, children are encouraged to help themselves, take initiative, and become increasingly independent.
The goals of the kindergarten language and literacy program are to enable the children to broaden their communication skills both orally and through reading and writing. Key to the success of these goals is the development of positive dispositions to learn because they see these processes as enjoyable and rewarding.
