Curriculum & Daily Routine
At Bracken Hill we have developed a creative curriculum, which nurtures and respects the individual personality of each child in an interactive, friendly and learning environment. Our objective is to develop and encourage each child by creating this environment, which stimulates their natural curiosity and ability to learn.
Within our curriculum we allow the child the opportunity and flexibility to achieve their potential, feel safe and secure, develop strategies to build resilience, make choices, learn self expression and stimulate a sense of identity and belonging.
Through active participation, both individually and in groups, in art and craft activities, jigsaws, dough, pegs etc, the gradual build up of manipulative skills is achieved for writing
In addition number and letter recognition and comprehension are accomplished through games and suitable classroom activities. Emphasis is placed on story telling, rhymes and songs
We also encourage children, with the help of their parents to follow up on classroom discussions by bringing in relevant information particularly newspaper articles, books etc or collecting natural history specimens for the nature table.
We encourage the celebration of international cultural festivals to broaden their appreciation of the world around them.
We are happy that on their departure Bracken Hill children are confident, articulate and eager to learn as they further their education.
