Afternoon Classes

Afternoon Classes

All children who are toilet trained and are aged 2 years 6 months plus have the option to stay for lunch and join either an afternoonday class for Mandarin or Creative Activities. In addition, we also offer a Transition to Primary School class for children aged 4 plus.

All groups have their lunch together and share conversation (in English) over a relaxed meal around the table. After lunch we all help clean up. Please send in your child with a named packed lunch, (remember to ensure no sweets or sugary sodas). The children then separate into the different groups.

Children aged over 2.6 years may attend on days other than their regular school days by arriving at 1:00 pm.

A small fruit snack and drink are offered during the sessions.

Transition to Primary School

Children aged 4+ are taught letters and numbers through artistic activities and exercises. They practice writing the forms of the letters and numbers as well as consolidating the concepts with games. This class must be attended 3 afternoons (Monday, Wednesday & Friday) in order for the programme to be followed effectively.

To discuss your child’s individual needs, please contact your child’s teacher. We all aim to work together to prepare your child for an easy transition to the Primary School of your choice.
