This is the afterschool room. Children are dropped off in the morning to this room for breakfast and drop off to school.
Children are later collected from school and brought back to the creche, where they will change, complete homework, and have a snack, dinner, prior to free play in the garden or inside.
Our Little Einsteins
Stretch & Grow
Stretch & Grow
The aim of the stretch and grow programme is to get kids moving. This course is led by a qualified instructor. This course is beneficial to kids as it focuses on the following areas:
- Development of Fundamental Motor Skill
- Cardio Endurance
- Balance and Coordination
- Body Awareness
- Well Being Education
Most of all the above is completed in a child friendly manner that is 100% FUN for all our kids and staff.
This course is perfect for young kids 2 years and up. This is led by a qualified ZUMBA instructor and gives our little ones the chance to be active whilst enjoying their favourite hits. The classes are child friendly and incorporate child friendly routines from original ZUMBA choreography. Put simply the course is broken down into child friendly steps, with games, activities and cultural exploration added to it. This class develops the child by:
- Developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle
- Making exercise fun and how to implement it into a young persons life
- Fosters leadership, respect, team work, confidence, self esteem, improved memory, creativity, co-ordination, and cultural awareness.
Yoga offers many psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behaviour, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.
The physical wellbeing of our young children is of utmost importance. The academy has set up a football academy in order to teach the young people in our care the importance of teamwork, engaging in a positive manner and following rules. This is a skill that not only sets our later life interactions but also builds a young persons self esteem and confidence
This is introduced to children in a fun and creative manner. It can be implemented via art, stories, visualisation, art and discussions. Children today have a busy lifestyle and mindfulness is of grave importance especially in light of the recent COVID outbreak. This class allows the child to relax and to calm their minds, to focus and to pay attention. Which in turn enables them to understand and to express how they feel, and think and to find empathy within themselves and with others. This allows the child to become content and happy within themselves and to project this outwards in a positive manner. This will equip the child with the strength to face life challenges from now and into their adulthood. A skill that is imperative to all.
We have created an area that allows children to be at one with nature. This is both a sensory and informative area where the children will learn the different types of plants, trees, vegetables and the texture attributed to each. The children will partake in the growing of plants onsite at the creche as well as bringing home items to their families. Essentially the life cycle of the plant etc will be taught to the child in a child friendly manner with the child actively involved in each stage.
This will be taught in a weekly basis and will focus on the health and wellbeing associated with eating the correct foods. The children will be actively involved by tasting the items as per the food pyramid. This will work in conjunction with the weekly menu.
