Developing 4 year old children become adept at using language. Children are able to express what they feel through their experiences in the world around them. For our new students, we aim for children to feel comfortable listening to English spoken to them. For our continuing students, we aim for children to feel confident using English words and phrases learnt in the Preschool and Kinder Classes. We also aim for children to freely manipulate the English they learn and use it to interact with fellow classmates and teachers in daily settings.
English is introduced through a combination of play, singing, arts and activities. Children are encouraged to explore English through their 5 senses.
Students may choose between a 15:00 or a 16:00 Lesson Start.

Approximately, 3 Saturdays every month, from 11:00 – 12:00, Free Lessons are scheduled as a free service to children who attend the Play Kids Program. Free Lessons are not a compulsory part of the program. Students are free to attend as they wish. Free Lessons offer students an opportunity to meet other students and teachers that they might not meet during their regular weekday lessons.
