Our Curriculum is structured with stimulating activities that offer a balance of nurturing, playtime and learning.
The quality and consistency in the areas of learning are initiated at an early stage, with an aim to ensure that every child makes good progress.
As children grow into Pre-School, advancement in these learning areas are made with the aim to provide a level of independence and to improve their academic and social skills.

|Each area of learning and development within the curriculum is implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others.|
Assessment plays an important part to help educators and parents recognise children’s progress, to understand their needs, and to support their curricular activities.
At Little Haven, ongoing assessments forms an integral part of the learning and development process.
Assessments are often done using day-to-day observations about children’s progress in school and the observations that parents share. Communications through verbal and written reports are given to parents so parents can appreciate the progress of their child’s development. If there be any emerging concerns, or an identified need, the school will address these with the parent on a one-to-one discussion.
