Transition to School

Children’s Ark prepares children for the Transition to School and what will be expected of them in a new entrant classroom. We have researched these expectations, and plan for development in life long learning through experiences that capture children’s natural curiosity, and encourages a strong drive for exploration. We have a special emphasis on co-ordination and motor control which children need in order to be able to sit for extended periods

in a classroom, listen and concentrate, hold a pencil and undertake specific tasks. Pencil control, letter formation, early phonics, mathematical and scientific concepts are all included within these learning experiences, alongside motor coordination and brain gym concepts, which are essential to a child’s early learning.
