Attending pre-school is the first real exercise in which children are separated from the comfort and secure zone of their parents. In order to facilitate this transition, the environment entrusted with their care requires, effectively, to be a place akin to a home away from home for them. To achieve this, we provide a nurturing, happy space with an abundance of interesting and stimulating tools and facilities in order to attract the child and captivate their imagination.
It is in this environment that the child develops and builds self-esteem, learning the significance of his or her own name, items, and friends. The child develops communication skills by interacting with teachers and fellow students. Pre-school is the child’s foundation for a lifetime of self development and progress, and the skills and knowledge acquired here have a formative and lasting impact on the attitude and aptitude of the child in later years.
Research conducted into the impact of pre-school education indicates that children taught at an early age usually have improved social skills, fewer behavioural problems and better grades without the need for special attention. Self confidence gained by learning in a playful manner adds to the personality development of the child, and the positive learning attitude, and basic foundation in language and comprehension help facilitate the child’s advancement in higher phases of their schooling.
Moreover, childhood education specialists claim that young children learn best when they have an opportunity to interact with their peers, and their parents and instructors treat them kindly. They bloom well in a tension free environment and comprehend and learn things better if they are introduced to new things in carefully planned, manageable increments.

Message from the Principal
A child’s education is the most important consideration a parent will face. Knowledge, attitude, beliefs and values form the basis on which to build a strong education and are the fundamentals on which we build and plan our lives. The effects are long term and the consequences far-reaching. Here at Woodlands Pre-Primary we strive for excellence and as our motto professes, we “rise above mediocrity”.
