In Funny School, children are respected, nurtured, and challenged. They enjoy close, warm relationships with the adults and other children in their classroom. They frequently interact and communicate with peers and adults; they do not spend long periods of time waiting, being ignored, or isolated.
Our educators frequently engage children in meaningful conversation, expand their knowledge and vocabulary, use open-ended questioning, and encourage problem-solving skills. They teach important concepts such as mathematics and early literacy through projects, everyday experiences, collaborative activities, and active curriculum. Each child’s progress is regularly assessed and we make adjustments as necessary.
Our students are able to make meaningful decisions throughout the day. They can choose from a variety of activities, decide what type of products they want to create, engage in important conversations with friends and exercise their curiosity.
I would like to create a Dramatic Play Area is each classroom, where the children can ‘dress up’ and would like to ask parents to check around their home for hats they no longer wear, jackets, shoes, scarves, and if you would like to donate your child’s Halloween costume that would be wonderful.
PTA-Parent Teachers Association
I would like to thank those parents who offered to become members of the PTA. We will meet once a month at a time that will suit the majority of our parents, which will probably be at the weekend at Sego Fredo.
Mummy and Me Group
I would like to invite Mummy’s with young children to a “mummy and me” group at the school, this group will meet every Thursday at 16:00pm. The first meeting will be on the 14th November. We look forward to welcoming you all to Funny School.
