Morning Huddles

Morning Huddles are a vital part of our daily routine, providing a structured start to the day where children gather to discuss the day’s activities, share experiences, and build a sense of community. This time helps children develop social skills and prepares them mentally for the day’s learning adventures.

The Basics

During The Basics session, children focus on fundamental skills such as literacy and numeracy through engaging and interactive activities. This period lays the groundwork for essential academic abilities, ensuring children grasp key concepts in a fun and supportive environment.
