Bishopslea’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) class provides a healthy and safe environment for its pupils. It reflects our ability to provide a caring and stimulating environment, where the girls can grow in confidence, and develop to their full potential through interactive learning. We are a dedicated team of teachers working hard to prepare our pupils fully for Grade 1. The various skills we teach include:
- School readiness. The overall aim of the ECD department is to prepare the girls for school readiness. No formal reading or writing is done.
- Language and social skills, which enable the girls to ask questions, follow simple instructions, and mix easily with their peers.
- Self-care and behavior, with manners playing a crucial role.
- Gross and fine motor co-ordination and pre-writing efficiency. These play an integral part of development, as does visual and auditory perception.
- Shona, music, computers, and physical education - all taught by specialist teachers.
