"Start a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

LEARNING

The pre-school curriculum at Orel-Vine takes a developmental approach to the education of young children, helping them master the basic learning and social skills that form the foundation for all future learning. Children are introduced to drawing, coloring, modelling and painting, numeracy, reading, writing and phonetics. They are taught Science, Numeracy and Literacy. In addition they study French, Reading and Phonetics, Basic Information Technology, Physical Education, Art, Music, Social Skills, Christian Religious Education and engage in all school clubs.

We believe that children learn much of what they need to know through play. Pre-school pupils therefore also engage in self-directed free-play, facilitated by teachers. The children have ready access to and can explore the natural outdoor environment; and extend their physical, emotional, and developmental boundaries while supported by a homely learning environment.


OUR OBLIGATION

In line with our mission, core values, ethos and goals, students at pre-school are nurtured in an environment that promotes their spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth. Orel-Vine therefore provides an environment where love and a sense of belonging are prioritized. Children are encouraged to be expressive. Most importantly, they are brought up to understand God’s love for them. Orel-Vine is every child's home away from home.
