The pre-school years are a time of wonder and learning for very young children. They are learning about the world around them and they are developing the multidisciplinary skills they need to find their place in it.

They are developing speech and language skills as they learn to express themselves. They are gaining academic knowledge and the cognitive skills they need to process information and think for themselves. They are developing their motor skills as they explore the world and accomplish tasks. And they are learning the life and social and emotional skills they need to look after themselves, get on with other people and make informed decisions.

If pre-schoolers learn in a multidisciplinary way, we need to reflect this in their English language classes. Join us to explore how we can do this effectively.
