Group O

Group 0 is a very important year in a child’s education at Elckerlyc International School. For many of our children it will be their first experience of school.
Our philosophy is to recognise the uniqueness and individuality of each child, support the child’s interests and build up his/her self-esteem and confidence.

Our aims in group 0 are to:

  • Provide the best possible foundation for your child’s education based on the Foundation stage Early Learning Goals. (These continue through into group 1)
  • Provide each child with a safe and warm environment for learning.
  • Allow children to settle into the routines of school life calmly and confidently.
  • Stimulate each individual child with a wide range of experiences and activities.
  • Promote independent learning.
  • Develop basic skills and knowledge.

Our criteria for admission in to group 0 is that the child is 3 years old, is dry and able to use the toilet unaided.
