Dear Magic Steps Followers, kindly note that:
Magic Steps Summer School Teachers:
Very busy working on the crafts' planner for the period of April - September 2017...Very interesting themes and activities being prepared based on the Emergent Curriculum which means that we focus on the children's likes and interests before themes and crafts are planned. We also focus on the developmental milestones for each age group - not every group should have the same crafts since children's abilities are different at different ages...and also young children are not able to do things that 4yr olds do! The qualified staff at Magic Steps do take all these things into consideration when planning the crafts since we believe that the crafts are to be done by the children themselves and not by the carers...we are not here to impress parents - our focus is the children's holistic development.
Following the success of the summer school applications for which the demand was extremely good (and we are almost fully booked), we are asking those who are interested to bring their children 3+ at Magic Steps for the weeks between 26 June and 7 July, 18 Sept and 29 Sept. You have to understand that children who are 3+ cannot be mixed with those under 3. Hence I am willing to make arrangements for those who are interested to form a class for these children in the Summer School area. The rate to be charged will depend on those children who are going to attend. My aim is to make it the cheapest possible but there are the teacher's wage and the running costs. Hence those who are interested please send me a private message at your earliest. Thanks.
