THE EARLY YEARS
“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”
― Albert Einstein
Here we appreciate that education is a lifelong process and not just something reserved for those between the ages of 5 - 18. Children love to learn, as they are naturally inquisitive. They love to discover and take delight in being able to use the knowledge they’ve gained. At Tutorian, we want to contribute to a love of learning by supporting children to develop the key skills that will enable them to extend their knowledge further.
We believe wholeheartedly in the value of children starting maths and English programmes at an early age so they can grow in confidence, curiosity, as well as build their numeracy and literacy skills before starting school, which will, in turn, allow them to thrive in the classroom.
Activities and resources provided are colourful, highly engaging, and designed to increase a child’s curiosity and give each child a real sense of achievement whilst developing their skills. Their structure is carefully planned so students can learn smoothly by harnessing their natural enthusiasm and zest for absorbing information.
Children by nature tend to enjoy learning if given material just right for them. At the beginning, we focus on the development of fine motor skills, number recognition, and vocabulary. Daily story time is essential. Concentration skills are developed over time so that children can focus for longer periods. A “give it a go” attitude is encouraged; which removes the fear of trying new activities and promotes the idea that it is great to challenge yourself to try when faced with new problems in the future.
At first, we must gauge the abilities of your little one and set stimulating work at just the right level for them. We will develop pencil control skills in small steps. Students will practice drawing simple lines, and will gradually further develop their ability by drawing more complex lines, curves, shorter lines with acute corners, which require greater dexterity. Along with developing their pencil skills, early learners will get to grips with numbers and gain confidence in maths. The English programme works in a similar way, where early learners will develop their vocabulary and grasp the fundamentals of reading, word recognition, and letter formation. Students develop their abilities with a positive learning experience, which will prepare them for school and beyond.
The effect of preschool education has been proven to boost academic performance right up until secondary school, so the sooner children begin to learn, the earlier they start to develop skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit. The most important thing is to develop a natural curiosity so that children will always love to learn. It’s never too early to start developing the essential skills necessary to succeed.
