Junior Preschool - ECCE

The aim of Junior Preschool Education is to prepare the child for life. The teacher introduces to each child the skills and qualities necessary to live life to the full in an independent, safe and happy way. It also develops the child to their full potential. In the Junior Preschool classroom, the children explore the world through their senses and their own activity. They develop a love of learning and enjoy working, which hopefully will stay with them throughout life. Junior Preschool is an education for life, a learning process environment. Junior Preschool is about learning to balance responsibility with freedom of choice. It offers children the opportunity to realize their potential, in a non-competitive environment and seeks to promote in them:


  • Self-confidence and self-esteem
  • A sense of responsibility and self-worth
  • A sense of responsibility for themselves and their actions
  • Independence and adaptability
  • Co-operation with others
  • A sense of community respect for the rights and needs of others
  • Concentration and persistence in completing a task
  • Initiative and self-motivation
