Encourages children to be observant and provides opportunity for building language skills - from basics to more complex.

Public Open Training, Cape Town (2014)

‘It is an excellent programme. Just a pity that not all reception year educators are exposed to the training. My understanding of the programme- it is developed to systematically mediate concepts so that learners are guided to develop an understanding and so that learning is meaningful.’ (Metro Central, 2012)

Training Feedback

I realize that children need to know their basic concepts so that they can develop understanding of the content of the curriculum.
