There are plenty of skills that can develop in the first years of a child’s life. Some infants and toddlers meet developmental milestones slower than expected. It is called a developmental delay.
Early Intervention is the term used to describe the services and supports that are available to young children and their families who are at risk of developmental delays or disabilities. It is like education for school-age kids, meant for infants and toddlers.
Early Intervention helps young children work toward meeting developmental milestones and can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn new skills and overcome challenges. It also increases success in both school and life.
Early Intervention focuses on skills in these five areas:
Our First Connections Programme’s (FCP) curriculum aims to ensure children are willing to explore openly and confidently, thus making learning enjoyable for them. We emphasise on the use of a blended curriculum incorporating both Montessori and Thematic Integrated Curriculums while holding the academic standards of the British Curriculum. Our team corroborates together to ensure our curriculum consistently grows based on the developmental and socio-emotional well-being of our children with evidence from current research.
Inspired by Waldorf and Reggio Emilio approaches, FCP takes a child-centred approach, having teachers as guides while building a child's life skills and independence. It is to ensure that children have the tools they need and the space to explore, express and create new ideas in their present and future selves.
