Student Skills

No pref. on University degree. Student should LOVE working with very young children as this will be based with our very youngest little learners.

Expected Pupil Outcomes

The pupils will develop more confidence in the area of talking and their listening skills will improve with an increasing attention span. The pupils will become more ready for reading and writing through practical and small group activities. The pupils will learn through play learning skills of sharing, turn-taking and communicating to each other.

Expected Student Tutor Outcomes
