Dolphins (4 to 6 years)
The Dolphin group is for children aged 4 years to 6 years old. Group leaders work closely with the children to provide them with the knowledge and tools to feel comfortable and prepared as they head into the school environment. This includes helping children feel competent and capable of asking for help if needed and having the resilience to persevere in the face of obstacles.
The program builds a child’s confidence by allowing them to make choices, talk about themselves and their feelings and accept the feelings of others. They are given opportunities to follow instructions and simple rules and to accept consequences for their actions. They are also encouraged to have an active approach to learning and problem solving.
School Readiness objectives are given a particular emphasis for children in this group.
