Foundation II : The threshold to formal school education

Lead Teacher : Arifa Sultana

At Little Red Hen Preschool, the child development and learning between five and six years is consolidated under the Foundation II Learning Program, which we consider the threshold to formal school education.

During this period children are now building a stronger sense of their own identity and their place in a wider world. Children are learning to recognise the importance of social rules and customs, to show understanding and tolerance of others, and to learn how to be more controlled in their own behaviour.

Learning and playing in small groups helps to foster the development of social skills. Children now become better able to plan and undertake more challenging activities with a wider range of materials for making and doing.


In this phase children learn effectively in shared activities with more able peers and adults. Literacy and problem solving, reasoning and numeracy skills continue to develop. Children’s developing understanding of cause and effect is encouraged by the introduction of a wider variety of equipment, media and technologies.

  • Circle time / Music and movement Rhymes / Show and tell / Vocabulary enrichment through reading and story time, rhythm and balance
  • Literacy : Listening, speaking, reading and writing
  • Numeracy : Number work, mathematical ideas and reasoning and problem solving
  • Snack time : Time to share with friends
  • World around us : Investigate and think about the world
The Class Children to Teacher ratio at Little Red Hen Preschool & Early Years is never above 9:1. According to research conducted by USA’s National Bureau of Economic Research, small class size and low student teacher ratios were one of the most vital elements in early childhood education settings to future academic achievements.
