It takes time for a young child to process new information and become confident in a new environment and it may take several weeks or longer before you notice your child joining in with the activities in class. Rest assured however, that even though it might seem like they aren’t joining in they will still be absorbing everything and learning. Often you will notice your child singing songs from the class at home or in the car or another familiar environment before they will feel ready to join in at the class. Parents with children in the preschool or primary 1 classes or learning an instrument are encouraged to discuss any concerns they have about their child’s progress with the class teacher and have the opportunity to observe their children in the class at the end of each term during our parent sharing.
