Why is grade 1 so important?

This is where it all starts!  The foundation is laid and it is a big step to more advanced concepts.  Learners develop a love for a certain subject and they discover their strengths, creativity and different skills.

As grade one teachers, we believe that the key to language art for young learners is to create an atmosphere of encouragement and wonder to foster reading which will make many tasks easier for the learners.  In grade 1, they learn how to accept their uniqueness and to live themselves out.  We believe in developing the learners physically and emotionally.  A healthy body – a healthy mind!
