At KKDC, we are continually looking for ways to enhance learning and development for your children and we have pleaure in announcing that KKDC will now be offering French classes for your children at the nursery.
We will deliver our French classes through song, dance, games, story-telling and drama, all of which are designed to help develop your child's skills and provide you and your child with a fun and rewarding activity to participate in together.
Some of you may be new to this concept and may be wondering if your child is too young for French. Therefore we have outlined some of the key benefits of these new classes:
Learning a foreign language at a very young age can increase a child's critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of mind. Our approach to teaching French for children is built on this belief.
The benefits of learning any language from a young age are endless. Younger children have fewer inhibitions and an innate ability to absorb and reproduce new sounds, a skill which is at its peak before age 3.
Learning a language is also a bridge to another culture and a doorway to a larger world. A second language provides new ways to look at the world and sets the foundation for new opportunities.
We are trialling these new classes until the end of the year and we look forward to your feedback.
The children are having great fun this month talking about the Rugby World Cup. We have been making yummy rugby shaped biscuits, coloured in lovely pictures of rosettes and rugby balls and have painted flags for our display. As you can see from the video, Pre-school have even mastered how to do the New Zealand Haka.
At KKDC, parents now have the option to spread their free entitlement over 51 weeks instead of the standard 38 weeks. Parents opting for the 'stretched offer' will be able to claim free entitlement throughout the school holidays which will help to standardise their invoices throughout the year.

Pausing to listen to an airplane in the sky, stooping to watch a ladybug on a plant, sitting on a rock to watch the waves crash over the quayside - children have their own agendas and timescales. As they find out more about their world and their place in it, they work hard not to let adults hurry them. We need to hear their voices
