About this Event

We will be holding a workshop (with a choice of two dates for you to choose from) for parents and friends looking at the Foundation Stages in Early Childhood, , discussing how both the school and home environment work together to give your child a solid start to formal education. This is recommended for parents of children of all ages who are looking to get an understanding of transition from Steiner Waldorf Early Years setting to mainstream education.

We will be giving some practical guidance on how to enable the building of strong foundations to facilitate an easy transition in the primary stage: How do we encourage such skills as:

  • Independence and Confidence
  • Concentration and Focus
  • Language, Literacy and Numeracy
  • Social and Emotional capacities

Questions around the international schools interview process, the international schooling and application system in Hong Kong and how to recognize and support your child’s unique nature will also be discussed.
