As part of our commitment to engaging parents and families, Wu Kai Sha Kindergarten offers a number of workshops & webinars during the year. These are delivered by teaching staff and sometimes by outside providers, to allow parents to develop further understanding of our programme and relevant issues concerning early childhood development.
Thursday, 23rd September: Developing Self-Management Skills in Young Children
This session will have a particular focus on K1 age students, but is also open to adults of K2 children. Self-managing learners are able to make choices, persist, solve problems for themselves, access resources for their play ideas, and use social skills to get others to help them. The aim of self-management is for children to be self-regulated rather than adult-regulated. During the Webinar we will talk about resilience, choosing and completing tasks independently, resolving conflict, developing awareness of and taking responsibility for physical wellbeing, and taking responsibility for personal hygiene, including toileting.
Thursday, 7th October: Outdoor Learning and Parent Volunteers
There is a multitude of research demonstrating the benefits of being outdoors to children's well-being, mental and physical health, and learning skills.
We invite you to join us for a Parent Information session on Outdoor Learning where you will be able to find out more about the benefits of being outdoors to your children's health and learning development, and get some practical information about places and activities.
* Please refer to school communications for details about how to join each webinar
