Here at Holy Corner we understand that the best way for children to learn is to keep them interested and motivated – with a close eye kept on helping each child to take the next step.

An example of our daily activities (Monday to Thursday):

  • 9.00 – 9.30am: Welcome the children / Free play / Story time in book corner
  • 9.30am: Open up outside
  • 9.30 – 10.00am: Free play / Weather reporter checks weather
