Developing Relationships in the Afternoon!

Forming and developing  relationships is an important part of  kindergarten life. It  is always a pleasure to observe  the afternoon  children taking risks as they become courageous in initiating  conversations and playing alongside others.  Fun, laughter and  repetition helps to consolidate  these developing  these  relationships.  Coming down the slide James turned to his friend and said, "Gain!"  Simple words like this encourages the game to continue.  Teachers support this as they stand back observing and knowing when to step in. Te Whaariki  (Early Childhood  Curriculum) states   that  children develop strategies and skills for initiating, maintaining  and enjoying  a relationship with other children. (Contribution Goal 3).
