Children move into the second phase of childhood at the age of six or seven. This change is marked by a new readiness for formal learning.

In the first grade, children are immersed in the world of fairy tales, where the basic elements of writing, reading and the four mathematical processes are learned through aesthetic experience. A classroom community that will remain in form with students and teacher for the next seven years is being felt for the first time.

At this age every child is an artist. The teachers address each child’s learning with pictures and stories, in color, rhythm, movement, outdoor time and music. What is learned becomes a living part of the child.
