    Introducing Social Values

    Learning in a group is a skill that many pre-schoolers are only beginning to learn. Colourful stories and friendly characters gently introduce children to the key concepts of forming a part of a community such as: sharing and helping others. Children can also interact with the stories by watching the animations, following the stories in Big Books, or completing the scenes in the book with stickers.

    A super start to learning 

    Learning is a life-long adventure and like any journey the first steps are the most important ones. Super Safari takes a rounded view of the complex needs of a child, focusing on the linguistic but also cognitive, social and motor-sensory skills. This approach ensures that the materials are highly visual but also give children the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to continue on their learning journey with confidence.

    Nurturing a love for learning

    Super Safari pedagogy is developed on the understanding that children learn through play and when a variety of senses are engaged. Activities such as Total Physical Response (TPR), songs, stories and hands-on crafts are just a few examples of activities that support you in creating enjoyable, multisensory and successful learning experiences and nurture children’s love for learning.

    Introducing literacy with phonics

    Phonics is a well-established method that helps children move from emergent to early literacy. The illustrated phonics lessons in Super Safari encourage children to develop an awareness of the link between the spoken, written and physical form of the word, an invaluable foundation for learning to read.

    An enjoyable learning experience

    At the very start of their learning journey children have specific needs. For many of them it is the first experience of being in a group, away from the comfort of their home. Super Safari uses songs, games and stories to introduce language and social skills to appeal to children’s imagination, create a warm and welcoming class atmosphere in order to make children enthusiastic about learning.


    A confident start in education

    At the same time phonics, social values and CLIL provide a solid grounding for literacy, social and cognitive skills that will prepare them for success in school and in life.

    • Children can grow in confidence  in literacy and numeracy thanks to the Letters and Numbers books.
