Practical life activities

Your child engages in tasks he/she naturally enjoys doing, such as pouring, sweeping, polishing, etc., while at the same time increasing muscular co-ordination, concentration, order and confidence.

Sensorial Equipment

Our sensorial equipment helps your child to classify countless impressions in order to develop and refine sense perception. This understanding forms the basis for abstraction in thought in all other areas of the curriculum.

Language Development

Banksia prides itself on having a strong language program comprising of three essential components: a strong foundation in phonics, comprehension based on visualisation and learning to read using context clues.


Through our sensorial apparatus your child sees distinctions of distance, dimension, graduation, identity, similarity and sequence and will now be introduced to the functions and operations of numbers.
