Lingwood, Meriden’s Pre-Kindergarten, is open to girls and boys in the year before they begin formal school. Located in a restored Federation home with an adjoining hall and set in beautifully landscaped grounds, Lingwood is a fun-filled, busy place of learning.
Lingwood’s learning program focuses on developing a child who is curious, confident, caring and well-behaved. Children are encouraged to create and explore, discover the excitement of books and experience the joys of music, friendship and physical activity.
The Lingwood program includes pre-numeracy and literacy activities, music and movement, indoor and outdoor developmental play, and visits to the Junior School library. The children also experience lessons with other members of Meriden's teaching faculty including French language, Christian Education and a sports program coordinated by the Physical Education department.
A rich and stimulating curriculum together with the guidance of teachers who are able to facilitate learning for each child, ensures that Lingwood's children are well-prepared to enter Kindergarten.
