My Milestones
Getting children prepared for school, by turning skills into fun activities!

Introduction to our i-Challenge curriculum

Through the ‘i-challenge’ curriculum we provide access to a wide range of opportunities that promote pupils’ emotional, physical and intellectual development. Activities provide pupils with opportunities to develop the ‘building blocks’ of successful life skills, such as teamwork, resilience, responsibility and friendship.

The i-Can Milestones is for our youngest pupils to join in on the fun of ‘i-challenge’, where we focus on how children learn through building relationships, building teamwork and building confidence.
