The program stimulates children’s thinking, communicating, investigating, exploring and problem solving skills. It also promotes physical activity and healthy eating, and helps all children to be ready for transition to high school.

Primary learning includes whole-class, group and individual activities designed to develop an inquiring mind and teach basic learning skills needed for schooling and later life.
