KG 1 - KG 3


The Pre-school program (KG 1 to KG 3) is designed around the following principles;

  • While young children develop through similar stages they develop at individual rates. They need different amounts of time and support to develop common understanding.

  • Learning experiences must be provided that meet individual and group needs interests and developmental levels. Additional support is provided to children with special education needs to help them increase their potential for learning.

  • Learning is enhanced by interaction and cooperation with others, including adults and children. Through interaction, organized activities and purposeful play children explore and experiment with their environment to add to their knowledge and learn new skills.

  • Parents are their children’s first and most important teachers and play a central role in the lives of their children. When children begin Preschool, parents and teachers form a partnership to support learning at home and school

  • It is an individualized learning experience where children will become fluent readers who can problem-solve strategically and independently. Teachers will work closely with individual young readers, assessing their abilities and designing their learning according to their individual levels and needs.

Our integrated syllabus and thematic curriculum give the opportunity for teaching staff and learners to experience many extracurricular and cross-curricular activities that would reinforce objectives introduced, practice life skills and serve the vision and mission of the school.

Our early childhood program has proven that by allowing learners to work independently, they would work in a safe environment where each one would produce with confidence and very high self-esteem. With close follow up and observation, this system has helped teachers to either provide help for learners struggling or challenge others who are working above expectations.
