The environment is organized into learning centers that support children’s growth and learning in all subject areas such as literacy, math, science, art and music. The preschool is equipped with educational materials from the United States. Outdoor playground is available on the premises.
Circle Time activities (most important part of the day in terms of structural academic and thematic aspects of learning/development) takes place after breakfast, followed by arts and crafts. Additional teacher-directed activities that promote the development of fine-motor skills, creativity, and academic learning, take place throughout the day. Literacy learning and development is highly encouraged as it is an integral part of our daily activities. Children learn how to read and write naturally and effortlessly through our carefully planned literature-based curriculum. In addition, children have ample opportunities for self-guided play during which teachers build on children’s interests in order to facilitate meaningful and contextual learning.
During outdoor play in our garden, our sports teacher sets up various fun obstacle courses in order to foster children’s physical gross motor development. Additional music lessons with our music teacher take place in the afternoon and on rainy days, when children explore musical instruments and participate in rhythm based musical activities.
