Curriculum Followed

Our Kindergarten curriculum Is based on principles of learning through play, developing your child's social, personal and academic skills, and engaging them through fun and practical activities to develop literacy and math concepts. 

The Foundation Stage Curriculum is enhanced with the Early Years International Primary Curriculum and focuses learning around themes such as Treasure, Patterns, and Food, placing learning in a fun and meaningful context and inspiring success. 

Approach to Learning

Children learn through a series of carefully structured experiences that are teacher-directed, as well as child-initiated. Children are able to work collaboratively with older children and teachers through imaginative play, along with more focused adult-lead learning, to develop essential skills and knowledge.  

Personalization for Early Years Children

Your child's learning experience is as unique as they are. We celebrate and support your child's individual needs through our personalized curriculum. Imaginative play will allow your child to take their learning in their own direction, whilst teacher-directed learning will allow them to excel in their literacy and numeracy skills. Through careful observation and assessment, learning goals are set for each child and regularly reviewed; progress is monitored and achievements celebrated.
