Programme Focus

Our Pre-K/Nursery Curriculum is designed to provide your child with play-based learning, exposing them to diverse activities to foster positive self-concepts.

Mobilising the Language in all its Dimensions

Children learn to communicate and express themselves using oral language. With the opportunity to speak and explain their experiences, they can acquire complex grammar rules and expand their vocabulary.

Becoming a Student

When children learn to recognise themselves as a person, play with others in a group and respect the rules of a group environment, they start to see how they contribute to the setting. Learning their role and place in the school community eases the transition from a child to becoming a student.

Discovering the  World

Children learn to use spatial and temporal benchmarks to discover and understand the world around them. With asking questions, hearing different points of view, manipulating numbers, and classifying different shapes and objects, they learn to think logically and distinguish living from non-living things.

Moving and Expressing Themselves

Through free or guided physical education and sports activities, children learn to express themselves through their bodies. They learn to follow rules in games, and to express themselves artistically through dance activities as well. They learn to move, balance, jump, run, manipulate objects and to catch.

Observing, Feeling, Imagining and Creating

We awaken children’s artistic sensibility. Through drawing, painting and craftwork, children learn to express themselves artistically. Through singing, using one’s voice, and listening, we increase sensory awareness.
