Kindergarten Programme - Classes Nursery To Prep

 

The Kindergarten curriculum implants in children the qualities of inquisitiveness, exploration, and learning in a fun-filled, safe and happy learning atmosphere. An individualized procedure helps nourish a love of learning; promote social skills and instill moral values. The importance is on growing students-self confidence and the knowledge to effectively communicate in English and their mother tongue. Teachers assure this through active use of language and by stimulating children to manifest themselves unobstructedly.

A steady curriculum and theme-based instruction assist young minds to integrate their learning placidly. The accent is on searching, knowing, understanding and developing their thoughts. The sources of learning applied in Kindergarten incorporate Holistic Development and Learning and Learning through Play. The curriculum develops children for a smooth change to a more regular Primary curriculum.

The Kindergarten Programme advances the use of a variety of individual and group activities that produce a lively and positive learning atmosphere. Games, songs, creative projects, and many more interesting activities develop children's foundational skills in education and numeracy. They are inspired to play, explore and learn through dance, music, art, and craft. Singing, rhyming and reciting are applied in the Language Arts and the Phonics Programme. The use of manipulatives, images, and symbols help them recognize relationships between sets and groups of things to be sorted, counted, shared and represented. Sports and interactions with sports teachers assist in increasing coordination and motor skills and inject enthusiasm for sports. Picnics and field trips improve students' understanding of their environment. The celebration of festivals excites them to many traditions and cultures.

Examination and Assessment

There is no formal assessment for pre-primary students. The student’s performance and development are assessed using formative devices which are simple and ungraded. This style of assessment supports the teacher to guide the student and help parents to know the child’s performance.

  1. Recognizing and Studying children’s behaviors as they spend a period in class.
  2. Examining and evaluating the child’s improvement concerning established goals.
  3. Maintain related documents which record the child’s performance to aid the student in a weak area.
