Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.

Kindergarten Programme

During the Kindergarten years, emphasis is laid on developing the gross and fine motor skills, problem solving abilities and laying the foundation for literacy and numeracy. The child learns ideas and concepts that revolve around environmental science and also develops skills of arts, craft and music. The child enters into KG II after completion of KG I and continues on a more intensive journey of exploring and learning the 3 R’s – Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. All of the above are facilitated with the help of various innovative hands-on activities and first hand experiences.

The learning activities are structured around a holistic curriculum. The child is guided through her learning by well-trained educators using hands-on activities to maximize learning outcomes. Every child’s learning ability is supported and met through differentiated activities. The curriculum is delivered through a combination of whole group instruction, small group activities and individual work.

The kindergarten classrooms provide a stimulating learning environment for the child through colourful and immaculately created anchor charts and learning aids to support visual learning.

Assessment is through a system of ‘Continuous Informal Evaluation’ which is built into the daily lesson plans. The CIE is based on the children’s class work, theme-based worksheets, children’s participation in and their performance of hands-on activities, as well as the observation by the teachers.

The following curricular areas are integrated to provide a wholesome learning experience:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Environmental Science
  • Music, Arts, Craft and others
