Our Early Childhood Programme is based on a foundation of play.
Our early childhood programme caters for 3-6-year-olds in a safe, well-resourced and inspiring learning environment. We base our programme on a foundation of play. Children develop a range of skills, knowledge and understanding with the guidance of our experienced Early Childhood teachers and Teaching Assistants. We capitalise on young children’s natural desire to explore, inquire into and understand themselves and the world around them. Our EC curriculum is developed within the PYP framework and gives children the best possible foundation for later success in the elementary years.
We offer the following classes in our Early Childhood programme. For K1 and K2 students, we operate mixed-age classes, described as family classes (FC).
|Class||Age Range||Session Timing||# of classes||#of students per class|
(age 3 by 31st August)
(age 4 by 31st August)
(age 5 by 31st August)
Within our Family Classes, we roughly aim for one-third of students to be in the younger range and aim to keep the classes as balanced as possible between the two grades.
We allocate children as K1 or K2 within our family classes based on their birthday and administrative purposes. Still, they are all considered to be unique and equal members of the learning community.
Each class has a dedicated Teacher and a Teaching Assistant. In addition, our FC and K3 students have access to specialist teachers for Physical Education, Music and Movement, and Library.
