(Play Group, Nursery, LKG & UKG)
Pre-Primary curriculum comprises of the Playgroup, Nursery, Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten. The Pre-Primary curriculum guides the learning and teaching process, and helps us to establish an optimum learning environment in our classes. We believe that to engage, achieve and make positive contributions students must be healthy, secure and safe. We value all of these needs and understand their contribution to the development of happy students in an enjoyable, encouraging and stimulating atmosphere. The learning environment combines high standards with a broad and rich curriculum.
We use a variety of play-based and structured activities striking a fine balance between both teacher-led and student-initiated play. Play underpins all development and learning for young children. Most children play spontaneously and it is through play that they develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally. To support these areas, other aspects of learning are scheduled into the day. One session each for Games, Physical Education and Dance is scheduled for Physical Development.
The progress of each student is monitored through observations, work sheets, work samples and shared with parents through in-depth assessment reports in parents meeting.
The school curriculum develops enjoyment and commitment to learning. It builds on students’ strengths, interests and experiences and develops their confidence to learn and work independently and collaboratively. The curriculum equips the students with the essential learning skills of literacy, numeracy, information and communication technology, and promotes an enquiring mind with a capacity to think rationally. It also develops the students’ physical skills and encourages them to recognise the importance of healthy living and keeping themselves safe. This stage prepares students for the next steps in their education and empowers them to make informed choices. It further aims to develop their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of their own and different beliefs and cultures, and how these influence individuals.
