Our Areas of Focus
The first five years of a child plays an important role in shaping his/her life, be it at school, in the family and in community in general.
Our early years program is designed to provide the foundation for future academic, social and emotional well-being of every child.
The areas of learning are:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
We keep the learning play-based especially in the early years of childhood. Children acquire their first lessons of numeracy and literacy through active, playful activities. By the end of the early years, most children acquire basic reading and number skills.
Children learn by absorbing information through daily interactions and experiences with family members, other kids, and the world.
Reading books, singing, playing word games increases their vocabulary while providing increased opportunities to develop listening skills.
Motor skills development is important throughout a child’s early life, because physical development is related to other development areas.
For example, if a child is able to crawl or walk (gross motor skills), s/he can more easily explore their physical environment, which affects cognitive development. This means that children in the early years learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking, which takes place both indoors and outside.
