Our programs


GENERAL

The Bilingual programs has been tailored by specialist in early childhood education.

Our staff is qualified in Safety Oriented First Aid and are dedicated to fostering academic excellence through an enriched curriculum. We strive to instil in our children a natural curiosity and life long commitment to learning.


Our goal is the development of critical and creative thinking, and the ability to communicate ideas.

Priority is given to maturation respecting the natural rhythm of the developing child- ”The child will learn” instead of ”The child is informed” which is to say the child is given support and allowed to learn through experience. We would like to become an extension of the child’s family life by offering a secure and stimulating environment, while at the same time keeping an open line of communication with our parents.

BABY ROOM

The infant room, provides for our little ones, a stimulating and loving environment in which the children can grow at their own pace. We strive to instill a sense of confidence and accomplishment by providing the opportunity for them to explore thier environment, through songs, strories, gross motor and fine motor activities as well as helping our little ones develop appropriate social and interpersonal skills, preparing them for their next stages of development.

PRE-K

During this stage of development the child becomes more and more social in their orientation. They begins to show interest in their peers. and parallel play gives way to shared play This process is facilitated ask the child’s growing mastery of motor and language skills, which enlarge the possibilities for play The classroom is structured in such a that it may cultivate these behaviors as well as to provide angle opportunities for the children to involve themselves in fantasy imagination and role-playing.

TODDLER ROOM

Our focus in the toddler room is on the autonomy of the child who is asserting their independence. Apart from the educational and social values, emphasis is also placed on toilet training, speech development and the acceptance of direction from someone other than a parent. The latter is accomplished by providing them with a flexible routine with reasonable boundaries to allow for their fluctuating needs.

KINDERGARTEN

Given the maturity level of the child we are able to take learning to its maximum potential. The program is aimed at developing pre- reading. pre- writing and pre- math skills. Stimulating the child’s natural curiosity and providing opportunity for choice will prepare the child and instill in them a natural love of learning.
