KG 2

Kindergarten means the garden of children “CHILD’S GARDEN”. The age of our children mainly range between 3 and 6 years. Kindergarten is to teach/pass information through age appropriate activities that encourage children to want to learn more. Our curriculum, mythology and techniques are mainly based on the American System of Schooling, which we find most befitting for the culture and diversity of our students.
Our teaching methods use different instructional designs to help children learn at their own pace while in social and collaborative environment (empathizes on the importance of team work).
At this level we are well aware of the children social, emotional, as well as development needs. Consequently we believe building up personality and character is a priority and vital at this age.
Teaching children how to listen is a core in our kindergarten program in conjunction with the language acquisition (phonetic awareness and reading).
