The main objective for the Kindergarten years is to help our young children develop their affective, cognitive and motor skills. We actively encourage the development of students’ curiosity and imagination by exposing them to an exciting and wonderful world of learning and laying the foundation for life-long learning.
During these early years, the curriculum emphasises on study with letters, numbers, colour and music, which makes learning a pleasant experience for beginners. The curriculum is designed to build the child’s intellectual, physical, moral, social and emotional growth. In Kindergarten I, the emphasis is on the development of listening and speaking skills. Reading and writing skills gain focus in Kindergarten 2. We create a secure, happy, caring and stimulating environment where children are encouraged to reach their full potential.
