Learning Approach

By working independently, as well as in groups, the children begin to develop a sense of oneself, as well as a sense of belonging to a community. They also get better at understanding their feelings by engaging in conversations about empathy, respect and care. Our reflective learning process, guided by our skilled educators, lays the foundation for character development in children.

The children's interests inspire play-based learning experiences. Through uninterrupted moments of exploration, children extend their understanding of the world and will develop thinking skills.

The Pre-Kindergarten learning spaces encourage each learner to develop physical skills in a safe and nurturing environment.

A Day in Pre-Kindergarten

Learning happens in a variety of different ways throughout the day. Our timetables offer a great amount of flexibility that allow us to connect with and build upon children’s needs and interests.
