EARLY YEARS PROGRAM
English Language Arts
We place strong emphasis on English Language acquisition, following an educational methodology based on Jolly Phonics and starting the Guided Reading Program, both of these being child-centered approaches to teaching literacy.
Our Learning Centers also provide them with the opportunity to explore their own areas of interest at their own pace. The centers, while rotating and evolving, always take into consideration the eight multiple intelligences.
The Arts Program includes key notions from the Reggio-Emilia approach. Providing different opportunities, our children explore, play, investigate, experiment with ideas, materials and processes. Thus, developing an awareness of arts, they appreciate both creative experiences and the environment. We provide guided play and hands on experiences.
Performing Arts - Music
The Music Program starts in the first year to stimulate sensitivity and self-discipline. This learning opportunity helps children in all areas of development, such as language skills, creativity, physical maturity, and so on.
A House System is in place throughout the school to encourage and increase a good sense of competition while creating a supportive environment. Thus, each child is allocated to a House throughout his or her life at school, siblings and members of the family are also assigned to the same one as their children.
