Nursery, Preschool, Pre-K & Kindergarten: Age 2 -5
A child’s first school experience is very important in laying the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our Early Years Program at ISSP is a happy and exciting experience for your child that will build a positive attitude toward learning. Within the context of concept based learning, we’ll provide a wealth of experiences in a safe and relaxed environment, led by a team of highly experienced teachers who specialize in Early Childhood education.
Our teachers facilitate opportunities for hands-on learning and exploration. They create specialized learning environments that allow the children to explore a new activity everyday whether that is with blocks or in the role play corner. This exploration helps children to develop their fine and gross motor skills and improve social interaction. Children also engage in hands-on activities in math to explore mathematical relationships, to learn to explore and identify patterns and to solve problems.
All activities are designed to enable students to become inquisitive, communicative and confident young learners. We develop our student’s confidence in communicating ideas to others through developmentally appropriate activities in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Our program includes math, science, social studies, language and culture, art, music, physical education, library skills and technology.
Learning Through Play
Through years of experience, we know that play is a powerful tool for learning. Experiences with sand, water, building blocks, dramatic play, table toys, art materials, music, outdoor play, games and computers are integral to a child’s development. Play activities encourage exploration and experimentation, spark curiosity and imagination and build children’s abilities to solve problems. In addition, play also provides children with opportunities to experiment with language and work cooperatively with others.
