Policies

The preschool follows Montessori curriculum, in addition to different other curriculum that aid the students and allow them to be part of different kinds of schools in the future.

Montessori:

Montessori education offers our children opportunities to develop their potential as they step out into the world as engaged, competent, responsible, and respectful citizens with an understanding and appreciation that learning is for life.

  • Each child is valued as a unique individual. Montessori education recognizes that children learn in different ways, and accommodates all learning styles. Students are also free to learn at their own pace, each advancing through the curriculum as he is ready, guided by the teacher and an individualized learning plan.
  • Beginning at an early age, Montessori students develop order, coordination, concentration, and independence. Classroom design, materials, and daily routines support the individual’s emerging “self-regulation” (ability to educate one’s self, and to think about what one is learning), toddlers through adolescents.
  • Students are part of a close, caring community. The multi-age classroom—typically spanning 3 years—re-creates a family structure. Older students enjoy stature as mentors and role models; younger children feel supported and gain confidence about the challenges ahead. Teachers model respect, loving kindness, and a belief in peaceful conflict resolution.
  • Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits. Working within parameters set by their teachers, students are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be. Montessorians understand that internal satisfaction drives the child’s curiosity and interest and results in joyous learning that is sustainable over a lifetime.
  • Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge. Teachers provide environments where students have the freedom and the tools to pursue answers to their own questions.
  • Self-correction and self-assessment are an integral part of the Montessori classroom approach. As they mature, students learn to look critically at their work, and become adept at recognizing, correcting, and learning from their errors.

Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, Montessori students become confident, enthusiastic, self-directed learners. They can think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly—a skill set for the 21st century.

British Curriculum:

Learning stars is a British curriculum which is a great introduction into English for children who are learning the language for the first time as it includes the phonics system for reading and writing. The book comes with an accompanying math book to introduce the children to numbers. The book grabs the children's' attention by covering different topics such as science, nature and so on which allows them to use the English dialog in their everyday life. Learning Stars activity and math books build a solid foundation of reading and writing which enables the child to cope and have the skills to begin primary school and British System.

Jolly phonics in addition to learning stars provides an innovative and creative way to introduce children to the letters sounds of the alphabets. It uses fun activities to show how to use the letter sound for reading and spelling. Jolly phonics give the children the extra help needed by introducing the pronunciation of letters in a multi-sensory way. 

"Let's Read" Arabic Curriculum:

It includes these three main parts:

1 - Preparation program for reading and writing "I am ready to read."

2 - Reading program "I read".

3. "Student Booklets", the practical part of the program, including 7 workbooks and 28 stories.
