The SMN Kindergarten program integrates the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), in order to help learners develop 21st century skills and education that will equip them for their future success. The IEYC sets knowledge, skills and understanding at the very heart of every single component. By providing “Units of Work”, in which children can explore and develop their own personal growth in a context they understand, through different subject focuses of the unit.
The students’ learning is specially designed to enable children to develop both an international perspective as well as reinforcing students’ own cultural heritage. Building on the school core values, the IEYC helps our children to develop learning skills, personal character, values, and the international-mindedness, which will be essential to deal with change throughout their lives.
The IEYC Programme
The Early Years Programme is based on clearly defined learning outcomes. That covers learning in four different strands:
Play is an essential part of children’s learning and general development. The activities undertaken by children aged 4 and 5 will help them work towards the subject, personal and international goals of the International Early Years Curriculum
The Early Childhood Development Program serves children ages 3-5. Through this interactive approach children begin to develop a variety of skills that are foundational for learning and living. Qualified teachers provide a stimulating learning environment that engages students at their individual level and growth. An atmosphere of love and care is felt as soon as you walk into the room.
Key areas of development and focus in these early stages of growth in preparation for life-long learning. are:
Each child begins their journey learning and discovering in these key areas of development. To enhance the experience, we also add innovative activities such as Dance & Movement, Rhythmic Learning, Constructive Play, and Performing Arts.
