Our preschool frames each child through an enriching program with the aim to acquire and foster a child’s developing skills. We offer a stimulating and safe-learning environment that will enable a child to cultivate, explore, create and learn.
We provide an integrated curriculum based on the Common Core Standards. It is designed to help them develop a range of social and learning-related skills, in order to prepare them for primary education.

Our preschool program also includes Montessori education. It is an instructive approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in Italy. Our Montessori environment is designed to take full advantage of the children’s desire to learn, and their unique ability to develop their own capabilities.
Assessment in preschool provides educators and parents / caregivers with information about a child’s development and growth.
- It provides a record of growth in all developmental areas: cognitive, physical/motor, language, social-emotional, and approaches to learning.
- It identifies children who may need additional support.
- It identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the child.
Observations: Educators observe all areas of development, including intellectual, linguistic, social-emotional, and physical development, on a regular basis.
Portfolios: This is a record of data (worksheets, written activities, etc.) that is collected through the work children have produced over a period of time. The collection clearly shows the progress of a child’s development.
