Academic Objectives

Games are the main resource used for developing socio-affective abilities and achieving academic objectives.

Through the centres of interest, games and cooperative learning activities, students develop self-help abilities that lead to gradual independence and to the acquisition of a sense of responsibility.

The daily Kindergarten activities encourage the need to respect turns and classroom rules, to share material and listen to one another. The children also learn to look after their own belongings and school property and to interact with mutual politeness and respect.

The personal, social and academic objectives are developed by means of the use of the second language. Our extensive experience has allowed us to prove the benefits of the early introduction of bilingualism.

Personal, social and academic objectives are developed within the setting of English as a second language. From the initial Kindergarten levels, we gradually achieve an excellent level of comprehension and production through total daily immersion in the language and the interaction of children with bilingual teachers that use English in a spontaneous and natural manner in routine daily activities - Circle Time, songs, games, snack-time, playground, and story-time - and involve all the learning areas (Maths, Social Studies, Science, Reading & Writing, Literature, Music, Art and Physical Education) in a spontaneous and natural way.

Our Kindergarten offers solid academic formation as well as help – through our example and our daily attitudes – for our students to understand that the kind of learning that involves their active participation is the key to success.
