LANGUAGE & LITERACY
The early years are critical for literacy development. From singing and story time telling in younger classrooms, to phonics and eventually reading and writing in our older ones, your child will develop important literacy skills and a love for reading. Through our literacy program, we focus on sound recognition, reading, listening and comprehension skills in a fun and interactive way.
Early experiences with math help children develop reasoning skills, inventiveness and persistence in problem solving. Our math program introduces number & value recognition, addition & subtraction, measurement, shapes, and patterns through hands-on learning.
Children are natural scientists. They use their senses and special technological tools to observe and investigate their world, recording and analyzing their findings through writing, drawing or taking photos. Our science program allows students to investigate the world around them and to understand concepts through different learning techniques that will help them to make real life connections.
STEAM Education is an approach to teaching and learning that combines Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math to guide student inquiry, discussion, and problem-solving. STEAM education develops children’s critical thinking skills, as it requires gathering and using evidence to create knowledge or solve problems.
Our social studies domain, integrated in our English program, helps children understand themselves and
their relationships with family and friends. They learn how they are alike or different from their friends and how, as individuals, they can contribute to society.
ARABIC & RELIGION
Our Arabic and religion programs provide fun and interactive activities for students to learn their native language.
MUSIC & ART
Our art and music programs support our curriculum and the topics covered each month. Students sing and draw about the theme of the month in order to have more in-depth knowledge of the information that they are learning about.
Learning a second language supports children’s language development and helps them learn about other cultures. Our French program introduces our students to simple vocabulary, phrases, conversations and songs.
Our Character Building program develops our students’ confidence, values and ethics in order to become positive and productive members of the society.
Active children become active adults. We show your child fun ways to practice proper techniques for movement, balance and motor skills with plenty of time to slide, climb and run on our age-appropriate playgrounds and gym. Our P.E. program helps to build healthy bodies, healthy habits and boost self-confidence.
