Toddler

Age in September: 18mo - 30mo

Teacher-Student Ratio 1:5

In our toddler room we encourage and motivate children to begin doing for themselves what they are able to do (i.e. putting on coats, foot wear, zippers, hanging up coats, tidying up toys). Our progamme offers respectful and concrete methods to help children and parents through separation anxiey and into socialization with others in a most respectful and encouraging environment.

Nursery

Age in September: 2.5yrs - 3.5yrs

Teacher-Student Ratio 1:8

In our nursery room we offer a warm and welcoming environment where children are encouraged to play with and establish their own relationships with friends independent of adult direction. Children are taught to “speak up” and verbalize their feelings and to “think for themselves". Teachers focus only on a child’s strengths and in doing so children are made to feel that they are capable, they count, have courage and know how to connect with others.

Preschool

Age in September: 3.5yrs - 6yrs

Teacher-Student Ratio 1:8

In our pre-school room we give children decision making powers relative to their level of experience as they learn to assume more responsibility for themselves and their feelings. Children delight in having opinions, problem solving skills and jobs within their classroom that encourage a sense of belonging, self confidence and feelings of worth as they learn to recognize the needs of others.

Kindergarten JK/SK

Age in September: 4yrs - 6yrs

Teacher-Student Ratio 1:8

In our kindergarten room children are provided opportunities to explore their potentialities, to regard all with respect and learn how to work to gain it. Our programme focuses on social and emotional growth, the foundation for intellectual learning and democratic living. Academic excellence (comprehension and retention) happens when the student experiences a feeling of belonging in an emotionally secure community setting.

Music

Kinderschool is fortunate to have an in-house music programme offering many exciting learning opportunities. Nyanna, our music teacher, uses traditional as well as original songs to introduce your child to a lifetime love of music as everyone is encouraged to sing along, dance along, play along, move, clap, listen, smile and best of all, have fun.

Yoga

When children learn yoga at an early age it encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's non-competitive. Fostering cooperation and compassion - instead of opposition - is a great gift to give our children. Physically, yoga enhances flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light (that all children have) to the surface. Our yoga instructor, Heather, teaches either Tuesday or Wednesdays every week.
