Senior KG

Senior KG program seeks to partner with the parents in nurturing students as they learn about themselves, their family, friends, and community in which they live. The units of study are integrated with hands-on activities in the centers. During the first part of the year, the program is focused on developing a love for creation and learning how to live in community with other children in the classroom.

At this level, First Preschool, Bright Kids children further refine and tune all the skills learned in the earlier years. Here the child becomes a better reader, can write meaningful sentences, inquires and discovers one’s surrounding independently. This process of learning makes the child’s transition from Kindergarten to primary-formal school smooth and achievable.

Playtime is twice a day and physical education occurs every day. The day also includes stories, games, finger plays, songs and drama. These activities prepare the students as they develop literacy and numeracy skills. Instruction is provided that introduces the child to the world of written language and numbers. Field trips are planned to expand the horizons of the child, encouraging curiosity and exploration of world. The curriculum opens new experiences and develops communication skills and the child becomes aware of personal gifts and abilities.
