Pre Nursery Program

Pre Nursery Program provides children aged 2-3 with hands-on learning opportunities that are active, self-paced, and based on real-world experience. Learning goals focus on developing independence, social skills, confidence, and a solid academic base in preparation for future learning.

The Program is active, self-paced, and involves learning using all five senses. Children are introduced to the five areas of the Curriculum, including: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Culture, and develop competence through repetition and practice.

Between the ages of two and three, toddlers move through sensitive periods for language, order, small objects, toilet training, music, grace and courtesy, and the senses. The design of the toddler classroom, and the educational materials within in, reflect these interests and provide rich opportunities for learning that nurture children’s complete development.

Similarly, the daily routine reflects this age groups need to learn through movement and hands-on experience, while embracing children’s individual needs, interests, and learning style.
