Curriculum / Programme

Reggio Emilia-Inspired Early Learning approach

Kindergarten Curriculum

The Reggio Emilia-Inspired Early Learning approach is an innovative framework for early childhood education. Each child is valued as strong, capable and resilient, with an innate ability for endless wonder fuelled by a desire for knowledge. Young children possess deep curiosity and unlimited potential to thrive as they begin to explore their expanding world and understand their place within it. 
The unique Reggio Emilia-Inspired methodology delivered in our Kindergarten division focuses on learning through social inclusion and group work and achieves remarkable outcomes in Early Years education. 

Each child is an equal participant in the Kindergarten environment. As they develop increasing confidence in their education, they understand the value of their contribution and continue to gain feedback through questioning. Communication is a dynamic process and a multi-faceted way of discovering their increasing skills through interaction with their peers as they learn through play.

Kindergarten Environment and Facilities

An engaging & stimulating environment

Kindergarten Environment and Facilities

Early Years educators augment learners’ natural curiosity by fostering an enabling environment (the so-called “third teacher”), providing stimulating provocations and ensuring rigour in the learning process. 

Well-equipped Kindergarten facilities, inside and outside the classroom, offer exciting opportunities to transfer skills and knowledge in several different settings with the attentive support of attentive specialist Early Years educators.

Reggio Emilia-Inspired Approach

Immersion in languages

Communication Skills

A well-known aspect of the Reggio Emilia-Inspired Approach is the 'One Hundred Languages of Children' - the belief that young children show their understanding and express their thoughts and creativity in numerous ways. Adept at fulfilling this cohort's needs, Kindergarten teachers encourage effective, positive communication and equip young linguists with healthy methods of expression.
