Early experiences in the first few years of life are critical for acquisition of skills as maximum brain development happens during this period. The objective of the program is to train parents to help them foster their child’s development by learning and practising child development through a scientific approach. This program will foster social, aesthetic and motor skills in young children. This program helps infants and toddlers develop their latent language and maths skills.
Quality education in the early years of preschool sets a firm foundation in the overall development of a child. At Iris Kids, the nursery curriculum provides a right array of activities to help children move towards achieving their early learning goals. In Nursery, children are engaged in school readiness activities such as reading, writing, counting, number recognition and problem solving in a fun filled but purposeful manner. Children are encouraged to corroborate their learning through collaborative activities in the areas of dramatics, science and arts.
In addition to age-appropriate activities in Kindergarten, which prepare a child for success in formal school; various other activities are conducted in the areas of language, numbers, general knowledge, music, art in a planned manner throughout the program. Through these activities, children learn the alphabet and letter sounds, numbers and simple math and master early writing skills.
Our teachers draw upon a variety of proven approaches to foster community, individuality and creativity. Supported by a collaborative and enthusiastic community of peers, parents and teachers, our children construct meaning through exploration, experimentation and reflection. We are committed to tapping each child’s natural capacity and curiosity while developing awareness and respect for each other, their teachers and their community as a whole.
Our curriculum is integrated, sequential and balanced. Our emergent approach to curriculum allows us to build on the ideas and interests of the children in each class. Each classroom is a unique reflection of the collaboration between students and teachers. Additionally, we introduce new concepts and skills to ensure that the children are exposed to a range of learning opportunities to further support their growth and development.
Iris Kids Preschool teachers work with each child to help them feel supported in their learning styles, safe in their environment, and nurtured in their uniqueness. Teachers support the individual child’s strengths and abilities. Iris Kids Preschool welcomes our families to be partners in learning. Parents are involved in all school functions, classroom celebrations, parent-teacher conferences, and all Parent Association-sponsored events. The fulfillment of our school’s mission is complete with the involvement and participation of all of our parents, building a strong school community.
