welcome to our world
Why Choose Us?
1. KidS Pedagogy and Methodology
To further strengthen the 5 pillars of expression model, students work on the development of a project that integrates knowledge and that emerges from the interests of our children, bringing them closer to the inquiry, the development of critical thinking and the creative expression of ideas.
2. KIDS Readiness Approach
At KidS we strengthen the skills of our children to successfully face situations in today’s world, preparing them for a positive transition to school. We seek the development of skills and basic tools to start the school process that include critical thinking, problem solving, follow-up instructions, teamwork, motivation, attention and social and emotional skills.
3. Support of English Language Development (K4KidS & English Lab)
The Kids teaching methodology supports learners with English language acquisition through different models. For students under 4 years, they receive native language instruction with English exposure in the English Lab program, to facilitate an acquisition of a second language children must be exposed to it before the age of 6, This is the reason why, while we are developing e the mother tongue, our children are also exposed to English through art, play and social interaction.
Older students have the opportunity to learn English as a second language, via full English immersion (k4 KidS program) or through a dual-track approach where instruction is given to learners both in local language and in English.
4. Assessment and Reporting
As part of the process of adapting to the preschool and aiming to get to know each of our children better, we make an assessment of their skills, development, individual styles, interests and needs, in order to adjust our daily plans and reach the potential of each one of them. This information is presented to the parents periodically and is accompanied by an individual portfolio that helps us understand the progress of each child, strengthening our pedagogical model.
5. Reinforcement of Parenting Skills
Parents are an essential part of the development of the students. Parenting workshops and structured newsletters provide parents with support and the appropriate tools to help enrich their child’s development. Parenting sessions become a valuable support network for families.
