Curriculum

CURRICULUM OBJECTIVES

The principles of our curriculum are drawn from good and effective practice in Early Years settings. Children develop rapidly during the Early Years- physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. We ensure that all children feel included, secure and valued. Early Years’ experience should build on what children already know and can do; and this is exactly what we follow at Ambassador Kindergarten. To be effective, our curriculum is carefully structured with the following areas:Curriculum

Communication and language development-Involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Physical development-Involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their coordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) - Involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behavior in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

Literacy development - Involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write, through a free access to a wide range of reading materials (Picture books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

Mathematics-Involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating, simple addition and subtraction problems; to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

Understanding the world -Involves guiding children to know their physical world and their community through different opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

Expressive arts and design- Involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, design and technology.

OUR APPROACH TO EDUCATION

At Ambassador Kindergarten, learning is facilitated through the following approach.

  • The areas of learning and development must shape educational programs in kindergarten settings. All areas are important and interconnected.
  • The child learns holistically, that is at all times and at all places.IMG_0124
  • Children are unique and are competent learners. They develop in individual ways, at varying rates. All children should be given every opportunity to achieve their full potential.
  • Children’s Creative Expression is expanded through a range of media such as art, multi-dimensional creations, music and dance.
  • Children learn to be strong and independent from secure relationships. All adults in the setting should develop good relationships with all children, interacting positively with them and taking time to listen to them.
  • The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending the children’s development. Activities and resources, both inside the classroom and outside, enable the children to develop in all the areas of learning.
  • A thematic approach to teaching involves integrating all subject areas together under one theme. It crosses over subject lines and helps children relate basic academic skills to real-world ideas. These themed units incorporate reading, Math and Science as well as the Arts for a well-balanced curriculum.
  • Play-way method is also followed which develops the basic learning skills.
