Each age group is offered an appropriate curriculum that includes language development, creative expression, scientific exploration, quantitative reasoning, music, creative movement and physical development.
Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through play. Play is the serious work of young children. That is how they learn to understand the world.
To carry out this philosophy, all our classrooms are divided into learning centers. Each day, children are given opportunities to self-select their activities in order to develop a sense of independence as learners and thinkers.
Our curriculum is designed to meet individual needs and interests so that each child can work to his or her full potential. Therefore, the materials provided are open-ended so that each and every child can gain a sense of success each and every time.
The Creche and Toddler programs stress socialization skills. A gradual separation with parents or caretakers takes place as the children gain independence in the activities of daily living. Active exploration of the classrooms and materials form the core of the program.
In the Nursery programs for three and four year olds, the curriculum is designed to meet individual needs and interests so that each child can work to his or her full potential. Children are provided with a solid academic foundation through hands-on play experiences. Exposing children to open ended pre-math and pre-reading concepts leads them towards a lifelong love and excitement about learning and gives them the confidence to move to the next stage of cognitive development when they’re ready.
In the Kindergarten, children participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate individual and group activities that expand their knowledge and understanding of the world as well as their self confidence.
Sharing celebrations with families is very important at The International Preschools. We celebrate United Nations Day, Winter Solstice and Family Night.
The International Preschools is actively involved in helping parents through the on-going school process. IPS families leave IPS to go on to both public and private schools.
