Departments and Subjects
The Foundation Stage for Kindergarten children aged 3 to 5 is child-centred and oriented towards practical applications, social development and acquiring the skills, knowledge and understanding required to interact in a changing world. Encouragement and support are provided for children to achieve their full potential in a caring and stimulating environment in which the learning process is positive and meaningful.
Learning through structured play and regular educational visits are an integral part of the Foundation Stage. Arabic as prescribed by the Ministry of Education is also taught.
Classes are well served by individual class libraries, a well-resourced school library, computer laboratories, a music studio and a dedicated Kindergarten play area.
