Kinder College Aims – Preschool
From 5 to 6 years old
The aim of our preschool is to prepare the children for elementary school, gradually immersing them into the English language and school didactics. Passing from nursery school, where learning is more playful, to a situation where greater concentration and discipline is required is not easy. Thanks to the Preschool we provide children with linguistic and attitudinal skills to face this passage serenely.
THE PROGRAMME in brief – 80% in English
During the Preschool year teachers address the children mostly in English. They start with simple words that are useful to greet somebody and to introduce themselves, and then they introduce the first verbs ( look, listen, touch, make a circle, etc.), questions ( How many? What colour? Who? ) and simple sentences ( I can see, show me something).
Keeping the formula of making it playful, children learn to manage a simple daily routine and get used to being in class together. English is introduced with group games, drawing, manual activities, songs and stories. Children learn to carry out simple instructions, to get to know the numbers, to have their first mathematical skills, to take care of their notebooks and their first school material.
