Early Childhood Program consists of three stages: Nursery, Kindergarten 1, and Kindergarten 2. These stages are taught using “learning while playing” approach to enhance students’ interest in exploring and discovering new things useful to their future education. This level emphasizes character building and basic ability development.
The goal of this program is to provide safe and nurturing environment where children develop in a home-like setting as they play and learn. In this stage, they are encouraged to develop self-care skills and self-responsibility. Opportunities and responsibilities are provided to develop their physical skills as well as stimulate their critical thinking ability.
