Pre-School Programs (3-4 year olds)
Pre-K program for 3&4 year old children
AISV offers a a half day (8.30-12.30) or a full day (8.30-3.30) pre-school program for three- and four-year-olds.
The AISV pre-school is working with the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) to strengthen and harmonize early childhood education standards. The IPC is a professional association that promotes active learning and effective practices in teaching. This academic year, the pre-school will be implementing the curriculum and undergoing professional development training in order to achieve accreditation from the IPC.
Headquartered in the United States, the IPC‘s objective and research based curriculum meets the standards set by state departments and accreditation organizations. The IPC enjoys global recognition and works closely with governments to amend curricula materials if required to ensure local standard compliance. With the assistance of an advisory committee which consists of peers, consultants and academics, the IPC ensures the rigor and high quality of its curriculum.
At AISV we believe that young children develop at different rates and in many areas: gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, self-help, personal, social, and language. The curriculum integrates skills from all areas and focuses on the "whole child”. Children are guided and challenged to learn and grow through play, art, music, stories, drama, cooking and outdoor experiences and exploring their environment. Assessment of skills and development occur through the year. We provide a warm, caring and supportive environment for every child.
