Programs

Early Education Program

By the time a child reaches five years old, 90% of their brain has already developed - which means the progression from birth to school is the most important time of their lives. Apart from providing an easy transition to primary schools, pre-schools aid in the overall growth and development of the child. Preschool education helps in a child's emotional, social and personal growth and development. Although a child learns how to talk while at home, in preschool continuous interaction and exposure with children of same age group and teachers helps them to enhance their communication skills. This involves translation of mental images to languages so that thoughts and knowledge be transformed into information. On the whole, the skills and knowledge that the child develops in the Pre School have a great impact on the aptitude and attitude of the child later in life.
