In the Lower School, we are about addressing “the whys.” At this age, children are naturally inquisitive. At The Presidency International School we look to expand upon their curiosity by engaging in theme-based units, which are integrated throughout multiple disciplines such as Mathematics, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Arts, Library and Foreign Languages. In the school, we put children at the center of their education and are very mindful of where they are and the personal goals that we have for them. We are looking to help each child to be the best that they can be. We believe that by building our programs around students, learning can be long-lasting, meaningful and fun. Our Pre-School programs are emotionally nurturing, intellectually rigorous and unique.
OUR EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
We believe the road to become a lifelong learner starts early. Learning is active and therefore our teaching must be interactive. When children feel nurtured, happy and supported, they are able to explore and embrace challenges. Our Maple Bear program guides them toward becoming confident learners. We support our learners by affording them the time and opportunity to explore and learn at their own pace. Our classrooms are centers for cooperative learning, literature circles, collaborative problem-solving and share sessions. Conversations dig deep, scaffolding children to an area of critical thinking that creates lasting learning.
OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS
All children can benefit from the Lower School program. Children who are most successful at the school are curious about the world and why things work, are independent and internally motivated, understand the importance of reading, enjoy collaborative effort, and wake up in the morning anxious to ask the next “Why?”
