Kindergarten

The Kindergarten program offered in the Crescent English High school, Dubai has the best practices of CBSE incorporated to prepare the children with personal, social, emotional and cognitive development along with various skills, knowledge and concepts needed for their transition and up gradation. During this   phase, the children take  their  first steps to main stream transition from home to school. The role of  kindergarten education  is to prepare children for the journey of the life- long learning. This involves the nurturing and acceptance of young children’s spontaneous, natural and varied responses to the richness of experiences and opportunities the child is likely to encounter along the long journey.

A thematic approach is adopted to foster learning across the curriculum, placing an emphasis on developing key skills. It is planned across different areas of learning, facilitating the children to develop at their own pace though differentiated and collaborative learning . Our curriculum provides opportunity for playing and exploring, active learning and thinking creatively . The children are exposed to a variety of exciting  and  positive experiences and hands on activities which enables them to explore and enliven their interest. They are encouraged to think critically, do research through their own observation and talk about them. The integration of all the learning areas provide ample opportunities for children to make connections between their experiences.

Learning Support is given to students who show significant academic gap. They support by the counsellor/ special educator and their progress is closely monitored to the parents. IEP/ILP is prepared by the counsellor/ special educator according to the targets and the same is shared with the teachers and the parents. The gifted students are given challenging activities within their classroom and encouraged to come out with creativity and their potential talents.

We believe that our curriculum is not complete without the participation and involvement of parents . They actively support the learning and development of their children along with us in various ways .  We are extremely grateful to them for being such a strong pillar of support and  cooperating with us readily .
