PLAYGROUP AND KINDERGARTEN

 

MHIS provides a supportive and nurturing environment in which children are active learners, growing in self-confidence and respecting people and the environment around them. In this welcoming atmosphere, important lifelong attitudes to school and learning are established.

In a structured setting, playgroup teachers creatively teach readiness skills in some aspects of development, which are moral and religious, language, cognitive, physical-motor, and artistic. Learning applications focus on integrated themes and sub-themes, which are delivered with a play method approach. 

In Kindergarten, students build on the readiness program began in group play and move toward the full curriculum; aspects of moral and religious development, language development, cognitive development, physical – motor development, and artistic development. Learning applications focus on integrated themes and sub-themes, which are delivered with the joy of learning, learning by doing and multiliteracy approaches. 

Learning aspects of this development are also developed through activities in 6 areas for Playgroup, namely reading and writing area, construction area; art area, role play area, gardening area, nature area; sand, water, plants, pebbles. For Kindergarten it’s 7 areas, including IT area.

At our school, we design activities which can stimulate student’s physical and mental readiness, according to their development phase. We believe in;

  • Learning through play. Children are given ample opportunities to socialize with other children and take an active part in meaningful and enjoyable learning experience
  • Child-oriented rather content-oriented programmes geared towards the child’s development needs, interest and enjoyment.  This will result in the children feeling more relaxed and able to enjoy learning experiences at own pace.
  • Providing opportunities for children to develop basic learning and social skills, good habits and to acquire basic concepts and ethnic and linguistic development.
  • Helping them develop the ability to manage their learning, emphasizing both the ‘process’ as well as the ‘product’ at this stage of their development.
