Children aged 3 to 5 will be registered in kindergarten.
The curriculum is divided into five learning areas:
- using language in all its aspects
- action, expression and comprehension through physical activity
- action, expression and comprehension through artistic activities
- developing skills to structure thoughts
- exploring the world
Each of these five areas is essential for child development and will be focused on during the school day.
Language is placed at the head of the list as it is essential for their development. Engaging in physical and artistic activities develops your child’s motor skills, imagination, feelings, ideas and emotional and language skills.
The areas “creating tools to structure thoughts” and “exploring the world” aim at developing your child’s understanding of numbers and mathematical operations, observing the world around them and developing their curiosity. The need for young children to explore, discover, handle, experiment, play and communicate is stimulated so they can progressively master these skills and expand their horizons. By using the fundamentals they learned at home, kindergarten uses a programme that allows children to understand the world that surrounds them.
