ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Our Early Childhood Division is home to children aged 3 (Kindergarten-Preparatory) to 4 years old (Kindergarten- Preparatory Advanced). Our classroom sizes are limited to maintain optimun student to teacher ratio and there is a full- time assistant in each classroom to support the students and the teacher.
M’KIS provides a developmentally appropriate educational program for our Early Childhood Programs and follows the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP*). Early learning in the PYP is a holistic learning experience that integrates socio-emotional, physical and cognitive development. In the PYP classroom,
it takes place in dynamic environments that promote play, discovery and exploration. At all levels, we stress skills of independence and autonomy, encouraging the student to develop self-control, pride in accomplishments and enjoyment of learning. We recognize all students are unique with varying skills levels, learning styles, and special talents, which develop at varying paces. Differentiation of instructional strategies according to the needs of the students begins in our Early Childhood Division and continues throughout all grade levels at M’KIS.
