Curriculum planning
The curriculum aims at achieving a well balanced development in the five major developmental areas, i.e. Physical Development, Cognitive Development, Language Development, Affective & Social Development and Aesthetic & Cultural Development. Our curriculum is composed of different Learning Themes which are related to the daily life experiences of the children. Bi-literacy and tri-lingualism, mathematics, physical fitness, science, personal development, social skills and art are integrated in the learning areas of class activities.
We will follow the "Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide" (2017) to plan curriculum. Children of nursery classes will not be asked to write, and there will not be mechanical copying exercises and drills on calculation.

The learning progress of the students is assessed through the observation of the performance of individual students during their daily learning activities by the teachers.

All the reports and supporting materials will be filed in the "Student Portfolio" of each student.
