Why the Pre-school years are the most vital years of an individuals life
Pre-school forms the vital part of a child’s early education, laying the foundations and introducing them to the world around them. Learning at pre-school has always been fun and always will be. Play based curriculums have always been promoted because of the way it educates and helps children learn, in the most interactive way possible viz. Play. Learning through play has been one of the main foundations of the Reggio Emilia Approach. This approach to learning always puts the child first and places them in a learning environment encouraging them to learn via exploration and discovery; making the process fun and engaging.
Different philosophies and methods of learning help children grow and imbibe the right values; helping them become more responsible individuals later in life. International pre-schools in Dubai have always been providing the right guidance, helping children build strong foundations for thinking, language, vision, attitudes and aptitudes. The pre-school age is one of the vital periods of a child’s growth where a child’s mind simply acts like a sponge; absorbing and giving them a character which later shines through his/her personality when they grow up to be teenagers and finally as adults.
Research has proved again that if children are place in an enriched and stimulating environment they automatically turn out to be smarter and more inquisitive. A pre-school provides such an environment allowing children to learn via sight, sound, taste, touch, smell and doing; an environment only a good nursery can provide.
The Kensington provides a stimulating and enriched environment at their nursery in the Dubai Silicon Oasis and also in their nursery at Umm Sequim. They have created speciality areas for children to enjoy special activities like their Interactive technology Centre, Majlis Language room, Art-Attack room, Music Room, Imagination Zone and Soft Play Area. The outdoor 'classroom' plays an important part in the learning experience. The garden areas have been planned for with activity, aesthetics and safety in mind complemented with an abundance of child-friendly plants and shrubs. The British Early Years Foundation Stage also helps focus on the six primary focus areas:
• Social and emotional development
• Communication, language and literacy
• Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
• Knowledge and understanding of the world around them
• Physical development
