Children start KG 1 in September after completing 3 years of age. Kindergarten stage is a two-year program.
Kindergarten Curriculum follows the US Common Core State Standards and Core Knowledge Sequence. The incentive behind Core Knowledge is simple and powerful learning. The Sciences are also aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Arabic is taught to native and non-native speakers along with Islamic Studies for Muslim students as per the Ministry of Education (MoE) standards and curriculum. An integrated approach to the curriculum ensures that science and social studies, linked to other curriculum subjects, are taught through units of work studied over several weeks. This is in addition to the direct teaching of English language, Arts and Mathematics. Key skills are taught through a variety of topics that can then be transferred and used in wider learning environments.
