Knowledge Gate International School Kindergarten understands the importance of fully engaging children in the fun adventure of learning.

The brand new purpose-built Kindergarten building has excellent equipment and facilities, as well as plenty of space for young minds to play and explore. We nurture curiosity and encourage their imagination to ensure that a real enthusiasm and enjoyment for learning is developed during these initial and crucial years of formal education.

Teacher directed and self-selected play and exploration form the basis of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum, which is part of the National Curriculum for England, and designed for children to develop inquisitive minds from the very beginning. All seven areas of the EYFS Framework are addressed in the teaching model to ensure optimum learning is achieved.

At Knowledge Gate International School, we focus on certain Prime areas known for igniting a child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for knowledge. Areas that will build their capacity to learn and form healthy relationships in order to thrive. The crucial Prime areas are:

● Personal, Social and Emotional Development
● Communication and Language
● Physical Development

In order for the Prime areas to be strengthened and effectively applied, there are four Specific areas that need to be highlighted:

● Literacy
Reading is taught through traditional phonics. All children are encouraged to develop the habit of reading for pleasure, and are able to take home story books from our well-stocked Library.

● Mathematics
Teachers combine the traditional with modern technology by using iPads to help students grasp the basics of Mathematics and numeracy.

● Understanding of the World
Young minds are curious about the world we live in and we guide them to navigate the world in a way that is fun, inclusive and tolerant.

● Expressive Arts and Design
Specialist teachers and access to high-quality facilities enhance the delivery of our Kindergarten Curriculum through the delivery of Music, PE and Drama.

Teaching Assistants are allocated to every class to make sure each child receives plenty of individual attention. Swift intervention via small groups or individual support means no child falls behind and that extra help is readily available when needed.
