Oral blending, segmentation and recognition of high-frequency words are part of the pre-reading skills taught in FS II (KG1). In mathematics program, the centre uses a multi-sensory approach to develop the children's mathematical skills such as addition, subtraction, measuring, grouping and sequencing.

The British EYFS Curriculum

We follow the British Curriculum by delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. The EYFS framework is a child centred curriculum. It approaches early years learning as a holistic, integrated focus on children's creative expression, physical and communication skills as well as emotional and social development. Learning is carefully structured yet allows for exploratory, child-initiated experiences.  


The British Curriculum defines its provision for Pre-school education through the EYFS framework which sets and specifies standards and objectives of learning and development for pre-school children.

After-school Activities

Dance Classes

Dance is a great way to develop creativity and musicality by learning to move according to the tempo of various musical pieces. It also builds all-over muscle tone, enhances flexibility and improves core strength.  The lessons are fun and creative and structured to gradually build a child’s confidence, skills, talents, motor co-ordination, balance, strength and rhythm.
