FAQ

A. We strive to help our learners develop as well educated, knowledgeable, curious and dynamic people with high communication and adapting skills, who are able to succeed in international environments.
A. Five times a week is ideal. It is important for children to have consistency, in order to develop secure relationships that will impact their ability to learn.
A. There are parent participation days available at each of our schools which include classroom observation.
A. Termly reports are given to parents. These inform parents about their child’s progress in social, emotional, physical, and academic areas, and discuss appropriate goals and strategies moving forward. Not only that, but teachers regularly communicate with parents through an app informing parents on regular goings on in the classroom.
A. In the foundation years, infant & toddler classes we utilize Early Years Foundation Stage from UK (EYFS). From the Preschool to end of the Primary. we follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB, PYP).
A. Yes, sometimes. Our language policy supports multilingualism. Our primary language of instruction and communication is English. Yet because we want students to enjoy all languages, and for cases of safety, we make sure all students can communicate their needs and feel understood. This means that where safety is concerned, teachers will sometimes communicate in multiple languages to make sure every child knows and understands key concepts. In recent years, research has shown that when multilingualism is supported, students do much better academically and with all their languages. English however, remains the primary method of communication in our classrooms to promote it as an academic language.
A.New students can join our school at any time throughout the year. Teachers consider each student’s levels and adapt lesson content accordingly.
A.We recommend you continue to communicate in whatever language you consider your mother tongue. Your child’s development as a person includes culture and heritage to help them form a secure identity. If you do not speak English at home, that is ok. We hope all our children develop to be multilingual learners. The best support you can give at home is to help them feel secure and loved. This will give them courage to try new things and ask good questions.
A.That’s no problem at all. All our teachers are very experienced and will support new students getting used to their new environment. However, we may recommend a transition schedule to allow your child to get used to school in a way that they feel safe. Infant and Toddler classes have a mandatory period of adjustment that is modified for each child individually as needed.
A.Please be assured that our experienced teachers design classes in order for all students to enjoy classes throughout the lessons.
A.It is best for children to learn new languages from an early age. Young children are capable of learning multiple languages at the same time.
A.No. Teachers plan extensively to introduce key concepts and skills through hands on activities that connect to your child’s understanding of the world. In early years we are primarily concerned with social emotional development, ability to communicate & work with others, and with giving them life skills that will serve them to advance academically and socially in Primary school. These foundations, if built strongly, will ensure your child’s success.
