At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. As the two year olds begin to exert their independence, our preschool program opens their eyes to a world of learning, sharing and exploring. We offer a balanced program which addresses the child as a whole, supporting his/her social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual growth by encouraging him/her to socialize, share, make friends, interact cooperatively, gain independence and self-control and reach her/his full potential. The program is designed to give children the opportunity to explore a wide range of developmentally appropriate activities (language, movement, science, music, etc). Our curriculum intends to make the child learn the following skills:-
Encourage children to think, reason, question and experiment. to develop eye-hand coordination, small motor skills and problem skills through play dough, block building, hook-together toys and classifying objects. Developing awareness of other children and people in their environment. Expressing creativity through art and music. Learning new vocabulary and repeating words and short sentences. Recognizing numbers and counting Introduction of word problem solving. Concept of time and calendar. Exploration of nature concepts. Expansion of the emotional side of the child by making him able to take comfort in familiar objects and expanding the mind by trying new things and gaining confidence from success. Understanding a sequence of events, and grasping spatial relationships and the concept of time. Increasing their confidence to make personal choices and share their ideas, thoughts and feelings with the group.

Dr. Ahsan-ul-Haq Rana and Dr. Jamila Rana, both the founders of the school, had done masters from Columbia University, U.S.A and were serving at key educational teaching posts at the time. They envisioned a Preschool with Dr. Maria Montessori’s Educational Methodology which would be the first step to lay a solid academic foundation for children equipping them to have an insatiable desire for learning throughout their lives. The curriculum and teaching methodology would finally lead the students of the Preschool to become confident learners and promising future building pillars of our society.
