At BEIS, the first three years at school are very important in a child’s life. Early impressions affect the way in which children react to people, new experiences, and to life in general.
BEIS Kindergarten programs are child-centred and devoted to meeting each child’s unique prerequisite. BEIS provides a safe and nurturing environment in which to foster each child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and motor development. Children learn best
through meaningful play. Skills are integrated across activities.
Teachers serve as facilitators to guide children in interaction with the various learning opportunities. Each classroom is divided into interest centres such as art, dramatic play, block building, manipulative, sensory, Science, Math, and Language. Through play and self-initiated learning, the children refine their motor, thinking, language, and self-help skills necessary for success in school. The teaching at these levels integrates equally the Common Core State Standards.

Children are in general eligible for Kindergarten 2 once they turn five years by September 30 of the calendar year. This is the first stage of required formal education in the above mentioned domains. Processing experiences and information in interaction with adults and among children in many different ways form a central part of learning. Integrated themes and the learning
process are more important than stand-alone contents or subjects. A day in this program begins at 8:15 am and ends at 2:05 pm.
