St. Edward Integrated School now makes full use of the K-12 program, the global standard of education that prepares young minds for a professional and even global setting. This means that the St. Edward Integrated School Kindergarten curriculum is now the compulsory and mandatory entry stage to basic education. Kindergarten essentially covers elementary level education, from grades one through six.
Research shows that this period is when a child experiences the greatest amount of growth and development in the brain. This is also the stage when self-esteem, moral foundations, and a greater vision of the world are established.
Our school’s facilities contain supplementary and immersive facilities that will ensure your child discovers any latent skills and develop holistic competencies that will prepare them for a higher level of education.
St. Edward Integrated School’s Kindergarten curriculum encompasses seven development domains that address specific growth aspects in your children. The developmental domains include the following:
- Socio-Emotional Development: This covers basic concepts focused on the child, how they relate with other people and their environment, as well as awareness of their social identity and cultural diversity within the school and other people
- Values Development: This helps set a moral compass for your children by demonstrating positive attitudes, building self-concept and respect, teaching how to behave appropriately in various situations, as well as educates about love of God, country, and fellowmen.
- Physical Health & Motor Development: This covers the development and fine tuning of your children’s gross motor skills, as well as acquiring an understanding of good health habits and the importance of general safety.
- Aesthetic and Creative Development: This development domain urges children to develop their aesthetic sense and creative expression through various mediums.
- Mathematics: This development domain helps your children understand and demonstrate knowledge, thinking skills, and insights in the realm of mathematics.
- Understanding of the Physical and Natural Environment: In this domain, children are expected to demonstrate basic understanding of concepts related to living and non-living things. This domain also urges them to acquire essential skills and sustain their natural curiosity.
- Language, Literacy, and Communication: This domain provides your children with opportunities on early literacy learning for self-expression through language, either using the mother tongue or the child’s first language.
Life-Long Positive Impact
We believe that for children to reach their full potential, they must spend their formative years in an environment in which they can learn at their own pace. This is how we structure our St. Edward Integrated School Kindergarten classes. The students will be surrounded by teachers who focus on each learner’s individual needs. This, in turn, leads to a life-long positive impact on children’s ability to learn and to maximize their cognitive, emotional, social, creative, and physical potential.
