Pre School (Play Group, Kindergarten-I & II)

Students start their school at the age of 3+. Education in the early years is vitally important for the children to acquire basic skills. It is important that foundations are laid on which future learning can take place. If children are well motivated, enthusiastic, interested and happy then they learn more effectively. We aim to develop these skills in a creative, imaginative and original way.

The children need to learn in an atmosphere where they are not afraid to make mistakes and this in turn becomes an important part of the learning process. Each child will be encouraged to reach their highest potential and motivated to want to continue learning.

The Four Principles:

American Lycetuff School System Early Years framework sets standards for the development, learning and well-being of the children. We ensure that all children benefit from the safe and happy environment where they can play and learn together. Our curriculum reflects the four overreaching principles, as prescribed in the UK EYFS “Statutory Framework”.

A UNIQUE CHILD

More power to the child

American Lycetuff School focuses on the key competencies and skills with appropriate depth and range, giving control and responsibility of learning to the child. Our role is that of a facilitator, supporting our children in learning and equipping them for lifelong learning in the best manner.

POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS

Quality connections

Children thrive where they are raised in an environment in which they share secure, quality attachments with adults and peers. They flourish in a setting where the entire learning community is appreciable, considerate, enthusiastic, encouraging and happy.

ENABLING ENVIRONMENTS

Place for children to ‘be’

We value the innate potential of each child. Our Early Years teachers facilitate young children’s learning and thinking. Our free-flow play approach encourages child-initiated learning within and outside the classroom. Our provisions offer diverse learning experiences to young children in a holistic way.

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Posing to solve with fun

A holistic curriculum offers children varied prospects to be creatively involved in their own learning, building on what they already know and can do thus strengthening their interest and understanding. Teachers promote problem solving by embedding play activities that foster thinking. This practice furnishes them with the ability to transfer their skills in a variety of contexts. We value child-initiated learning to achieve the intended highest learning outcomes.
