Why is it important for St. George’s School children to begin schooling in Kindergarten?
It is extremely important for children to begin their education at Saint George’s School in Kindergarten when they are four years old. It is here that children begin most of their learning processes at school both socially and academically. During the five hours of class in English per day the basis of most of the disciplines and programmes studied during Primary School are started.
Since Kindergarten we work on the acquisition of good social habits, values, team work, order, discipline, motivation, routines that simplify life, the joy of discovering new ideas and experiences.
From the age of four with Ginn Abacus Mathematics also used in England; through playful activities and using concrete material the child acquires reasoning strategies in basic math, all very important for his future growth.
Students begin to learn to read and write in English with the Oxford Reading Tree books which are also widely used in Great Britain with children their age. They acquire a vast vocabulary, through very attractive stories with familiar characters and with a sense of humour. Oxford programme is continued in the following years.
The study of Science is also begun using experiments, research, discovering the world around us and children’s vast natural curiosity, asking the right questions so they can find the answers.
Physical Education and Expression, Art, Music, Computing, all are introduced in Kindergarten.
In Spanish as well as in English children at Saint George’s School begin their learning process in Kindergarten
