UPPER KINDERGARTEN

At Sha Manyu children are motivated and well equipped to face the challenges of formal schooling system. UKG is a program to prepare the child for primary school education. It facilitates the smooth transition from pre-school to a structured learning environment and formal school.

They are healthy, caring individuals, good communicators, independent thinkers, lifelong learners and global citizens. They explore their environment in depth. Their reading, writing and communication skills improve. They are engaged in simple logical thinking and problem solving exercises. They are aware of safety precautions as well as the health and hygiene standards. Teachers give children a sense of control over the events of the day by planning a predictable yet flexible daily routine. They assess each child's progress and plan educational experiences that will encourage further learning.

The Pre-Primary Program at Sha Manyu is designed to get them ready for school by teaching them letters, words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With special focus on math and science tasks, which are vital school readiness skills, children are introduced to patterns, classification and identification of shapes. Teachers engage kids with preschool activities and provide many hands on opportunities for children to explore colours, animals, plants, etc. In our centres, children also develop literary skills at an early age primary education. They are engaged in meaningful reading and writing experiences, and they are encouraged to become readers and writers through a unique combination of child-initiated learning and teacher-guided instruction. Small group instructions, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and big group pre primary activities help children gain the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into school.
