YCIS’s Early Childhood Education Section is one of the top international kindergartens in Hong Kong supported by a highly experienced team of early years educators. Children joining our Three’s and Four’s whole day programmes will enjoy a fun-filled positive experience which will assist their development in all areas through the following channels:
Developing Positive Relationships
The most important learning that occurs in the preschool years (ages 3 and 4) is facilitating children’s social and emotional development. The ability to understand and control one’s own emotions, to develop meaningful relationships, to persist in the face of frustration or disappointment, and to conform to social expectations are supported by sensitive, and skilled early years teachers. Our children have access to an open campus on certain afternoons where they will enjoy interacting with students and teachers from other classes. Parents are invited to join our open campus sessions too.
Responding to Children’s Interests
The whole day programme provides a total immersion in child-led play which helps to build self-confidence, encourages exploration and fosters inquisitiveness. Children follow their own interests in a safe environment. The bilingual play-based learning environment is intentionally prepared to expand knowledge and respond to children’s interests as they inquire about the world in which they live.
Developing Skills through Meaningful Activities
The concepts and skills that are important for preschool learning are embedded in meaningful activities in the indoor and outdoor environments. Children see themselves as readers and writers as they retell favourite stories and express themselves through art, music, and dance. They produce their own constructions and designs to express their creative and intellectual thoughts. Building with blocks, cooking, sand and water play – all provide opportunities to learn and practise the skills of mathematics as well as the concepts of scientific discovery.
