Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Teachers prepare children for success in school and life. We are aware of the academic, physical and motor competences your child needs for kindergarten. Teachers guide children in play and fun intentional education experiences for children to become effective learners.

Twice a year, parents and teachers meet to discuss the childâ??s progress.

The teacher helps the child adjust and the Director encourages parent to view the child on the security camera system after the parent has said good-bye to the child and left the classroom. Usually by the time the parent reaches the office to view the child, the child is happily playing with friends and the parent is able to go to work relieved that the child is happy at Kinder World.
