Introduction & Curriculam

The general purpose of any Kindergarten program is different from that of upper grades. The goal is to emphasize social and emotional development and add to the child’s knowledge of the world as much as to teach academic skills.

Kindergarten is an introduction to school structure, to learning, to cooperation and interaction with other children and to explore new worlds. While Kindergarten is based on play, it is serious play with emphasis on thinking, solving, sharing ideas. Reading and Writing skills are encouraged but individualized because each child comes in with a different background and level of preparation. The Kindergarten program also prepares children for Math which formally begins in first grade, while Science and Social Studies are introduced with Scholastic Weekly Readers and exploring ideas.

Through these activities, children learn the alphabet and letter sounds, numbers and simple math and master early writing skills. Furthermore, each child's development is measured thrice in a year through well designed assessment as part of Neptune’s Pride’s unique pedagogy iLLUME.
