Pre-School Programme (ages 2-3)

The early years of a child's life are ones of rapid growth and development. The vital contribution of pre-school education lies in developing and broadening children’s learning experiences, leaving them confident, eager and enthusiastic learners.

At our Aga Khan Nursery School, children begin the Pre-School Programme at the age of 2. During this year, children learn through play, social interactions and activities that are developmentally appropriate and cater to their individual learning styles. The classroom is carefully organized to meet the specific needs of two to three years old. The teacher and the environment encourage child to develop a lifelong learning fueled by their inner curiosity. There is a well-balanced ratio of free play and planned activities to awaken the children’s interest and enthusiasm for learning.

Through the Pre-School Programme, each child has the opportunity to strengthen their language skills, refine their gross and fine motor skills and develop independence and confidence. Learning takes place inside and outside the classrooms, through an inquiry-based approach. This provides children with a wealth of exciting opportunities to acquire new skills, understandings and knowledge. The carefully constructed learning engagements provide for an enriching experience which helps to develop the whole child. Our AKNPS Nursery provides a safe and stimulating learning environment, where children get the opportunity to experiment, explore and discover.

The attributes of the IB Learner Profile are embedded in the Pre-School Programme to allow for a smooth transition when the children transition to the IB PYP programme at the age of 3, in KG 1.
