The Vision Preschool program, which is intended for children aged 2 to 5, focusses on early immersion because “the sooner the better”, the development of motor skills through a specifically designed psychomotor program, and successful first steps in early literacy.
Preschool (2 years old)
Children get to develop their mental representation capacity, a necessary skill that will help them better understand their immediate environment. They learn more and more about everyday life through activities that are significant to them. They get to explore and reflect on their environment through interactions with other children and, of course, the always present educator. Through play, children develop both their personal and social skills.
Preschool (3 and 4 years old)
In this age group, the children’s intuition and knowledge is challenged in order to gradually develop a logical understanding of their environment. That’s why we focus on the participation of the 3 and 4-year olds in reflection and discussion activities where fun is always at the forefront. Socialization is becoming increasingly important, and children are guided to resolve conflicts using different strategies. Interactive reading of stories and pre-writing activities are more and more present.
Kindergarten (5 years old)
The activities for these children are mostly in English. Five hours a week are reserved for the children’s mother tongue and another three hours are for the third language. The teaching method is adapted to children of this age group and is based on learning through play. In addition to language skills, Vision Preschool focuses on the personal, social, cognitive and psychomotor development of all its children in order to ensure a quality transition to elementary school.
A gradual entry into the world of languages and structured locomotor activities, an excellent preparation for elementary school!
