English curriculum for Pre-k from 3 to 4 years old :


The Pre-K curriculum focuses on developing the whole child and understanding the importance of the unique child. We follow the principles of the EYFS from the UK which sets the standards for the learning development of the child as well as Montessori methods which focus on providing children with a hands-on approach to learning. Learning through play is key to our teaching philosophy. Children in Pre-K will focus on the following seven areas of learning:


Communication and Language

Language is an integral part of a child’s development. We understand the importance of creating rich, language environments for young children. We provide opportunities for them to develop confidence through regular speaking and listening activities in a variety of different ways. We encourage the children to use lots of language during Circle ‘talking’ Time and through speaking and listening games. 


Physical Development

For their physical development the children get the opportunity to develop their fine and gross motor skills everyday through a range of media and materials such as pencil control activities, painting, playdough and construction resources. Outdoor play is important aspect of children’s development. Children have access to trampolines, slides, balls and various other physical equipment to exercise their bodies and gross motor skills. We have a purpose-built indoor play area for the summer months so that children can continue to develop their gross motor skills using the gym equipment and mats.


Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We encourage the children to be independent learners as well as interact with their peers and adults in the class, for example, to share, take turns, ask to go to the toilet and to be able to follow the class routines.



Pre-K start to learn the letter sounds using the Jolly Phonics scheme.  We teach the children using the actions to each sound starting with ‘s,a’t’p’I’n’. The children also get shown the letter formation so they can gradually learn how to write it.  We use a range of resources and methods such as letter flash cards, songs, sound games and the use a range of practical activities to make their phonics learning fun and exciting. 



In Mathematics, we do various counting activities, through singing, number games and object recognition and rote count and recognise numbers 1-10.  We explore the basic shapes, colours, patterns, size and weight and look at comparisons to introduce the mathematical vocabulary.


Understanding the World

The children get the opportunity to develop their knowledge of the world through learning about their environment, community, and surroundings through a theme-based curriculum. They are encouraged to use their senses, develop critical thinking skills through investigative work and enhance their observational skills through experimenting. 


Expressive Arts & design

Children are encouraged to be expressive through regular art activities. They are taught to make their own choices and experiment with different textures, colours and materials. Children engage cutting and pasting activities which will further support their fine motor skills.

At this stage, we try to build the children's  personality and introduce them to oneself and to the environment around them.

In addition to reinforcing self confidence through a curriculum that develops the child intellectually, physically, educationally and socially until one becomes able to explore, develop, and adapt to the surroundings and environment within the family atmosphere in school. The children should feel that school is their second home.

Their friends are their brothers and sisters, so they will be able to merge into the society easily, because school is the door for the child into the social life.

The curriculum for this age group aims to:

1- Teach the child most of the Arabic letters, reading pictures of words related to the curriculum and spelling words that have a right connection to the themes.
