Early Childhood

Full Day.Half Day.3 Day Option
We nurture our students here at I.S.T. from the age of 2, and are delighted to offer our IST families a state-of-the-art early childhood department for our youngest learners. This exceptional, 21st-century learning environment encourages and promotes children’s cognitive, social and emotional development. Our newly renovated early childhood is fully equipped with age-appropriate, play-based equipment, custom collaborative furniture, promoting a love for learning, collaborative interactions and fun!
 
We place great emphasis on the pastoral care of all of our children, but none more so than with our youngest learners; social and emotional development is a hugely important focus in our early childhood unit. Throughout our day, we lovingly guide the children to collaborate with each other; teaching and encouraging them to share, to use good manners and politeness and to speak and interact with others in a caring and respectful manner.
 
In our early childhood department, we offer our students a varied curriculum, nurturing them both socially and academically, to adequately prepare them for their ultimate transition into Pre-k and beyond. The children engage in age-appropriate lessons in literacy, IT and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), as well as the teaching of modern foreign languages (Spanish and Mandarin). Activities are differentiated according to each child’s needs and we pride ourselves on our low-stress environment.
 
Our early childhood staff members are experts within their field and hold a clear passion for, and experience in, teaching early childhood. In addition, we have bilingual teachers on staff to encourage Spanish language development. Though lessons are delivered in English, having bilingual staff members allows them to interact with the children in both English and Spanish, to promote fluency.
 
We offer 3-day, half and full day programs. 3-Day students attend Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:20- 3:30. Half-day students are in attendance from 8.20-12.30, daily; while our full time friends remain in the early childhood class from 8.20-3.30. In addition, IST. offers a nutritious, well-balanced and delicious menu for all our students and staff, all of which is included in tuition fees. All children are provided with a healthy morning snack and full lunch.
 
We are exceptionally proud of our early childhood unit and believe it provides our students with best possible opportunity to begin a lifelong love of learning and a sense of international mindedness throughout IST and beyond.
