In the Kindergarten program preschool students continue their learning journey through more rigorous academic challenges and leading their young preschool inmates using teacher directed approach. At this age the program nurtures their inner drive for learning by providing opportunities to try something new.

The program makes learning fun and interesting using musical, logical-mathematical, linguistic, and interpersonal traits. E.g. use of flash cards for mathematics, building new vocabulary through songs and stories etc. Following a structured curriculum designed by the teacher based on each child’s individual needs kids work through a set of sensorial, language, mathematics, community relations through food drives, foreign language and music as part of their daily curriculum.
