Our Kindergarten programme is a carefully designed, interactivity-based learning methodology aimed at building a strong academic foundation in children. This course is for the duration of three years and is offered for students aged 3 –5, with three entry points at Nursery, Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten.
Our highly enjoyable Kindergarten programme results in the acquisition of listening, literacy and numeracy skills, allowing students to comfortably transition into primary school. We use the tried and tested Jolly Phonics and Oxford Reading schemes, providing a solid foundation for developing reading and writing abilities in children.
The kindergarten curriculum has been developed in-house by the staff and academic advisors of NPS International School.

The kindergarten provides a homogenous atmosphere for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. The activities planned give the child opportunities to work alone as well as in a group. The programme is directed towards developing creativity, curiosity and divergent thinking.
The kindergarten programme involves a variety of child-centered activities that help in attaining the course objectives. The phonic and sight word training lays the foundation for early reading and writing. In numeracy students do hands-on activities and record observations for quantifying numbers, number manipulative, measurement, patterns and two and three dimensional shapes.
The topics under Unit of Study are approached through experiments, group discussions, observations, field trips and guest speakers are invited to enhance the child’s knowledge. Outdoor and indoor activities like jumping, hopping, carrying, balancing, playing with building blocks, cutting, threading and lacing enhance the finer muscle coordination.
