Early Childhood (EC)

Early Childhood development takes place in the context of families and communities. At SIS, the development of the whole child is shaped by the day-to-day experiences and environments of their daily life. The Early Childhood program at SIS nurtures creativity while providing opportunities for inquiry and discovery.

Growth and development

The early years are a time of tremendous growth and development.  Whether through table inquiries in the classroom, circle time, free inquiry play outside, or while attending art, swimming, and physical education classes growth happens in the following four areas :

  • Social/Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Cognitive Development
  • Language Development

Recognizing that all students progress at different rates, we measure student growth on a developmental continuum.

Teachers treat the students with respect and yet challenge them to do their best.  They support them to try new things and make them feel the sky's the limit.
