Pre school experience at IDSA is a wonderful one for all of us teachers, parents and the infants. This, not only marks the beginning of a regular organized interactions with other infants (peers) outside the family house, but also the first exposure to a foreign language for many infants, and in some cases, for parents. Our pre-school students have the full comfort of highly interactive setting which help to ensure easy acclimatization. We at IDSA understand that learning at this level goes hand-in-hand with play. So, the classrooms are richly resourced to encourage play. Our highly qualified and experienced pre-school teachers ensure the students are properly guided towards exploring sensory experiences.
The cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of each child is highly emphasized through our low student-teacher ratio. Our faculty sees each child as an individual, and provides opportunities for them to, not only discover themselves and the world around them, but also develop the much needed curiosity for further learning.
A unique feature of IDSA pre-school program is leveraging the curiosity in kids into laying a solid English phonetic foundation. This is skillfully integrated into all curriculum and extra-curriculum activities of the children. For non-Anglophone, a special English-language support is offered. These special supports classes are provided in an exciting small group setting allowing for one-to-one attention.
IDSA pre-school covers Nursery, Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten 1, and kindergarten 2. Progressively, the infants evolve from early exploration and play groups to reading and writing ready pre-school graduates.
