Toddlers: Koalas starting with 18 months
We believe children’s early experiences should be play based with a high focus on the little ones social skills. The early learning requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn about the world we live in. We give our students those needed time to explore and develop in a age-appropriate setting and approach! Following the motto: “learning from and with each other! Every day!”
Pre-S: Elephants, Giraffes & Penguins 2.5 to 4 years
The most important goal is to help the children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts. Our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive students. We’re teaching them how to learn now and in the future for the upcoming generations. German ISD’s focus is on adapting with the tempo of each individual student and his/her ability to learn with a focus on each individual resources.
Pre-K: Lions 5 years old
Children in pre-k class are generally 4 or 5 years old. While each child develops at his or her own pace, in general, children in the “lion” classes engage in kindergarten readiness activities involving deeper learning and more structured skill building. German ISD’s focus is on school readiness: Typically through group-time instruction and playful activities woven throughout the day. In the pre-k program students are getting ready for advanced learning and organized skill building. The children focused on kindergarten readiness by participating in structured pre-reading, writing, and math activities throughout the day and the offered programs throughout the school year.
