Kindergarten (KG)

Kindergarten provides children with the opportunity to learn and practice the essential social, emotional, and problem-solving skills that they will need throughout their lives. This is where core cognitive skills are developed and the primary skills required for reading, counting, and social interaction are put in place.

With Open Space Learning Classrooms, we help our learners to amplify the learning experience. Children do not simply sit around and learn things, but they build and learn from hands-on experience.
