Upper Pre-School 3 - 5 years

In Upper Pre-School we create learning experiences which inspire students to actively apply their knowledge, understanding and skills in their daily play. We achieve this through IB Units of Inquiry.
As they progress through Upper Pre-School, children continue to develop their independence and are encouraged to manage their own clothes, food and play. During our daily learning experiences there is also a focus on early literacy and mathematics, through the introduction and exploration of numbers and sounds.

The children in the Upper Pre-School (Pre-School 4 and 5) follow a programme combining the learning as described in the IB Primary Years Program (PYP). The Norwegian Framework plan (Rammeplan) and Learning Goals from The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) completes our Pre-School curriculum.

In the Upper Pre-School children are encouraged to develop their phonic knowledge through our Letter and Sounds programme. We encourage children to develop their phonic knowledge through listening, understanding and play based activities, to lay the foundations for reading and writing.

Mathematics is a key part of our program. Within their play based learning activities, the children explore and experience numbers, shapes, space and measures in practical ways.
