The CHILD develops key skills and learns at his or her unique pace through Fifteen Subjects/Programmes.
The ability to learn is the most important part of a child’s development. The preschool years are highly formative and they allow parents and teachers a wonderful opportunity to develop a child’s psycho-social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills, which can last them a life time. Keeping in mind the rapid pace at which a Preschooler’s brain is developing, our Star Learner Programme is based on an amazing curriculum that ensures that each child benefits from a vast array of knowledge, ideas, activities and projects. The Star Learner Programme focuses on nurturing Fifteen Skills/Knowledge areas that are essential for the holistic development of a child.
Books are a gateway to a world of imagination and endless possibilities. At NGS Preschool, we believe that reading books from as early an age as possible is vital for child development, as those children who read are most likely to fulfill their ambitions and succeed. The Reading Programme designed by the experts of NGS Preschool inculcates the love of reading and writing in our Reading Rabbits. We aim to expand the Vocabulary of our toddlers, along with teaching them correct Pronunciation and Grammar. We hope to enhance their Imagination, which will eventually lead to good lifelong Writing and Speaking skills. We also look forward to increasing Concentration levels of our Reading Rabbits, and eventually associate pleasure with books.
At NGS Preschool, we believe that Art is a process. Therefore, we have created a safe place for our Creative Caterpillars to relax and enjoy themselves, through which they will naturally develop at their own pace and their ability to create will expand. Through the NGS Preschool Arts Programme, our Preschoolers will experiment utilizing unique materials with a variety of art techniques to finesse their motor skills. Learning to produce and appreciate visual aesthetics is vital for a child’s mental growth. Our Preschoolers learn to broaden their Cultural knowledge, develop Innovation, enhance their Visual learning and stimulate their Self Expression with Art.
Children of all ages express themselves through music. They sing, sway and dance from an early age. Music is a universal language known to accelerate brain development, increase language acquisition and foster relationships. It helps the mind and body work together in harmony. Therefore, sufficient stimulation and exposure to music play is necessary to teach emotional and social maturity. NGS Preschool has uniquely designed a Music Programme which combines various forms of musical experiences through which our Music Maestros will have opportunities to develop emotionally, socially and intellectually as they tune their motor skills, numeracy, creativity and rhythmic sense.
Logical minds are developed via exercising the brain in a multitude of mind training activities. Logical minds are required for successful decision making, planning, organizing and completing projects. Logical minds are the cornerstone of presenting an effective argument. Mathematics is one tool for developing a logical mind. The Mathematics curriculum offered at NGS Preschool is a fantastic tool that enables our Preschoolers to develop a logical mind and numeracy skills which will last them a life time.
The rising importance of technology and the infiltration of digital-learning Programmes into our education system have made it necessary for children to become knowledgeable and skillful in the realm of technology. The NGS PRESCHOOL Technobots Programme teaches our students the basics of computers, digital technologies and Robotics. Our Award winning Wize Floor facility also caters to this programme, where children learn and revise educational concepts through physical movement on the Wizefloor, which is a cornerstone of the Multiple Intelligences philosophy.
We learn best through Scientific Inquiry. Our Science Programme is embedded within all our projects and activities. The scientific perspective enables us to create a hypothesis, to gather evidence and to prove or disprove the hypothesis. This mode of learning enables our Preschoolers to draw valid conclusions via the construction of rational arguments based on available scientific evidence. In order to develop analytical minds, children need to be taught beyond the ‘X causes Y’ theoretical approach. Since a young age, their minds need to be developed so that when they observe a phenomenon they do not settle for the simplest explanation without conducting scientific inquiry. This is how Scientists think and Inventors are born! The NGS Preschool Curriculum is geared towards encouraging our Preschoolers to become Savvy Scientists through fun scientific activities.
Developing a healthy body is equally important to developing a healthy mind. Our Culinary Crafts Programme aims to enhance a child’s knowledge about the human body, proper nutrition and healthy eating habits. Our Preschoolers are exposed to different cuisines of the world and other creative activities so that they can experience and appreciate the diversity of nutritious diets followed around the globe. Our International Cuisine Day is a very popular event among our parents who are invited as guests to our International Cafes and serviced by our Preschoolers. The Culinary Crafts Programme is a holistic Programme that develops a child’s fine motor skills, communication skills, vocabulary and confidence levels, while he/she learns about different languages, different cultures, and various traditions.
Physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health. Exercise has also proven to improve a child’s skill at reading, memorization and arithmetic. Our Sporty Spiders are encouraged to cultivate essential psychomotor skills in a non-competitive environment. They have the opportunity to build their confidence, develop teamwork and leadership qualities, learn principles through fair play, and take success or failure in their stride. We strive to teach lifelong lessons on and off the pitch, which eventually shape our Sporty Spiders into honest and reliable adults.
Our students are provided multiple opportunities to develop and hone their fine motor skills and gross motor skills so that they are ready to perform basic life skills once they graduate from NGS PRESCHOOL.
The Neo-Montessori system is highly focused on developing and enhancing the use of all five senses (sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell) which assists in helping our students gather and utilize useful data from their surroundings as they navigate through their journeys in life.
NGS PRESCHOOL focuses on developing a strong foundation in English Literacy from a young age and focuses on enhancing recognition, formation, phonics and vocabulary of the English Alphabet through fun activities and play based learning.
NGS PRESCHOOL also focuses on developing a strong foundation in Urdu Literacy starting in Reception, to enhance recognition, formation, phonics and vocabulary of the Urdu Letters through fun activities and play based learning.
NGS PRESCHOOL implements latest research techniques in the teaching of both English and Urdu language to improve each child’s grammar, expression, speaking skills and writing skills.
At NGS PRESCHOOL, we believe that it is essential to gain knowledge about the religion of Islam, Islamic history, religious festivals, important ‘duas’ and daily recitations. Our young ones are taught all the essential practical elements of the Islamic religion within their classroom environment starting from Preschool level.
The student body at NGS PRESCHOOL reflects inclusion and diversity. We have had the pleasure of educating not only Muslim children from Pakistan, but we have also educated Muslims from different countries and cultures, non-Muslims belonging to the Chinese culture, African culture, Arab culture and so on. Our well researched and inclusive curriculum hence ensures that all our students are knowledgeable about the Islamic religion and have respect and tolerance for other religions, cultures and their practices, while appreciating that all religions promote peace and compassion. We strive to develop RESPECT for DIVERSITY, in this increasingly interconnected world. [Endorsed by the SINGLE NATIONAL CURRICULUM, Government of Pakistan, 2021]
