Typical Day at KG
School arrival is at 7:30 a.m., with class beginning at 7:45 a.m. and ending at 2:15 p.m. Recess and snack/lunch are woven throughout our day.
We encompass the holistic approach by exploring the below specialists:
- Physical Education
- Arabic Language
- Islamic Education
- Kitchen Lab
Our main pedagogical approach is inquiry, which moves students from their current understanding to new understanding by actively building connections between experiences and knowledge. Students become responsible for their learning by asking questions, carrying out investigations, and reflecting on their observations and processes in order to make a conclusion. Kindergarten classrooms are full of enriching, play-based engagements. Students manipulate the environment around them in order to make sense of the world.

We have enrichment opportunities throughout the year for students to share their learning, such as Arts Festival and Sports Day. Each class participates in community shares, student-led conferences, and end of unit celebrations; these are times when students communicate their learning to parents either in the classroom or in the auditorium.
