Early Learning

Where dreams begin

ELC students enter the Early Learning Centre in the morning to hellos and happy smiles and anticipate all the activities they will get to participate in each day. They exit each day and say their goodbyes to teachers and friends knowing they will come back and continue their journey of lifelong learning.

The Early Learning Centre offers an opportunity for young children to begin their educational journey in an energetic, caring and fun atmosphere. We celebrate the joy of young children learning and growing through play, exploration and both self-directed and teacher-directed activities.

ELC students learn through themes incorporated into the IPC, International Primary Curriculum. The IPC allows students the opportunity to develop international mindedness and encourages personal learning.  It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject. 

ELC students develop a love for reading and writing in a caring environment that adapts to children’s individual needs. Our literacy programme, Read Write Inc teaches our students to read sounds and words, form letters accurately, spell words, and compose their ideas step-by-step. They experience success from the very beginning of their educational journey.

Our classrooms are well-equipped and provide a rich and varied environment for learning. In addition to our academic offerings, students also participate in specialty areas such as sport, drama, music and information technology.

Our Goal...

...is to help children develop socially as well as intellectually, while at the same time building their self-esteem, confidence and a sense of independence.  We hope to prepare our students for success as they leave the ELC and enter into their primary school years.

The best way to experience the ELC is to see it first-hand.
