Our curriculum for Kindergarten at Al Sabah Indian School, Al Dhaid, Sharjah is a perfect blend of child-initiated as well as teacher-led activities, which are strategically planned with a focus on all the areas of learning. To ensure all round development of the children, we concentrate on the seven areas of learning; namely Communication and Language, Personal Social & Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Numeracy, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts & Design. We use these areas of learning and development while observing, assessing and planning for the children’s individual needs. Through this we make sure that we are constantly challenging the children and helping them to develop and succeed.
