To empower our children with all abilities to create a more vibrant and energized world leading them to be happy life-long learners.
Kara4Kids is committed to creating a loving and creative inclusive environment for each child in preparation for early success and school readiness. Kara4Kids fosters a collaborative and enquiry play-based approach to develop the skills necessary for them to construct their own knowledge and prepare children by valuing and enhancing their physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.
“The Stronger the start, the greater the finish.”
Kara4Kids unfolds and reveals an inclusive and exploratory program focusing on learning that strengthens a value and skill based pedagogy. The programme gives an opportunity to keep in mind the importance of the core needs of the child culminating into the required academic strengths.
Learning being a two-way process, encourages our facilitators to create a well-defined high quality inclusive setting. Our learning environment encourages a stimulating experience which further leads to an investigative programme instilling alongside values of integrity, independence, respect and tolerance giving rise to appreciation, commitment and self-actualization. Our early childhood programme at Kara4Kids contributes to the realisation of the importance of starting the learning process early to improve society and build an enabling environment. Within the inclusive setting, all children have the right to a quality education that leads to success.
The pillars of the Kara4Kids programme lies within the development of the whole child. This begins in the early years through the use of the arts and manipulatives. During this time, the teachers help the children to build their personal, social and emotional development through positive and meaningful experiences. We further this investigative programme in K1 and K2 where the children hone in on their mathematics, science, technology, research, and language skills. Within this period, curiosity and a love for learning is further fostered to help develop 21st century skills.
Parents, being the child’s first teacher, we, at Kara4Kids take this to heart by keeping close ties with all parents we serve. We strive to build strong relationships with families that reflect positively in the life of the child. With our open-door policies, we encourage families to contribute and add dimension to our early learning facility.
