Learning & Teaching Philosophy
Having Fun While Learning
Learning through play is fundamental to the philosophy of learning at Abroad International School. We recognize that play is an essential element in the development of young children, providing situations where they control the events and construct knowledge. Important conceptual, social, and language skills are developed during these times. Through play they explore their environment, learn to deal with problems, and learn to work within a group.
The Sooner The Better
It’s best for infants, who learn through their senses, to be instructed from early ages. Infants do not need a reason to learn anything. They learn what you teach. Infants are continually learning and advancing, on a day to day basis. Through play, exploration and imitation, children of this age acquire skills and knowledge.
Therefore especially for non-natives, learning English at an early age lays a firm foundation of the language. Children are able to achieve natural rhythm, pronunciation and intonation.
Learning By Creating Curiosity
By creating curiosity Abroad International School believes that children will be supported in developing the knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world and therefore support their learning through offering opportunities for them to use a range of tools safely; encounter creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments and in real-life situations; undertake practical ‘experiments’ ; and work with a range of materials.
Each Child is Unique
Abroad International School recognizes that every child is unique and brings qualities from birth that can all be directed in a positive and acceptable direction. We respect each child as an individual with their own characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, interests, temperament, strategies and learning pace in a safe, happy, free, caring and respectful environment.
