Welcome to Kindergarten!
At HIS you will know how learning is fun. Our program focuses on how to acquire knowledge and skills through playing and practicing different activities.
As researches informs us that during our earliest years and even pre-birth, a large part of the pattern for our future adult life is set; therefore we acknowledge that positive early years' experiences give children the best start in life.
At that critical phase, we focus on providing a safe, secure and happy learning environment in which each child:
- Loves coming to school
- Develops a range of social skills to work and play with others
