In Kindergarten we started this week with a special Lego day. Kids love playing with Lego and that way they acquire all kinds of skills, such s pre-math, fine motor skills that are important for writing later on, and solving a puzzles. They also learn to be creative and they have a great sense of accomplishment once they finish something.
Early Years (Ages 2 to 5)
At Rome International School, we provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment. Our Early Years department follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, starting from age 3.
Our inquiry-driven approach fosters curiosity, a love of life-long learning and promotes children's social, emotional and personal growth.
The natural curiosity of children is a motivating source for learning. Play that is associated with academic learning is an act of ‘inquiry’. We believe inquiry connotes critical and reflective thinking that promotes the attainment of the intellectual capacity of every child.
As educators, it is essential that we allow children to play in order to allow them to learn in a manner that is natural and fun to them. The power of play as the engine of learning is a vital force for young children’s physical, social and emotional development.
Following the worldwide Teddy Bear Hunt, inspired by the children's book, We are Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen, Kindergarten organised their very own hunt.
