About Our Preschool
A pre-school denotes a space that a child goes to before mainstream school. At the Helen O'Grady International, we call our preschool an early learning space. Therefore our classes are called early learning programmes 1,2,3,4 respectively.We find the word preschool a little limiting - we are not focusing on getting children prepared just to fit into mainstream school, we are preparing them for life. The Helen O'Grady International early learning solutions brings different programmes for early learners in order to build in them a love for learning, skills to become researchers and independant learners and most of all to collaborate with each other to create new knowledge every day.
The Helen O'Grady International Preschool is a Reggio Emilia Inspired preschool. All teachers are trained in the Reggio Emilia Approach through a partnership with Reggio practitioners from different parts of the world. The curriculum focuses on building 21 st Century Skills, encourages teachers and learners to move up the Bloom's Taxonomy to build higher order thinking, believes that parents teachers and the society need to work together to support the learning process of every child.
