Early Childhood & Pre-K
The Early Childhood & Pre-K at Colegio Maya offers an experience for children that will build a positive attitude toward learning. Within the context of project-based learning, we provide a wealth of experiences in a safe and relaxed environment, led by a team of highly experienced teachers who specialize in Early Childhood Education.
Our teachers facilitate opportunities for hands-on active learning and exploration. They create specialized learning environments that allow the children to explore a new activity everyday whether that be with blocks or in the role-play corner. This exploration helps children to develop their fine and gross motor skills and improve social interaction. Children also engage in hands-on activities in math to explore mathematical relationships, to learn to expect and identify patterns, and to solve problems.
All projects are designed to enable students to become inquisitive, communicative and confident young learners. We develop our student’s confidence in communicating ideas to others through developmentally appropriate activities in speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Projects offer integration across relevant subject areas and our teachers work closely together to achieve this. Integration provides a common framework, making learning more meaningful and connected, learning is better understood and retained longer if children make connections. Children’s progress is regularly assessed and the results provide the basis for further instructional decisions.
