Welcome to EIS Early Childhood Center!

Our ECC strongly believes that positive experiences during the early years of schooling have a profound effect on feelings of self worth and future attitudes towards learning. We provide a safe, nurturing and intellectually engaging environment that promotes learning. The ECC serves four levels: Toddlers, Nursery, Pre-Kinder, and Kindergarten in which play is an essential component of our curriculum: through play children acquire skills that enable them to explore their environment, solve problems, work cooperatively with others, and achieve academic success.

 

The Early Childhood Center (ECC) at Escuela Internacional Sampedrana offers bilingual education in a playful environment. Our program offers services for children ages 2 ½ to 6 ½ years of age in the Toddlers (2 ½) Nursery (3 ½ year olds), pre-kindergarten (4 ½ year olds) and Kindergarten (5 ½ year olds) programs.

 

Play is an essential component of our curriculum. Through play, children acquire skills that enable them to explore their environment, solve real problems, work cooperatively with others, and achieve academic success.

 

Our teachers are enthusiastic and positive about what children are capable of learning. They are learners too, strengthening their teaching and being innovative in their practices.

 

Our parents are actively involved in their child’s education. They can actively participate in the classroom, presentations, committees, and extra curricular activities.

At the ECC-EIS we prepare children to be academically, socially, and morally successful in the successive stage in the educational ladder, elementary school, at EIS or elsewhere.

ECC Philosophy

At the E.I.S. Early Childhood Center, we prize each individual child. A positive experience during the early years of schooling has a profound effect on feelings of self-worth and future attitudes towards learning. Our center provides a safe, nurturing and intellectually engaging environment that promotes learning.

We guide our children to:

• Develop dispositions for lifelong learning such as curiosity, creativity, perseverance and responsibility;
• Show caring and empathy towards others;
• Learn self-control;
• Become responsible for their own learning, behavior, and safety;
• Communicate effectively;
• Find pleasure in the process of learning and also in the product;
• Acquire information and the skills to find answers.
• Learn basic skills and concepts through concrete experiences and be able to represent these ideas in multiple ways.

We teach children to become good communicators, readers and writers and we use active methods of inquiry and investigation to teach mathematical and scientific thinking. We use computer technology as a tool to enhance learning. Themes and projects are used for our curriculum planning. Assessment and evaluation processes are in place to ensure trustworthy results regarding children’s strengths and capabilities in development and learning.
