Science and Sensory
The Elementary School program at Little World is offered from Kindergarten to Grade 3 for students from 2.5 to 9 years. Our kindergarten is based on Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Students grow and develop in an environment which encourages them to learn a variety of skills both academically and socially. Our approach is completely child-centered and the curriculum is planned in a way that enables children of various abilities to learn as a group, as well as individually.
Our Kindergarten program includes songs, rhymes, art and craft, pictures and stories to enable students to learn new skills such as phonics, numbers and conversation. We focus on an activity-based approach where learning and social development through field trips and structured games form an integral part of the curriculum.
LWIS seeks to nurture and develop students from diverse backgrounds and experiences who will make a difference in their communities. LWIS values the home-school partnership with parents and the warm and caring atmosphere in which students collaborate constructively, think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively.
We are committed to educating the whole child and giving an opportunity to learn by experience. Students learn to collaborate, think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively. Starting as early as K1, students are given opportunities to explore, experiment and discover with hands-on-learning. Throughout the elementary experience, the curriculum provides a framework for student creativity and curiosity.
The Elementary School curriculum is aligned with Common Core State Standards and follows a Standards Based grading scale. The program includes core subjects taught in a homeroom class environment along with encore (specialists) classes which include art, IT, Montessori and physical education. The core subjects include: English, Science, Social Studies, Math, and Arabic.
Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum and supported by technology coaches. The technology coaches help to develop learning opportunities for students using technology as well as how to become responsible digital citizens.
