The KG program emphasizes social skills, sensory and motor development, Language Arts, Science and Mathematics.
Instructional methods at DIS focus on the idea that not all students start at the same level, learn in the same way, or master skills at the same pace. Flexible grouping is be used to address the needs of all students, and to challenge them to stretch their abilities and master new skills. Instructional objectives are clearly defined in all subject areas, but academic expectations are flexible enough to both support and challenge each individual learner. Instruction in all areas encourages students to grow as creative worker, critical thinkers, and effective communicators. Technology, with Internet access in computer labs and libraries, is integrated throughout our program. The curriculum is designed to help children to broaden their base of information, form concepts, acquire foundation skills and positive attitudes to learning and begin to develop their abilities and talents in a wide range of areas. Learning expectations include the child’s development of literacy, knowledge and skills in Mathematics and Science.
