Curricular methodologies include the conventional and artificial-intelligence supported, synchronous and asynchronous, interactive learning, assessments, and reporting.

 

Early Childhood Education:

 

The first two years are spent in the creation of the child’s “sense of self”. This is a crucial part of the child ability to determine and embed the patters of future behavior in relation to environment and others. Early care must emphasis links to family home culture and home language for uniquely caring for each child. The key is a well-integrated learning environment at WIS which builds and nurtures the child’s optimal development. Our Kindergarten School program (ages 1.5 - 5 yrs.) is focused on developing communications, social, personal, and aesthetic skills, through activity-based, thematic teaching methods.  Teachers and their associates motivate and facilitate progressive exploration and discovery through hands-on experience. Monterssorials application helps the child to establish conceptual learning in concrete form. Cross-disciplinary syllabi are integrated in to a holistic comprehension of the world and humanity. Early learning focuses on the child’s learning through play.

 

Students are exposed to a minimum of five class periods and two recess breaks per day, for five days in a week.  These classes incorporate a balanced mix of the following:

 

  1.  Language Arts - Reading, writing, vocabulary, poetry/rhymes, music, stories, and  drama.
