SAM KIDS PROGRAMS

For every child ‘HOME’ is the first school and Parents the first teachers. Basic Schooling works up on and compliments the essence of the foundation laid at home. At school we try to reach out to a child's individual personality & temperament as we slowly try to shift them into an environment of "Play, Learn and Grow". Our main aim is to provide our children with enriching activities to facilitate their overall development.


A synopsis of the learning outcomes expected from a child on completion of each grade beginning at Play Group (PG), up until they complete Upper Kindergarten (UKG) is explained below.

  • PLAY GROUP (PG)
  • NURSERY (NUR)
  • LOWER KINDERGARTEN (LKG)
  • UPPER KINDERGARTEN (UKG)

We truly believe that every child should have that magical first preschool experience which should in every way be a home-away-from-home, an entry into a beautiful world of bright colours, cheerful musical, cuddly toys, & warm friendly faces. With a safe & happy environment their tears slowly turn to smiles, their fears turn to cheers, their insecurities to confidence. They slowly learn to interact with other kids, and make new friends.

While at school they are encouraged to explore, question and learn new things through the fun fill activities with the aid of puzzles, pictures, story-telling, nursery rhymes, out-door and in-door play, etc. . These activities help our little ones develop their various skills. During the course of time they learn to identify Alphabets, Numbers, Fruits, Vegetables, Colours, Animals & basic Shapes. They are taught the use of simple Golden Words through daily practices, such as…. when to say Sorry, Please & or Thank you, as well as experience stimulation of their five sense organs (see, hear, touch, smell & taste) and understand its basic functions.

They are offered wonderful opportunities to play, learn & grow in a warm, safe & stimulating environment.

In this grade the children cover the following areas involving the six main domains namely:

  • Math – Writing numbers 1 to 5 and its value, as well as Identification of numbers 1 to 10, more or less, etc.
  • Language – Identification of small & capital letters from ‘a’ to ‘z’ through flash cards. Follow the direction of these letters through sand writing, air writing, and the phonic sounds.
  • Knowledge of the World is developed through various General Knowledge activities (Monthly Theme & Legends), field trips etc. They understand important hygiene measures through on- hand daily practices. They are also taught the importance of various rules & safety measures through charts & mock drills.
  • Their Social & Emotional Skills are encouraged through imparting the values & joys of a family, building confidence & self esteem and the essential sense of belonging that develops them emotionally.
  • Their creative juices are put to the test through different mediums whereby they are able to exhibit their creative works and expressions.
  • The development of their Motor Skills are also enhanced through outdoor play, jumping, running (Gross Motor) and threading beads, tearing, crayon drawing (Fine Motor).

As they move into the higher section of their preschool years they leave behind all apprehensions & inhibitions, and start exhibiting more self confidence. They improve their language skills by identifying & writing Small & Capital Letters, recognizing Words starting with these letters, beginning sounds of corresponding words, rhyming words (e.g. cat, bat, mat etc), learn to complete sentences with 3 letter words & match words to pictures.

Their Math Skills are horned through learning to write numbers from 1 to 10, Counting & writing numbers against corresponding number of objects, +1 addition, concept of ‘before, after & in between’, reinforcing concepts of ‘tall & short, big & small, rough & smooth, fat & thin’, etc. Identify & sort object based on similar lengths, colours, shapes etc.

They are also given the opportunity to widen their horizon in the Theme Knowledge & Understanding through various informative topics discussed that include Parts of the Body, 5 Senses & its functions, Family, Modes of Transport, Underwater World, Solar System etc.

With a thorough understanding of the above subjects, they are slowly able to move into the intriguing essence of true learning.

An overview of the learning outcomes that prepare our little ones as they reach their final years of preschool, to step into a more structured world with confidence includes;

  • Communication and Writing skills which are developed using picture clues, drawings and experience on sound of letters.
  • Recognition of phonetic sounds of letters and use of phonic knowledge to read simple words, CVC words and Blend words.
