Early Childhood (pre-K and Kindergarten) is a student’s introduction to the world of full-day academic training.  Our program is founded on American education standards and designed to help students develop the skills and habits which will lead them to success throughout their academic careers.  The homeroom is the place to learn the fundamentals of reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies.  Lessons are designed to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners, and students have the opportunity to access and share knowledge in a variety of ways to ensure that they fully understand the material.  Students also learn the social skills and expectations which are necessary to live, play and work in harmony with those around them.

With specialist Music, Art and PE teachers, weekly visits to the library and computer lab and regular field trips to explore the community around them GIFS Early Childhood students are valued and productive members of the school community.
