The role of Kindergarten
Kindergarten is the first essential step in a student's academic path. It includes the first cycle of initial knowledge (Cycle 1). The main objective is for children to become pupils.
The main mission of pre-primary education is to motivate children to go to school in order to learn new things, discover and develop their personalities. Developing their language capacities in speaking and discover writing, numeracy and other domains of knowledge. At this stage, they learn through games, thinking, problem-solving, exercising and memorising.
By playing and participating in educational activities, children who enrol kindergarten learn to socialise and live together.
