AL BATEEL KINDERGARTEN
In our classrooms, you will see children engaged in age appropriate learning and play that includes listening, creating, imagining, singing, sharing, interacting, and concentrating. You will see our students learn about themselves, and others; learn about feelings and communicating; learn about moving and doing; and see them acquire thinking skills, all while building an educational foundation on “how to learn” which will prepare them for the rest of their lives. Children's daily learning experiences include activities that promote the importance of a healthy lifestyle through good food choices, a broad range of experiences, and “Learning Outside the Classroom” adventures.
Special Needs Support Provided
Children with disabilities are, first and foremost, children, and then children who may need support or adaptations for learning. The term "special needs" refers to a wide range of developmental disabilities or learning needs that may occur in different areas and to varying degrees.
Our team of trained professionals are receiving wonderful progress in regards to helping children who have mild to moderate learning difficulties adjust to the demands of a regular classroom program.
