There are one or two classes in Nursery, depending on need. Please see below for our expectations for the year ahead and some information about our curriculum.
The Nursery program follows the International School of Lusaka's Mission Statement and Philosophy. Children develop self awareness and become confident and independent. Play is an important aspect of Nursery and we aim to provide an attractive environment that will stimulate learning. Children are given the opportunity to investigate and experiment at their own pace and to their own interests. School is seen as an extension of home and it makes use of the cultural diversity present in the classroom as the basis for recognizing the values of each and every culture represented.
As adopted from the School Curriculum Assessment Association, "Nursery Educational Desirable Outcomes for Childrens' Learning", the desirable outcomes are goals for a child's learning before they enter formal education. The goals emphasize early literacy, numeracy and the development of personal and social skills and contribute to a child’s knowledge, understanding and skill sets. Presented as 6 areas of learning, they provide a foundation for later learning.
