Our aim at Vienna English Preschool is to provide a secure, stimulating and creative environment in which learning is fun. In our kindergarten the children take their first steps on a learning journey that will continue as they progress through school and beyond. At this crucial early stage in their development, children are full of curiosity about the world. It is our job to harness their natural enthusiasm for learning, by offering exciting and stimulating activities that respond to the children’s emerging interests as well as their development needs.
Our enthusiastic and dedicated teachers plan a diverse range of activities in and out of the classroom, to help the children achieve goals in all the key areas of learning and development: Personal, Social and Emotional development; Communication, Language and Literacy; Numeracy, Physical development, Creative and Expressive Arts and Understanding the World.
The curriculum is delivered through a series of monthly ‘topics’ covering a wide range of subjects, which provide a focus for the children’s play and learning activities during that period.
Adult-led activities are balanced with opportunities for children to learn through self-directed play and first-hand experience. Young children learn best when they are “doing” – exploring, discovering, experiencing and creating things for themselves – with the support and guidance of adults.
