Our very youngest learners learn with Small Stars. In addition to teaching English skills this course takes a ‘whole child approach’ with emphasis on developing a child’s motor, social and cognitive skills.
These are the lesson stages for each Small Stars class:
We provide teachers and students with an array of teaching and course materials to make life inside and outside the classroom efficient and stimulating.
Each class is co-taught by both an International Teacher and a Local Teacher. Both teachers cover alternate lessons each week.
In addition to our teachers, we also have a team of Progress Advisors in each school who act as an intermediary link between teacher, students and parents. This is all overseen by the Director of Studies.
Each centre has a DOS, using their extensive teaching and managerial experience to mentor, train and take care of our teachers.
Our older children learn through our High Flyer series which aims to develop English skills in communication and build confidence and a love of English.
Videos and characters produced to a network standard by professional cartoon-makers ensure that students will be genuinely entertained and engaged.
All stories are rooted in the language prescribed by the syllabus, so that all videos are of academic worth. Language games tie characters, videos and language content together in order to allow students to practice the language they learned and watched in a fun, engaging and interactive way.
