CIS opens latest preschool in Olympia City

CIS’s Olympia City Preschool campus is now open and accepting registrations for the 2019-2020 school year (starting August 26) with tuition discounts! CIS preschools emphasise the importance of offering world-recognised curriculum to children in Phnom Penh as early as 18 months old and focuses on developing the ‘whole child’ socially, emotionally and physically— attributing to the development of their soft skills at a young age.

Children obtain literacy and communication skills through play-based learning and are encouraged to think logically and critically while playing and learning.

CIS preschools follow a Canadian curriculum using the Alberta (Canadian) document, “Play, Participation and Possibilities: An Early Learning Framework for Alberta”. It is widely used in many schools that feed into an inquiry-based International Baccalaureate school.

This document was written for the education of young children in one of the most prestigious provinces in Canada and is based on thorough, current, educational and scientific brain research on how young children learn best.

For students at this age, play is the key means of early learning as it encourages children’s curiosity and eagerness to learn.

The goals and outcomes are clearly defined, but the pathway to reach those goals may vary for each and every child.

CIS preschools are Reggio Emilia inspired and require teachers to understand the approach and framework of the Reggio Emilia philosophy, while ensuring it fits within the Cambodian setting.

Reggio Emilia is a philosophy with an inspiring approach to early childhood education as it values and respects a child as a strong, resilient, independent learner, capable of creating their own knowledge and understanding. Children are encouraged to investigate, discover and explore in a supportive and rich environment, where the curriculum emerges while following the children’s interests and curiosity.

The well-trained and western- educated teachers at CIS design classrooms and activities to facilitate free and structured play. All of their teachers have degrees or diplomas, and experience in Early Childhood Education.

The activities taught in class provide children with useful vocabulary needed for everyday interactions, learning, exploring, and self-expression. Business leaders are now saying the future successes of our children lie in the ‘soft skills’ learned from a very young age.
