About EARLY YEARS Kindergarten, Pre-Reception, Reception
The Kindergarten is an integral part of The International School of Paphos.
Our aim is to provide a high-quality Early Years curriculum that will contribute positively to children’s learning and ensure a secure foundation for their future education.
It offers a safe and stimulating environment in order to enable each child to develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. We adopt a holistic, child-centred approach which promotes a positive self-image and love of learning.
The Kindergarten is housed in its own purpose-built facility that includes three classrooms for group activities and a large hall where children have opportunities to work and play.
The exciting outdoor area is designed to encourage imaginative play and has a good range of climbing apparatus, wheeled toys, a sand and water tray, small gardens, and a large, grassed area.
It is self-contained and fully secure. However, it is very much part of the main school and benefits from full use of the wider facilities of the main campus. These include the Library, IT Room, Media Room, Sports Centre, and Sports Fields. There may also be opportunities to use the swimming pool as part of the afternoon programme.
The Kindergarten caters for children aged two and a half up to, and including, children aged five. It ensures that they are well-prepared for a smooth transition to the Pre-Reception Class of the school or to the Greek Primary schools.
