Baby Steps: A Gymboree Program
Girls Students Enjoying an Event
After they begin to walk, at approximately 16 months, children join their toddler community where basic motor coordination, independence and language development are cultivated and individual personalities are respected.Rather than a classroom, the Gymboree classes are a nurturing social community where very young children experience their first contact with other children and learn to participate in a cooperative group.Enthusiastic and trained instructors engage students in innovative and developmentally appropriate exercises utilizing balance beams, rings, trampolines, sports skills stations, puppets and props. This is an active adult participation class and a parent must be present with each participating child. This is a wonderful way for mothers to spend quality time with their toddlers!Their program pairs 45 minutes of enriching classroom activities including art, music, interactive story time and exploration of educational learning stations with 45 minutes of our toddler gymnastic curriculum.

Grade 8 Students
An Event of The School
The Grade 8 students appear for the Cambridge Checkpoint Exams for Science, Math and English. These exams are diagnostic tests which are marked by CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) and provide analysis of the students’ strengths and weaknesses in these core subjects. They also serve as an international certification recognizing that the student is at par with international standards for secondary education.
Being a Cambridge Associate School
Cambridge International Examinations prepares school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They are part of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge. The international qualifications are recognized by the world’s best universities and employers, giving students a wide range of options in their education and career.
Their students join a community of learners from more than 10000 schools in over 160 countries. The programmes and qualifications have been created for students worldwide but there is plenty of space for local content too. Distance does not create a barrier between Cambridge learners around the world. Online communities bring schools and learners together to discuss their projects and activities. By developing a global outlook in Cambridge learners, we aim to equip them for success in the fast-changing modern world.
First Steps is a Cambridge affiliate school and offers a dynamic curriculum designed and created by Cambridge University for Primary school education.
Cambridge Primary is a great place to start the learning journey. It enables learners to build their knowledge and skills progressively, through each year of the programme. It is an excellent preparation for Cambridge Secondary 1, and for progression to other educational systems. A number of progression tests are built into the Cambridge Primary programme, which enable teachers to assess your child’s progress at each stage. Short progression tests are a valuable way for the parents and the school to understand a child’s strengths, and identify areas where more help is required.
Secure and Encouraging Environment
The elementary school provides a secure and encouraging environment to foster students' holistic academic development. The programme focuses on key literacy and numeracy skills, whilst building self-esteem and confidence, continuing with the skills acquired in preschool.
Rich Integrated Co-Curriculum Programme

Specialist teachers instruct the children in art and design as well as in an extensive performing arts programme which includes the production of an annual play.
