Zahrat Al-Sahraa International School


Our Kindergarten program is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 6. Through their first years of school children form the essential basics for a strong foundation that helps them attain their full potential. We, at ZSIS, focus principally on the development, by giving full and proper attention to the different aspects of development

  • Motor skills
  • Communication/ Language skills
  • Cognitive development
  • Social/ Emotional development

Each child's progress is closely monitored and assessed in each of these fields to ensure positive growth and healthy development. Reading, writing, mathematics, and science are basic parts of our Kindergarten curriculum which are supported by a stimulating environment that enhances every child's learning abilities.

In ZSIS, we strongly believe that children learn best through fun and play. Therefore, activities are in abundant and form an integral part of the curriculum.

The various types of activities are designed to promote specific abilities and can be generally summarized as follows

  • Abstract Intelligence Development
  • Confidence Building
  • General Awareness
  • Situation Management

By the end of the Kindergarten stage, children would have learnt all the basic skills that would prepare them to go on to the next level, the Upper-elementary grades. The basic point here is our ability to help the child pass through a smooth transition from one grade level to another avoiding any educational or developmental gap that could cause an unhealthy settlement.
