Welcome at Buddies Kindergarten
A warm, international and friendly atmosphere where children can play and learn. Learning at Buddies is not an imposed duty, but something that occurs naturally through the various activities. Some objectives, or main themes have been outlined for the different age-groups, but the actual learning process is the result of an interaction between the children and the teachers, with both contributing ideas and negotiating on decisions. Thanks to this transformational curriculum method and the international environment, not only are the children encouraged to share their ideas, but also to find compromises for social interaction and intercultural relations.
The Kindergarten Program runs from 8.30 a.m. to 6.00 pm.
A child applying to the Pre-kinder and kinder program should be in the age range of 2.5 to 5.5 years.
The classes are formed by children in the same age range:
REDS: ages 2.5 to 3.5 years;
GREENS: ages 3.5 to 4.5 years;
YELLOWS: ages 4.5 to 5.5 years
A policy of open enrolment allow students to enrol at Buddies any time during the year. Due to the growing requests, however, we advise that you enrol your child a year in advance.
