The KG. Department in FIPS provides high-quality structured education for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 5 so that they are able to develop in a happy and caring environment. They are encouraged to progress to the best of their ability, and at their own personal rate, establishing basic learning patterns for their future years. The KG classes provide a relaxed atmosphere, enabling parents to leave their children in the care of qualified and experienced staff with complete peace of mind. Parents can be sure that their child will be encouraged to become confident amongst other children, and will learn the vital social skills necessary for their future school life.
We work in close partnership with parents to ensure that all our children feel secure in a comfortable and stimulating environment. Parents are encouraged to discuss their children’s development and progress on a regular basis. The approach we use has very close ties to the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.

The underpinning philosophy of the Kindergarten is that each child is an individual and will develop at their own pace. We aim to further the children’s development according to their individual needs.
