We at The American Preschool understand that the early years in a child's life are the most crucial. In our EduPlay programs we strike a balance between autonomy and structure in our approach to education. We play, we laugh, we talk and we learn.
A physical environment conducive to growth.
A structure and routines for the child's day.
A supportive environment for interpersonal growth.
A community in which parenting skills can be perfected.
Learning takes place in the interaction between the individual and the environment.
We believe that it is in the early years of development that children form who they are as individuals. It is important to provide them with an emotionally and physically safe environment, which nurtures and supports the development of their physical, social, emotional, creative and cognitive skills.
We believe that parents and educators working together as a team, create a structured and predictable environment which is emotionally and physically safe for children. In this environment children are free to discover how things work, learn to do things for themselves and realize that they have good ideas. Our singular focus is on supporting the child’s overall development in the most loving, nurturing and motivating manner possible. We offer our children experiences that will challenge them to grow intellectually socially, emotionally, creatively and physically.
Our goal is to encourage every child to see themselves as individuals who are confident, have ideas, are able to make decisions and be responsible for their actions and feelings, who in turn will grow up to be happy, self assured individuals.
Every child carries the seed of limitless potential. The journey towards fulfilling this potential begins at infancy with nurturing a child's attachment and sense of security. This forms the foundation of emotional wellness that will later blossom into confident, resilient & successful self leaders.
This focus on developing attachment and security underlies what we do at the Discovery Center.
The Learning Center is a highly supportive and motivating environment that focuses on encouraging children to develop initiative, independence and motivation for life long learning and to become successful self leaders.
At the Learning Center we focus on attaining social / life skills, physical skills, creative skills, language development and academic skills.
As a parent you always want the best for your children. In choosing to send our children to the American Preschool we know we made the correct decision.
The American Preschool Colombo is a unique mix of several important ingredients which make it for me the ideal school for little, open-minded people with an international or local background:
My children have been at the school since 2007 and we are exceptionally happy with our choice. We are particularly pleased with the level of development, interaction and different experiences the school has provided for them.
