Kinder 1-3 Curriculum

Philosophy

 

Ubon Adventist International Mission School kindergarten offers a transitional experience that extends the home and the early childhood program that considers the developmental stages if children as well as their individual differences.

 

Children are God’s gift to the human family, a continuing evidence of His love. They are created in His image, unique and endowed with the hope to think, to learn, and to choose.

 

The child’s image is form by the significant people in his life. Nurturing adult in the kindergarten program provide a safe and creative environment away from home, which enhances a positive self-concept in each child. When a child experiences success in this type of environment, there is a joy in learning.

 

Ubon Adventist International Mission School believes that true education is the harmonious development of the whole being. Therefore the areas of spiritual, cognitive, physical, social and emotional development become an integral part of the learning environment in the early nurturing of the young children.

 

Learning is a complex process that results from the interaction of the children with their environment. This interaction includes thinking, doing, modelling and speaking. Learning is optimal when the environment provides children with the opportunity to be engaged in these activities.

 

The goal of Ubon Adventist International Mission School is too cooperate with the Devine purpose of imparting to young children the knowledge of God and molding their character in the harmony with His. We also believe that each student grow differently. Therefore it will be more efficient to work according to their level. Considering this uniqueness, our department has chosen the Developmental Curriculum Program which is integrated with American Curriculum in order to reach these goals and cater the needs of each student in our school.
