Elves and Fairies
Nursery of our English kindergarten – Elves and Fairies – is a place, where children discover their creativity and their first concepts of numeracy and literacy. Their day is a magic trip through the world accompanied by song and dance, learning about the world, games and crafts. During this trip they are happy to play with numbers and shapes, letters and sounds. Every week our timetable includes
- motor skills and handwriting
- music and dance
- physical activity
- drama& role play
Our specially designed curriculum allows the children to submerge in learning through crafts and other meaningful activities, developing their creativity and enriching their knowledge. Over this year they also complete our literacy program – gain awareness of sounds and phonemes and learn to recognize and trace letters, as well as numeracy program – learning numbers, amounts, and shapes.
Our special days are MAGIC CASTLE holidays which happen every month and can be national holidays of a particular country, like Diwali or Hanukkah, or our own magic holidays, like a Spanish Day or Vive la France!
All our children also enjoy field trips to a museum, a theatre, an exhibition, a park or a zoo every month – Moscow is full of interesting places to visit!
