The Independent Schools Foundation (ISF) was established in 2000 as a registered charitable organization to provide diversity in choice of education for local students. In 2003, the Foundation established The ISF Academy, which caters for students from Foundation Year to Grade 12.
The establishment of The ISF Pre-School in 2015 marks an important milestone for the ISF, extending its excellent educational services to the early years. The same vision and mission are shared throughout the Pre-School and the Academy, where the schools focus on the holistic development of young learners through experiential learning.
Using the Early Years Program of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) as a framework and the Foundation Year program requirement as an end goal, the Pre-School designs its unique bilingual, inquiry-based, balanced, integrated curriculum that captures young learners’ interest while challenging them at their own level. Values are taught and lived through incorporating the Eight Virtues + One and the IPC’s personal goals into our units of work and everyday school life, with a long-term goal to nurture global learners with a lifelong love of learning.
Authentic, developmentally appropriate learning experiences are carefully planned for each and every unit by our early years trained and experienced teaching team, to ensure our learners gain knowledge, skills and understanding in all key learning areas, including language, mathematics, science and technology, the arts, physical fitness and health, self and society.
Collaborative learning is also deeply valued at the Pre-School and we believe the diverse experiences and knowledge of our students, parents and staff will create a rich community of learners. We also believe in the importance of parental participation in the child’s early education as a means of enhancing the learning environment, and seek parents who are committed in their child’s learning. The Pre-School offers various opportunities for parent involvement and encourages parents to take part regularly.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to The ISF Pre-School.
