For Parents

1Why should I put my child in your preschool?

We at Atelier International understand the importance of the learning outcomes, environment and curriculum in the formative years of a preschooler. The experience of our leadership team over the past years of being in the ECE industry only reinforces us to focus on these key areas. Our strong inclination and passion to add value to the child’s early learning years sets us apart from other preschools. At Atelier International preschool we teach individuals; enriching the mind one child at a time.

2How does a typical day look like in your preschool?

Each day is planned to engage children in activities that have a perfect balance of individual and group activities, outdoor and indoor activities, active and quiet time, free and guided activities. Learning engagements that foster holistic development are part of our day. We empower children with life skills in an ideal and nurturing environment.

Our Preschool begins at age 2 years for the PreNursery Program and goes through Kindergarten2 for ages up to 6years.

4Should my child be toilet trained?

We prefer that children enter preschool toilet trained. If your child is not toilet trained, please speak with his/her teacher prior to the first day at school. We will be happy to support your efforts when you feel your child is ready for this developmental step. He/She would continue to wear a diaper until he/she is fully trained. This is essential to help maintain hygiene routines at our school. Our staff is well trained to follow the diaper change procedures.

10Are parents allowed to be in classrooms?

Having parent’s visit our classrooms creates a community where children can experience interactions with other adults. We welcome the same and would love for you to volunteer for sessions. However these sessions must be scheduled after seeking prior permission from the teacher.

11How do you handle the settling period for a child?

Most children settle well into the preschool routine within a week or two. However if your child’s teacher feels that the duration of preschool hours can initially be kept short, she would inform you accordingly.

12How do you handle the separation anxiety in children?

We encourage you to talk and prepare your child before the session begins. You may visit the center as often as possible to build your child’s confidence before their first day of school. Our aim is to have happy, secure children and families who have developed a relationship of trust with the school. We will work closely with parents to establish a positive bond of trust to ensure each child and their families feel secure that Atelier International preschool is a great place to be!

13How will you ensure my child is Grade 1 ready?

Our way of teaching, by having the students explore and learn, prepares them for success in Kindergarten and beyond. They will build the foundation for literacy, math, science, creative, motor and social skills they will need to do well in later schooling. The difference is in the approach that is adopted in making the learning journey enjoyable and fun.
