In the Early Years Stage, all children are provided with teaching and learning experiences that address the whole child: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication (including language and literacy); Problem solving, Reasoning and Numeracy; Knowledge and Understanding of the World; Physical Development; and Creative Development. Arabic is introduced for all students in Pre KG, KG1 and continues in KG2, before it becomes a compulsory subject in elementary and secondary school.

The Early Years team at BAKIS provides an innovative and stimulating inquiry-based learning environment to help our students to flourish. We believe that every child is a unique individual who brings a wealth of ideas, opportunities and deep curiosity to our school about the world.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in both Pre-KG and KG1 and have a phonics and mathematics programs. Formal teaching of reading and writing does not take place until KG2, but if studentsare showing signs of readiness, they will have every opportunity to learn these skills.

KG2 follows the California Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten in English Language Arts and Mathematics. We also follow the Next Generation Science Standards and provide hands on science investigations to engage students in their exploration of science.

Our online reading and literacy platforms and rotational I-pads enrich the learning experience and integrate technology through active learning.

Our Kindergarten students participate in school wide activities through shared projects with the older children, school-wide initiatives and whole school assemblies. Our indoor soft playing area and outdoor tri-cycling park and playground area are purpose built to stimulate the sensory learning needs of our students.
