Our Preschool is open to international families residing in Beijing. As educators, we have been given the greatest opportunity to help unfold the possibilities and potential of all these students. We recognize that a child is more responsive to certain learning experiences at particular times or “sensitive periods”. Our school provides a comprehensive set of Montessori curriculum, extensive supplemental materials, formal music, PE, and Art education programs, conversational English, a well maintained outdoors and indoors play space. Our teachers have a deep understanding of child psychology, and developmental phases. Teachers observe, plan, monitor their progress and fulfill their needs. The children in the classroom respect themselves, others, and the environment as Montessori said, based on "freedom within limits". Children learn by repetition, at their own individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. Our children always receive lots of attention and loving care. Our classes cover their individual physical and mental health. We also provide a good environment that helps inspire children’s curiosity and help develop a sense of exploration, which in turn allows them to adapt to the environment.
In our work, we ensure that each child is approached individually without interrupting their chosen work cycles and with respect to its genuine needs and interests and with the well being of the group in mind. We partner with parents to provide the most positive learning and living experience for each child.
In order to provide international education for our students, our school will be based on the Montessori educational approach; as well we will also include the introduction of the PYP curriculum of International Education. The classes will carry out a Primary Years Programme (PYP), which focuses on the development of the whole child. It offers a framework that meets children's several needs: academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural. Through the learning of six subject areas driven by six transdisciplinary themes, children can become Inquirers, Thinkers, Communicators, Risk-takers, Knowledgeable, Principled, Caring, Open-minded, Well-balanced and Reflective.
It aims to maximize the achievements of its students through the school culture, curriculum and in personal and social fields. Drawing on the rich variety of cultures represented at the school, CISB aims to develop in each student a global outlook, which seeks to understand and appreciate the attitudes and values of others.
