Preschool - Kindergarten

A heartfelt approach to early education!

We provide a heartwarming, and safe landing into your child's home away from home!

Our youngest students are welcomed from 2.5 years old. We offer full English immersion with fun-filled activities to help them learn and make lots of little friends!

The Nursery offers a warm and loving atmosphere, providing a safe and stimulating environment for children's first steps out of the nest. Our classrooms are spacious, and brightly decorated providing ample space for children to feel their autonomy while enjoying the group atmosphere. Students are encouraged to select and choose their own toys, puzzles and games allowing them to enjoy what they like most. 

We seek to develop our students personalities through social and emotional skills. We encourage the development of speech for effective communication and increase their awareness of the environment, both of other's boundaries and needs as well as expressing their own boundaries and needs. 

Our physical activities enhance motor skills and creative thinking. 

 

 

The transition to Nursery can be an emotional time for child and care givers. This is where we step in, through our experience we are here to guide you through the process of 'letting go'. 

In our experience, weening children from breastfeeding, and pacifiers, and providing them with the independence of their own bed prepares their minds, emotions and hearts for the important step of a classroom environment.  

We encourage you to begin potty-training at home and will support you at school as well. 

Whether you are looking to return to work, moving into our area or ready to increase your child's knowledge and social skills - AGAPELAND provides everything you and your child need for a soft landing!

We help our students build self-esteem by learning to say "I can do it myself!"

It's time for 3.5 - 4.5 year old children to develop fine motor skills and explore their independent life!  We create opportunities every day to help them build their confidence.

 

Our Caterpillars will be exploring the precise movements of their hands by learning to draw inside the lines, trace numbers and letters and cut accurately. They learn that they can use their hands to express their thoughts and ideas!

Our Kindergarten graduates are fully prepared for 1st Grade whether parents choose Greek, English or an International Primary School!

Butterflies are taught to be socially conscious and compassionate.  Social skills are an important part of our program. We teach respect for each others needs, wants and differences. Social skills prepare Butterflies for the real world. Butterflies learn to master dexterity and physical skills in our regular athletics and garden play! Butterflies often participate in the cooking of the school lunch. 

Our students are eager to read and have found their self confidence needed for the big step into primary education! 

A special groups are dedicated to both Greek and English Primary School Preparation.

Our 4.5 - 5.5 year old Butterflies are ready to soar! 

 

In their final school year at AGAPELAND, they will master their skills! They will strengthen their sense of identity utilizing the power of applied creativity in academics, social skills, art and problem solving! We encourage them to find their own voice!

 

The Butterflies are mature and independent thinkers!
