Petits parents have the benefit of logging into our free parent communication app.
This keeps you in touch with your child throughout the day. You will receive pictures and videos of your child’s daily activities, see logs of every diaper change and receive updates of all meals consumed and how much they ate.
Our unique app enhances our parent partnership with daily updates, instant messaging, and automatic reminders and notifications.
Our Library is set to be a wonderful zone full of a wide selection of over 500 books ranging from different titles, themes, sizes, colours and topics. Our creative beautiful and inviting setting gives our children the perfect surrounding to fall in love with the skill of reading.
Excellent reading habits begin in the early years. Introducing children to literature in nursery supports primary school readiness, promotes early literacy and supports a love of language and reading. Our library will develop critical thinking skills and enhance creative and social development.
Our provision of educational books in our library promotes early literacy skills. Alphabet books help our children learn the names of the letters and the sounds that each letter represents. Our counting books help children learn how to count and to recognize numbers. Our poetry and rhyming books help to teach our children phonological awareness. We stock our library with oversized books as a tool to teach our children how to handle books and to point out letters, words and other features of the books.
Our ultra-modern computer lab consists of a variety of computers suitable for our toddlers’ little fingers. We teach our children the basics of how to operate a computer in this new age of progressive technology.
During our IT sessions children will support their numeracy, literacy and understanding the world through learning programs especially designed to allow children to match, copy, trace, click, pair and touch all on the computer.
Our unique interactive touch screen table allows multiple users at one time. It has several inbuilt learning activities to further support early learning.
Our specially designed dedicated Practical Life Suite connects the school with the kind of activities the children may see at home and are specially designed to help develop fine and gross motor skills, pre-writing and pre-reading skills, sequencing and memorization of steps, and satisfy the developmental needs of the children.
Activities such as preparing a snack, learning how to button and tie their shoes, sweeping and cleaning up, foster confidence, independence, and responsibility.
All of the activities in Practical Life are designed to appeal to the youngest children, especially, in order to give them the foundation they need to thrive, grow and become independent.
Our children will experience washing up, doing the laundry, setting the table hoovering, ironing, loading the dishwasher and much more.
Coming soon September 2019!
Woodwork is the most ideal way of supporting children to work in their ‘zone of proximal development’. What children can do and know is always being extended by the open-nature of woodworking requiring children to be problem-solvers. They often model what they see others doing and with guidance children get tremendous pleasure from being able to master new skills and achieve what they could not do previously.
Woodworking provides an excellent play situation for children to engage in problem-solving – an important skill for children to develop from an early age for their future. Children will also be developing eye-hand coordination, their spatial awareness, their sense of precision, and understanding how to use potentially dangerous tools safely.
Our specially created woodwork zone is the ideal practical life set up for further hands-on learning.
Coming soon September 2019!
Our wonderful outdoor garden is specially designed to support our children’s physical development. We have climbing, swinging, jumping, riding, driving, balancing and digging equipment all to develop our children’s gross motor skills.
Our garden is shaded by canopies and has outdoor fans fixed to protect the children from the strong sun rays allowing them to spend more hours outside.
Our natural planting area leaves space for children to plant, grow, nurture and learn about how fruits, vegetables, plants, and flowers grow. A wonderful learning area supporting discovery and further enhancing their understanding of the world.
Water Play provides hours of rich and valuable early childhood experiences to develop children’s creativity and imagination.
We acknowledge that the environment is a teacher. Water play is both enjoyable and educational. It helps children develop eye-hand coordination and math and science concepts. It also enhances social skills and encourages cooperation.
Water Play gives many opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills across age ranges. Children will increase their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through actions like pouring, squirting, scrubbing, stirring and squeezing.
It’s an amazing sensory experience introducing them to textures (slippy, slimy…) and temperatures.
Water play allows children to explore a substance and make discoveries about it.
Observing a branch or paper float or sink will teach them, in a very practical way, how and why things happen. But above all, it encourages them to use their imagination, develops creative thinking which plays an important role in problem-solving.
Water play also supports language development. It sparks imaginative discussions when we ask the children to describe what they are doing.
Our children are introduced to a number of new words while having fun with water and having conversations about it! Basin, Damp, Depth, Drain, Flow, Drenched, Drizzle, Sieve…</P
Water Play builds the foundation for understanding various scientific concepts. We even use water play to teach basic mathematics. It will introduce children to terms such as Full, Empty, Half, Less. We measure, compare volumes and observe motion, we count the rocks which we place in the basin and notice the flow change as we move them. All these concepts are part of the EYFS Curriculum, what a fun and natural way to learn and explore!
Our amazing outdoor water zone supports all of these concepts of learning.
Coming soon September 2019!
Happy Parents say
Our son Hugo (4) came to Ghana without any knowledge of the English language, let alone about the country. Through Petits Scholars he found friends from over the whole world, learned to speak with them and celebrated wonderful festivities like Christmas and Independence Day. The School and its staff is very professional and communication is transparent. Hugo’s teachers (his ‘aunties’) dedicate themselves in teaching the basic academics, are caring and teach the children about the world and respecting one another. And last but not least: Hugo loves the Taekwando lessons!
Mr. and Mrs. Tiddens, Preschool Parents,
Our daughter has attended Petits Scholars for two years and it has consistently been a wonderful experience. We have felt confident as parents in knowing that Ava is being nurtured, loved, and cared for, as well as challenged, supported and inspired to learn and grow. Her development since attending Petits Scholars has been fantastic. It has been obvious for us to see the positive impact the school has had in her development, not only academically but also socially and emotionally. The holistic family approach embraced by the principle is tangible and we have felt very included as parents. I could not recommend Petits Scholars more highly!
Mr. and Mrs. Tamaklo, Tweenie Scholars Parents,
We are very happy to have chosen Petits Scholars International School for our son. It has been an awesome journey and one of the best things we experienced since coming to Ghana. The educators are highly professional and it is amazing how they nurture the children through their well planned and structured activities to meet and surpass the parent’s expectations. Our 4 year old can read! His educational foundation is terrific and he has a very good understanding of the world. We have watched him develop leadership skills and grow his confidence to an appreciable level! I appreciate all the educators at the school for this. All services offered at the school were beneficial to our child and we will definitely always recommend Petits Scholars International School.
Mr. and Mrs. Macjohnson Odey II, Reception Parents,
One of my top most priorities as a mum is raising confident and well adjusted kids. Petits Scholars fulfilled this beyond expectations as I noticed a significant improvement when we switched to them. The teacher to child ratio ensures hands on care and attention to detail. Cleanliness is top notch and I send my kids off to school daily assured that they will be well catered for.
