Paragon ISC Kindergarten offers Australian Early Years Learning Framework as a baseline for an academic and holistic curriculum. We understand that play is a crucial part of students’ learning and development. Opportunities that encourage students to become actively involved, have fun, and enjoy the process of learning, will guarantee a positive and strong foundation for all future learning. Your child will experience varied learning concepts.
We endeavor to meet each child’s physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs. Each of the areas of learning is enhanced by a combination of child-initiated activities, as well as well-structured activities that your child can relate to.
Students spend the majority of their time with their Class Teacher and Teaching Assistant, but they may also be taught by different teachers for certain subjects. There are 7 areas of learning in the Early Years Framework:
“Belonging, being, and becoming are integral parts of identity.”
BELONGING Experiencing belonging – It is an essential part of human existence to know where and with whom you belong. Children belong first to their families, to their cultural groups, to their neighborhoods, and to their communities as a whole. A sense of belonging recognizes children’s interdependence and the importance of relationships in defining their identities during early childhood and throughout their lives. Belonging is central to being and becoming in that it shapes who children are and who they can become.
BEING Childhood is a time to be, to seek, and make meaning of the world. Children are at a time when they are discovering the world and making sense of it. Being acknowledges the importance of the here and now in their lives. The early childhood years are not simply about preparing for the future, but also about navigating everyday challenges. The early childhood years are not just about preparing for the future, but also about the present.
BECOMING Children’s identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills, and relationships change during childhood.As young children learn and grow, they undergo rapid and significant changes. Becoming emphasizes learning to participate fully and actively in society as that occurs in the early years.
The Australian Early Years Learning Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning Outcomes:
There are many aspects to children’s learning that are dynamic, complex, and holistic. Physical, social, emotional, personal, spiritual, creative, cognitive, and linguistic aspects of children’s learning are intricately intertwined.
Play is a context for learning that: allows for the expression of personality and uniqueness, enhances dispositions such as curiosity and creativity, enables children to make connections between prior experiences and new learning, assists children to develop relationships and concepts, and stimulates a sense of wellbeing.
Teaching STEM to Early Learners
Introducing STEM concepts to young learners is not difficult, since they are perfectly adapted for learning STEM concepts, and it is easy to inspire their innate curiosity about the living world by involving them in the teaching process. By simply allowing them to investigate, by encouraging them to ask questions about the real world, you are engaging children in STEM.
Extra-curricular activities are designed to suit a holistic approach, considering children’s physical, personal, social, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing as well as cognitive aspects of learning. We create activities to enhance the connections between children, families, and communities and value the reciprocal relationships and partnerships for learning. Our activities are embedded in our academic curriculum to support our School’s mission and vision.
Also, we focus on connections to the natural world teaching children to understand and respect the natural environment and the interdependence between people, plants, animals, and the land.
Paragon ISC offers various clubs to students. It could be academic or interest clubs. Here is the list of the clubs provided in Paragon ISC Kindergarten Campus:
The core of our values is internationalism, which we believe is crucial to cultivating open-mindedness, tolerance, and growing global citizens.
Cross-campus celebrated festivals:
– Khmer New Year
– Chinese New year
– Pchum Ben
– Water Festival etc.
Throughout the school year, homeroom teachers guide students by supporting and inspiring them in their academics and character development. They serve as a vital link between parents and students to address any concerns regarding academics, social well-being, and administrative matters.
Parents will receive invitations to Parent Telegram Groups and contact them for any request.
SIS APP – Student Information System
The ParagonISC APP has been developed as a downloadable application for both Android and IOS platforms. Parents and students are provided with usernames that enable them to:
Teachers and parents gather twice a year for Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTCs) in order to discuss student achievements and inform parents about school programs and events. This provides a forum for teachers, parents, and, at times, students to discuss academics and social development.
During PTCs, parents have the opportunity to ask questions and get clarity over any concerns or queries they may have about their child’s education or the school’s administrative process.
It’s a time as well for teachers to share relevant information about the student and calibrate expectations. A Parent-Teacher Conference is one of many ways that students, parents, and schools are committed to the success and welfare of their students.
Safety and Security
We place the safety and security of our students at the forefront of everything we do. All of our students and staff are regularly trained so that they are well prepared and can respond accordingly to any dangerous situations. Fire and lockdown drills are conducted every term to ensure that our students and staff are prepared to respond to emergencies.
Additionally, Paragon ISC has contracted with a private security company for security guards to ensure the safety of the school environment. The security guards monitor who enters and leaves the school daily, as well as monitor security camera footage.
Students who have lost their items should report to the Secondary Campus Manager for assistance in the recovery of the lost item.
For transportation to and from the School Campus, Paragon ISC coordinates for the services of medium-sized passenger buses. The school buses (and their drivers) are privately contracted by Paragon ISC. The school coordinates and supervises the buses for the convenience of Paragon ISC families. Students are fetched from home and picked to the school before lessons start. The bus fee depends on the location of the student and can be made term based or in a full form payment.
