For the Parents
Welcome to St. Lawrence International Preschool
For the past three years, St. Lawrence has been building its reputation for providing superior international schooling to children of pre primary school age. I am delighted to announce that we are now able to give young children the opportunity to experience that similar flavor of education. Our primary school provides a secure, caring environment in which individuals are nurtured in their learning. We invite you to take a closer look.

At St. Lawrence, our Primary Classrooms provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment that will help our students develop an excellent foundation for creative learning. Our primary Classrooms are equipped with authentic materials which will enhance our student's experience at St. Lawrence International School, Goals specific to the primary Classroom are:
Developing a positive attitude toward school
Most of the learning activities are individualized: i.e., each child engages in a learning task that particularly appeals to him…because he finds the activities geared to his needs and level of readiness. Consequently, he works at his own rate, repeating the task as often as he likes, thus experiencing a series of successful achievement. In this manner, he build a positive attitude toward learning itself.
Helping each child develop self confidence
Tasks are designed so that each new step is built upon what the child has already mastered, thus removing the negative experience of frequent failure. A carefully planned series of successes builds upon inner confidence in the child assuring him that he can learn by himself. These confidence building activities likewise contribute to the child’s healthy emotional development.
Assisting each child in building a habit of concentration
Effective learning presupposes the ability to listen carefully and to attend to what is said or demonstrated. Through a series of absorbing experiences, the child forms habits of extended attention, thus increasing his ability to concentrate. Fostering an abiding curiosity In a rapidly changing society, where we will all be students at some time in our lives. A deep, persistent and abiding curiosity is a prerequisite for creative learning. By providing the child with opportunities to discover qualities, dimensions and relationships amidst a rich variety of stimulating learning situations, curiosity is developed and an essential element in creative learning has been established.
Developing habits of initiative and persistence
By surrounding a child with appealing materials and learning activities geared to his inner needs, he becomes accustomed to engaging in activities on his own. Gradually, this results in a habit of initiative – an essential quality in leadership. “Ground rules” call for completing a task once begun and gradually results in a habit of persistence and perseverance for replacing materials after the task is accomplished. This “completion expectation” gradually results in a habit of persistence and perseverance.
Fostering inner security and sense of order in the child
Through a well ordered, enriched but simplified environment, the child’s need for order and security is intensely satisfied. This is noticed in the calming effect the environment has on the child. Since every item in the St. Lawrence classroom has a place and the ground rules call for everything in its place, the child’s inner need for order is directly satisfied.
