Short Description

This program focuses on determining the different skills, that teachers should help KG children gain and develop, including language skills (whether verbal and expression), hygiene skills, as well as physical, motor, social, affective, and sensory skills. Practical examples on each of these skills will be presented as suggested by teachers who will then compare them with the skills of KG children. The program also deals with a set of values which KG children should acquire by using activities and situations that would allow them to practice these values such as religious, national, social, ethical and artistic skills.
