Foundation Stage


Pre-school, which comprises Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) begins at a tender age of 2 years. We are proud to announce that South City International School is beginning its first Toddlers Section named Little Explorers. At this level, the children will be introduced to a more structured day with stimulating activities, group interactions etc. Children at this age will start developing independence and learn through their senses.

The curriculum and activities which are in line with the Montessori method are designed to help the child to build social, emotional, language, cognitive and physical skills. Besides, the child will be encouraged to learn, grow and discover as per his developmental milestone!
