Preschool Education Program
The importance of preschool education is well documented. Children need this early intervention to help them develop and be ready to start school. AIL’s preschool program (PEP) provides hundreds of children with foundation education as well as learning about health, social interaction and core values.
The interactive, student-centered teaching in the PEPs serves as a model of quality early childhood education in Afghanistan.PEP offers a comprehensive curriculum that caters to the age and learning needs of each child. Children are categorized into different classes based on their age from nursery to class six. The students study a wide variety of subjects—Dari, English, math, sports, health, reading, writing, and science. Students participate in group discussions that help them develop critical thinking skills, formulate and share opinions, and listen to others.
