Fostering Emotional Intelligence

Preschool Day Schedule
Morning Circle
During our morning circle gatherings, we foster a sense of community and interaction within the group. Children greet each other, sing songs, discuss the weather, review the calendar, and take on daily responsibilities.
Evening Circle
In our evening circle sessions, children reflect on their day, share discoveries, and express their impressions. These gatherings promote group communication and allow children to highlight their favourite moments.
Classroom Activities
Our classes cover fundamental subjects such as mathematics, science, language, natural sciences, and social skills development through play. From an early age, children learn to read, write, and count, integrating fine motor skills with language acquisition. We utilize Montessori materials and the Jolly Phonics program to enhance their learning experience.
Each academic subject is integrated into one of four thematic units that span two months. This approach aids students in comprehending and internalizing information, fostering holistic development.
Creative Classes
Children refine their fine motor skills through diverse learning techniques, unleash their imagination, and explore their creativity. They also familiarize themselves with renowned artists and experiment with various artistic styles.
Language Learning
At Exupery Preschool, language development plays a significant role in children's overall growth, with their mother tongue as the foundation for knowledge acquisition. Our experienced teachers prioritize reinforcing each child's native language, assisting them in expanding vocabulary, constructing sentences accurately, refining grammar, and honing reading and writing abilities.
In our older groups, children also explore an additional foreign language of their choice, such as French or Latvian (if not their native tongue). Language learning is approached through interactive methods, where integrating fairy tales into lessons creates an immersive and captivating learning environment, encouraging active participation in language acquisition.
Library Sessions
Within our school, we boast two libraries housing over 20,000 books in English, French, Latvian, and Russian languages. Our preschool students benefit from group reading sessions conducted in these libraries. Through these engaging classes, students enhance their literacy skills and develop valuable social skills and cognitive abilities.
Sports
Engaging in sports at an early age holds significant importance. It enhances children's physical well-being, fosters coordination, instils self-discipline, and boosts concentration. Our approach to nurturing each child's holistic growth includes morning exercises, indoor and outdoor games, and sports events, all contributing to their overall development.
Extracurricular activities
In the afternoon, we provide our students with diverse extracurricular options, including chess, art classes, ballet, and music lessons.
Cooking in Exupery Preschool
At our school, we host cooking activities for various age groups bi-weekly. These sessions offer invaluable learning opportunities, teaching children essential skills such as teamwork, decision-making, nutrition, and healthy eating habits. Moreover, cooking fosters interdisciplinary learning, incorporating elements of science, language, math, and creativity, while providing practical knowledge in food preparation.

Parents naturally prioritize their child's diet and its organization in Preschool. Such focus on food quality is justified, as healthy and varied meals are essential for proper physical and mental development.

At our Preschool, we provide our students with four meals daily: breakfast, lunch, fruit snack, and afternoon snack. Chefs of the renowned 36.
