The new Preschool Curriculum Framework recognizes the importance of preschool education for the development of the skills necessary for life-long learning, such as self-confidence, openness, curiosity, perseverance, resilience and creativity.
Symbolically entitled "Years of Ascent", the curriculum is designed through a participatory approach, in an inspiring and stimulating environment for the child where he or she can freely explore, play, reflect, work with others and get to know the world around them.
