YBM GATE has a very different curriculum and philosophy from other English kindergartens. Our goal for each child is to provide the best educational environment. In this environment, gifted children can explore their questions about this world of wonder. Every day they are given opportunities to test and expand their unlimited potential and intelligence within GATE’s specially tailored content.
We use English as a communication tool, rather than a subject to master. Students at YBM GATE develop their English ability, while simultaneously developing their knowledge in every topic by participating in our in-depth, hands-on, content-based classes: Theme, Math, Science, Creativity, Logical Thinking Skills, Leadership, Musical Theater, Art and more! Due to this unique educational approach, prior English exposure and a certain level of English proficiency is required.
With lots of fun, creative topics and methods, YBM GATE will maximize children’s interest in target knowledge, causing students ability and potential to explode! Students will participate in many individual as well as group projects, debates, experiments and presentations for public speaking experience. All of these amazing experiences will help the children excel in their learning process and to reach their potential.
GATE has a very individualized program for each child and the evaluation of each child does not happen instantly. Through observation and assessment in every subject, children are analyzed and evaluated with the purposes of finding the child’s deepest interests, as well as discovering what are her or his strengths and weaknesses. By using this method of assessment, we can offer the best individualized assistance to students, so each of them can continually improve and grow.
Throughout this process, YBM GATE communicates with parents all the time through various communication channels. GATE will share everything with parents, from social issues, to academic performance, to daily stories about your child. Official progress reports in each subject, accompanied by teacher comments will also be presented each semester. There will also be a chance for parent teacher conferences to discuss each child.
