Nursery - Junior PreKindergarten (ages 2½ to 3)

The curriculum is divided in the following areas:

  • Personal, Emotional and Social Growth
  • Language Development
  • Numeracy
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Music
  • Arts & Crafts
  • P.E.

Through a variety of themes such as: Colors, Family and Me, Nutrition, Four Seasons, Mini Beasts, Farm Animals etc, the Nursery and Junior Pre-Kindergarten program focuses on language development.

Through discussions, stories, songs and role-play the children are encouraged to build up their knowledge of the English language. Through games and hands-on activities the children explore early Math and Science concepts. Daily Arts and Crafts enhance the development of their fine motor skills as well as their creativity.

Moreover, through Physical Education and engagement in non-competitive games, the children continuously develop their gross motor skills, their sense of spatial awareness and eye-hand coordination.


At Nursery & Junior Pre-K, our primary aim is to provide a safe and secure environment where every child may acquire the foundations for their holistic, personal and emotional development. We strive to open each child’s mind for future learning.

Our aim is:

  • To encourage curiosity, interest and enthusiasm in discovering their environment and the world around them
  • To introduce simple problem solving
  • To familiarise each child with routine, limits and boundaries
  • To develop their English language skills
  • To instil good manners and empathy
  • To encourage them to and benefit from social interaction
  • To promote independence and self care
  • To stimulate and develop fine and gross motor skills
  • To provide the introduction to numbers, phonics, simple concepts and themes

In this way, the children gain valuable life lessons and are prepared for their transition to Kindergarten,


With the guidance and loving care of Melina Junior’s teachers, children develop their social, emotional and academic personae in a safe, nurturing environment where individuality and cultural diversity are respected.
