3- and 4-Year-Olds Programs

QSI International School of Dili provides a developmentally appropriate, hands-on opportunity for children to learn. The classroom is designed for children to experience literacy, mathematics, science, and cultural studies topics that focus on the interests and skills of young children. Centers are set up to capture the imagination of children, and encourage them to attain skills in a creative and purposeful manner.

The preschool curriculum is based on children acquiring the skills needed to begin their learning journey in school. Materials are obtained locally and from the yearly stateside order. These materials support the objectives and needs of each child.

The 3- and 4-year-olds teachers always have the assistance of a paraprofessional throughout the day. Our preschools are happy, busy, and vibrant places.
