Evaluation for Early Years is done every term in all levels through oral and written diagnoses supported by narrative reports with photo and video evidenced records in all areas of learning. These assessments include parents’ involvement and regular report to help both teachers and parents to be aware of the child’s strengths and areas needing improvement. Assessments coupled with regular Parent-Teacher Meetings support student learning effectively, assessing areas such as literacy, numeracy and abilities such as critical thinking and problem solving that will better prepare them in primary level.
