The role of play is essential in children’s lives. Play contributes to social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Learning in the early years is most effective when there is a balance of child-initiated play and adult-initiated learning engagements.
Welcome to Elementary School
Our elementary students in Grades 1 through 5 benefit from a holistic education where there is a great emphasis on differentiating the curriculum to meet the individual needs of our students. Our program stems from an inquiry-based approach where children learn to ask and answer important questions about themselves and their learning.
At AAS Moscow, holistic education means teaching the whole child. We define holistic learning as academic, social, emotional, and ethical learning.
We take an inquiry based approach to learning. Children are encouraged to ask questions, investigate, tinker, and find answers which makes their learning journey experiential in nature.
Children are encouraged to take risks and failures are seen as opportunities to grow, learn, and become more resilient as learners.
Students develop a competent toolkit of social and emotional skills through group work, playtime, guidance lessons with our counselor, conflict resolution and other important competencies while in a safe and caring environment.
