 1- Nursery Stage

Talking about nursery stage is going to take too much time and visiting one of the nurseries in Egypt is going to add so much fun to your Egypt tours, watching our kids while there are playing and creating new ideas in their life will make your tour in Egypt completely different.

Kids start to join nursery about 2 years and 6 months which is very difficult for both mum and kid that’s why if you visit a nursery during the first week of September you can found all mothers are waiting for their kids outside classrooms they refuse to get back home without kids during the first week of study and this stage just takes 1 year then the kids can move to Kindergarten stage.

2- Kindergarten

Our Kids join this stage when they are 3 years and 6 months and this stage takes two years.

In this stage kid may ask to recognize the shape of the letters and numbers in Arabic and English by the end of the first year the child became able to write his name.

During the second year of this stage, kids are recognizing many short words like names of fruits, vegetables, and animals in Arabic and English.

The Kindergarten management offers so many activates for kids like sports, social and tours activity. By the end of this stage, kids are able to sing about 20 English songs and know not less than 100 English words beside Arabic and can calculate 2 digit numbers by additions.

It is a very important and most difficult stage which enables the kid to build his personality and it’s depending on the well-educated teachers who are very clever and smart enough to deal with kids in their early life and make him feel at home, all teachers in this stage are females.
