Shared dining is our norm to encourage a sense of community and sharing. In Nursery (N) and Pre-Kindergarten (PK), a hot and nutritious lunch is served in the classroom with family dining. In Kindergarten1 (K1) and Kindergarten 2 (K2), the children dine in a designated part of the cafeteria set up with age appropriate furnishings. The menu is designed to encourage students to try new tastes whilst also being able to select and create their own plate from a variety of food options. In addition to a hot meal, a healthy salad bar is available daily offering a wide range of protein and vitamin rich foods for children to enjoy. Children are also encouraged to drink water regularly throughout the day. ICS has water refill stations located throughout its campus.

International Baccalaureate Programme
Our Preschool and Kindergarten programme is accredited by the globally recognized International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. The IB focuses on inquiry-based learning. Teachers present interesting stimuli which triggers students’ curiosity. Inquiries focus on age-appropriate real-world issues and cover themes such as “Who we are” and “How the world works.”
Students also learn critical-thinking and collaboration. And in ICS’s multicultural environment, students gain an international perspective. They are open-minded, caring, and principled communicators. They take risks, reflect on their actions, and are passionate about discovering their worlds.
