We are delighted to announce the opening of our first Pre-ELC class on the 17th October 2022.  This service will be a wonderful addition for our families, as our youngest students join the AIS family and prepare for school. 

The Pre- ELC class is limited to 20 students and will have a full time teacher and assistant. It will be located within the ‘A’ Block, where ELC is currently taught. 


Teachers will follow the Early Years Learning Framework which is the National guideline for teaching in the early years across Australia.

It has been developed based on international research and has a specific emphasis on:

  • play-based learning.
  • encouraging curiosity and inquiry.
  • individualised programs supporting each child in reaching their social and academic potential.

There are five outcomes covering social and academic skills which are used to guide our planning and assessment of children’s learning.


The pre-ELC will cater for students aged 3 years old and above. Parents of children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020 can apply for this 2022-2023 academic year.


Monday to Thursday from 8.15am to 12.15pm.

All lessons are for 30 minutes. Arabic, PE and Library are fixed times, the rest is flexible to children’s needs and interests. Class timetables will be shared with parents on ClassDojo.

If you are interested, kindly collect an enrolment pack from our Enrolments Department at your earliest convenience as spaces are limited. Once we receive your completed enrolment pack, an enrolment interview with the Deputy Head of School (ELC-Grade 2) will be scheduled. Following the interview, your child will be offered a place in our Pre-ELC.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
