What is CLIL and why we use it in Step Up?
Our K program was carefully designed with the preschoolers needs in mind. We created a ground-breaking course that provides your children with a rich and varied curriculum. We included LA, Math, Art and Science elements, based on American common core standards.
Our curriculum partner, The Keystone elementary school (accredited American elementary school) provides us the combination of interactive online and offline class material, allowing our students to experience pure American curriculum.
