The Elizabeth Seton School has created a comprehensive student-centered curriculum that is compliant with
the prescriptions of the Philippine’s Department of Education and adaptable with the demanding
requirements of 21st Century learning. It is grounded in the school’s vision-mission and oriented towards
ensuring the promotion of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s values of Faith, Love and Selfless Service.
The Primary Division offers academic programs for pre-school education (Toddler to Kindergarten) and effectively promotes physical, social, intellectual, emotional and skills stimulation and value formation that efficiently prepare them to the initial stages of formal elementary schooling (Grade 1 to Grade 2).
The curriculum in Primary is designed towards enabling students to achieve a balanced cognitive, emotional, social and psychomotor development in a nurturing environment that recognizes the child’s varied multiple intelligences. It is focused on establishing a firm foundation in values, knowledge and skills to allow the child to understand his physical and social world, be able to independently function in it and relate to others as part of a social group.
To ensure the preparation of each child for higher grade levels, emphasis is placed on literacy and numeracy and social and emotional competence as evidence by its developmentally-appropriate and innovative activities for young children.
The preschool program adopts thematic/inter-disciplinary programs that engage students in creative-learning inside an informal classroom. Academically, students starting Nursery are gradually introduced to learning concepts by subject area in Mathematics, Science and English. To ensure as well that preschoolers are prepared for elementary, Filipino is incorporated in classes in Kindergarten.
As an introduction to elementary, primary students entering Grades 1 and 2 are gradually introduced to the rudiments of subject learning through inclusions of subjects like: Araling Panlipunan, Catholic Christian Formation, Music, Arts and Physical Education (MAPEH) and Computer into their weekly routine.
Students in this grade level as well are challenged to solve less complicated problems, make plain associations, build their English language proficiency and provide simple synthesis in fostering good citizenship, and respect to other people and their environment.
