Entering Kinder Academy is the advent of an adventure; one that is full of awe and discovery,
a world in which our main elements are our little stars! Little stars who are at ease beyond their borders;
confident and secure; artists no matter their field; practical in the ways of the world;
emotionally unafraid and physically fit; humble about their gifts and generous
of spirit. Most importantly, architects of lives that transcend the ordinary!

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

AMINA SIDDIQUI

Speech Language Therapist
We are very delighted to be working in partnership with Dr. Amina Siddiqui from Ziauddin Hospital University who specializes in Speech Languages and Child Psychology.

Children do not only learn at school. They learn at home, through socializing with their family, caretakers and friends, and while performing simple tasks. We believe in working in partnership with our parents to understand your child better, so that their milestone achievement, and transition to different developmental stages is as smooth as possible.

We believe every child is unique, with different strengths and gifts. Alongside our educational psychologists, who understand the way our little ones minds and development work best, we aim to provide your child with the best education, assistance and support according to their own individual needs.

Our child specialists every quarterly will be screening all the students through their work assessments, observation and by talking to them and the parents to see how they are doing, what traits they are strongest in, what areas of development they are struggling with, and how can we tailor-make our assistance and teaching methods, so they can benefit the most from our learning system and find further educational transition easier, later on in life.
