Qatar is introducing a pre-kindergarten level to public schools
The change is anticipated to take effect in August of the next school year.
The ministry chose four schools to test the project’s implementation, which is spread to various places in accordance with predetermined rules and criteria.
The project’s launch was inspired by a belief in the importance of early education and its effect on raising children’s passion for learning.
It also intends to provide children with additional possibilities to maintain this motivation.
The four test sites have been identified as Al Manar Model Kindergarten for Boys in Ar-Rayyan, Abu Hanifa Kindergarten for Boys in the Doha Municipality, Kindergarten Zekreet Independent Primary Girls, and Al Khwarizmi Kindergarten for Girls.
These kindergartens were chosen based on strict standards for child enrollment, gender, and population density, which ensures a positive experience and satisfies demand during the initial pilot stage.
Each academic class will accommodate 16 students, with two teachers, and an assistant teacher.
