Eliana is finishing her first year of preschool in Indonesia this week. In July she will be begin Prep, which is essentially Kindergarten. But I have to say that I am extremely impressed with the school curriculum here. Ellie started the year knowing her phonics in English and Spanish (carry over from her days at Aprende Con Amigos in Portland) and is ending the year understanding basic Indonesian, reading three letter words in English and Indonesian, writing letters and numbers, basic computer skills, piano basics, intermediate swimming abilities, and overall enhanced motor skills. Not bad! Here are some pictures shared with me from the school. Enjoy!
