The early years of learning are an exciting time of growth in all areas of development: academic, social, physical, emotional and spiritual. Our holistic approach to education is evident in the way we integrate all of these aspects within a safe learning environment where the needs of students are our paramount focus.
At each grade level, CAIS students explore their creative side. In art classes, students learn to draw, paint, sculpt and get to know the techniques of diverse artists and styles. In music classes, students sing and practice instruments. They discover the sounds of different musicians, composers and genres. We also integrate art into our other courses to breathe fresh life into the material, combining information with inspiration for a dynamic school experience.
All of our Primary classes are taught by experienced and caring homeroom teachers. They are assisted by a wide range of specialists, support teachers and educational assistants.
Our Primary section consists of three main groups of classes:
- Lower Primary (Grades 1 – 3)
- Upper Primary (Grades 4 – 6)

We seek to instill a solid foundation of God’s love in children’s exciting and changing world. Young ones are naturally curious and eager to learn, therefore we provide learning experiences that will nurture a thirst for knowledge and godliness. We place great importance on instilling moral values and we believe in the holistic development of each unique child. Through interactions, activities and purposeful play, children explore and experiment with their environment to add to their knowledge and learn new skills.
Our enthusiastic and talented team recognizes that parents are a child’s first teachers and warmly welcome parental participation. The more involved you are in your child’s learning, the greater success they will have in school. We look forward to collaborating with you to help your child achieve their God-given potential!
Lower Primary (Grades 1 - 3)
Our Lower Primary enthusiastic teaching team has created a welcoming and safe environment for our young learners in homeroom classes. In addition, our school is designed to facilitate Small Learning Communities, with group learning zones located near classrooms in the primary wing to immerse students in a nurturing, interactive learning environment. Along with our strong teacher-student ratio, we are able to cater to the specific interests and needs of students on an individual basis, giving them the inspiration and instruction needed to reach their potential across full spectrum of subjects.
Upper Primary (Grades 4 - 6)
As students enter the Upper Primary grades, they learn knowledge and key skills that prepare them for Secondary and beyond. Students mature in leaps and bounds during these years and we aim to nurture them to become all God wants them to be.
In Grade 4, Upper Primary students attend overnight camp for the first time. While camping continues in the upper-grade level, in Grade 5, students take part in other areas with core subjects. Grade 6 is a very important year of transition, which we prepare students for the coming Secondary education so that they can achieve their learning goals and reach their potential. Upper Primary students learn the importance of becoming responsible for their own learning and our Upper Primary team works hard to instill this value in our students.
