"Students grow to become a global, caring and responsible citizen of our planet."

If you take a short five-minute drive from the main campus, you will reach an oasis of learning and creativity amidst trees and birds singing. Our preschool campus is the place where our 3, 4 and 5 year olds come to play, discover, and to reach their fullest potential. 

The Preschool Program at Pan American School (PAS)recognizes that children learn best through playful interaction with their environment and friends. We offer our students a range of play-based learning opportunities such as blocks, cooking, dramatic play, literacy area, bean table, sandbox, manipulatives, songs, rhymes, and poetry while immersing them in an international curriculum.

The strong emphasis our faculty puts on English and students’ mother tongue enriches our preschool with an international atmosphere where tolerance, respect and global mindedness are not only words on the wall, but a visible action.  

The inquiry process of our International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is evident in the questions, conversations and artwork you will hear and see around our school. The students’ genuine curiosity is the starting point for our teachers to differentiate instruction for all our students. We prepare them to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

If your child does enroll at our PAS preschool, you can rest assured that he or she will grow to become a global, caring and responsible citizen of our planet who is confident to act in this ever-changing world. We hope you will join us!
