Every child is a gift, a unique individual who learns at their one pace. The first 5 years of a child’s life is an important building block. Children are like sponges; every new experience, every word they learn and every behaviour they adopt is an investment in a more fruitful future.
Our preschool education aims to hone and mold holistic children with good Christian values, which will eventually form the basis of their lifelong journey. We aspire to develop every child to be curious, passionate and self-disciplined learners and be a good role model that is nurturing and caring. Children are engaged in exploration of materials and display innovative skills and in differentiated learning experiences that enables them to be reflective of their own learning so that they can achieve their full potential.
Our curriculum is :
* Inspired by “Reggio Emilia” using discovery and thematic approaches
* Modeled after the Kindergarten framework of the Ministry of Education
* Infused elements of Montessori Curriculum
Our high quality early learning program based on the curriculum has a long-term impact on a child’s cognitive and social development and it will give them the tools they need to succeed in their primary years and beyond.
