EARLY CHILDHOOD YEARS
Our curriculum encompasses inquiry, proactive discussions and creativity. Learning activities encourage autonomy, risk-taking, responsibility, and conflict resolution in order to provide the students with a sense of achievement. Learning is based upon exploration, observation, imitation, self-discovery, manipulation and direct experience with interesting resources.
Play is encouraged in both indoor and outdoor settings so that our students are able to use the environment to solve problems in an enjoyable way. Laughter and fun are parts of our learning atmosphere. The classrooms are comfortable, clean and stimulating.
Our teachers use a variety of strategies including individual, small and whole group activities, a balance between structured & non-structured experiences as well as provisions for quiet time, to cater to all learning styles and development levels. While respecting the student’s first language and encouraging the practice of Mandarin, teachers are committed to reinforce the use of English Language throughout the School.
