Academic Programmes

Playgroup

From the day they were born, our children require emotional care and physical affection in a nurturing and soothing environment. Every single experience is a totally new one for these bundles of joy. Their world is filled with seeing, hearing and feeling, which stimulates their senses to help them grow and develop.

As your child advances into The Early Learning Years playing with other kids helps him to unlock his social skills which will be an important lifetime tool. It also provides the vital building block for lifelong self-esteem. Being in a playschool or playgroup enhances their social and personal growth with the interactions made.

Our classroom is equipped with a broad array of materials and our programme encourages each child’s natural desire to learn. Children learn to concentrate, self-initiate, problem-solve and organize themselves. Play leads to a healthy dose of creativity, coordination and cooperation.

The Areas of Learning

Practical Life
The use of practical life materials give the child self-help skills for everyday living. The child is encouraged to be independent and confident. It brings about concentration, co-ordination, self-esteem, social awareness, orderliness and intellectual development.

Sensorial
The sensorial materials help to develop the five senses of touch, sight, smell, taste and hearing.

Mathematics
Math materials allow the child to become familiar with numbers at an early age.

Language
Children are taught the sounds of the alphabet (phonics). Language is stimulated through oral, listening and speaking learning experiences like show & tell, read alouds at story time.
