Kindergarten Level

The Kindergarten

Our curriculum is modelled on the challenging and rigorous Curriculum of Singapore which stresses academic excellence in teaching and learning. The early years have a crucial influence on later development and learning. Quality early experiences have been found to make a difference to the future achievement of children.

Young children are natural and active learners. They enjoy observing, exploring, imagining, discovering, investigating, collecting information and sharing knowledge.

These early learning experiences can be further enhanced by caring adult who promote high levels of interaction to promote positive attitudes to learning. This is achieved through both play and structured learning in an enjoyable and non – threatening environment. By the end of their education in kindergarten, children should:

Know what is right and what is wrong
Be willing to share and take turns with others
Be able to relate to others
Be able to listen and speak with understanding
Be comfortable and happy with themselves
Have developed physical co-ordination and healthy habits
Love their families, friends, teachers and school
