Our vision is to lay a foundation and offer the best early years education to promote children’s holistic growth, development and learning, allowing them to bloom naturally in a caring, safe, secure and stimulating environment.
Our curriculum is based on the ideology and principles of Finland’s National Core Curriculum for Early Childhood Education and Care 2016 (ECEC). The ECEC is a combined approach to education and care where we aim to provide integrated care, education and teaching to all the children, equally in a caring and conducive learning environment.
For this sensitive age, we provide a variety of educational resources to stimulate their senses, social interaction and physical development as well as encouraging early discovery and role play. Toddlers will have access to messy play/art area for them to be creative, explore textures, colours, different sensory and tactile resources and really get messy in a way that they might not have the opportunity to at home. There is a soft area to relax and soft play equipment with enough space for those early walkers and a separate sleep room.
Children have access to a variety of educational resources including language, arts, numeracy and social sciences. This class has access to their classroom area as well as the activity room which are interconnected. The interconnecting rooms offer a free flow between the class room activities and the learning zones which are conducive to their artistic discovery and messy and role play.
All the activities pertaining to the learning zones meet their inner needs in order to help develop their social, personal and inter-dependence. Attention to detail has been given to this age group who are going through a very strong sensitive period for the various senses.
The preschool class has been designed to have free flow between 2 rooms and activities with a wide range of resources that will prepare them for primary education. They have access to the classroom area as well as the activity room which are interconnected. There are dedicated areas for pre reading, writing and numeracy skills with educational resources to develop fine motor skills, numeracy and literacy skills, social and emotional skills with a large range of social science related equipment and a soft area to sit and browse both factual and fictional books. The connecting room which comprises the learning zones, are meticulously prepared, rick and flexible environments, keeping in mind the topics and interests of the children.
The children’s learning journey right from toddlers to nursery to preschool is interlinked in line with our six core content areas.
