Pre-school education is the provision of education for children before the commencement
of statutory education. English is spoken in our school. We lead children to master practical English throughout everyday life, in the most enjoyable way.

Early childfood is very different from the later school years.
Children learn best through play and exploration (experiences). Based on the knowledge of what young children are like, we design our age-appropriate program to fit them. Children learn through the program based on monthly themes.

 The children will learn to develop under the mixture of our thematic approach. This mixture will involve the following motor skills, perception, literacy, memory, problem solving, socialization and multicultural awareness.
 Each child will learn basic skills in an environment that promotes concentration, order, independence and love for learning. This is the stage wherein the children build their foundation in preparation for elementary level.

The Children will develop and learn the following:

・ Language ------Verbal self-expression, cultural literacy, classifying and sequencing,
             knowledge of phonetic sounds and blends, word building and vocabulary,
             reading and writing.
・ Social Skills --- Build self esteem, positive interpersonal relationships, self control, cooperation,
             respect for self and environment.
・ Math ----------Concept of basic numeracy and calculation
・Science --------Cultivate their natural sense of wonder and curiosity and stimulate them further to
            find out the “why” and “how” of the world.
・ Enrichment Subjects --- Learn songs, poems, dramatic art, appreciate arts and crafts

All lessons, instructions and communication in the classroom are in English.
