Three-year-olds are full of wonder. This is an exciting time for these young learners, who are changing physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Days are filled with busy explorations, investigations, and discoveries. Children express themselves through art, music, and movement. They practice math and number concepts using age-appropriate materials to organize, sort, count, build, and sequence.
Topic of inquiry will be introduced to them at this stage in order for them to gain a good headstart. They develop motor skills and coordination while running, jumping, hopping and skipping. They demonstrate an emerging love of reading and writing, using growing literacy skills during read-alouds, shared readings and reading groups.
Our learners begin to develop a rich vocabulary and use language on a daily basis through informal conversations with their teachers. They discover a new way to express themselves both in words and ideas. This allows their social world to expand even further. Days are filled with making meaning of every learning opportunity encountered at school.
We encourage four-year-olds to be imaginative, energetic, inquiry-based learners who explore the topic of inquiry with curiosity and purpose. They are eager to learn, and school activities are designed to involve and engage these young students with interesting lessons and materials.
Learners make independent choices in a child-centered learning environment, following well-established structures and routines to guide them. Opportunities for hands-on learning are presented daily, allowing students to grow through play and real-world experiences. Inquiry time is used to explore the different topic of inquiry. Learners engage in conversations with teachers and friends daily, learning to take turns, listen, and share.
Throughout the day, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development are nurtured in a warm, caring, safe environment, providing students with the early skills to become lifelong learners.
This will be the final year for our learners to refine the five Essential Skills before stepping into primary schools. Equipped with the knowledge of three main languages in Malaysia, Science, Math, Information & Communication Technology, Visual Art, Dance & Movement, Moral Education, and Physical Education, our learners will have a smooth transition into primary years after that.
In addition to that, our learners have an added advantage of our Programme of Inquiry that allows them to inquire into topics close to their hearts. The opportunity to work in various settings and to explore different issues makes them more aware of their surroundings.
We encourage continuing languagedevelopment through sound recognition & sight reading, writing activities, reading and stories. Learners have the opportunity to practice writing simple stories and to stage plays. They develop math and spatial skills with activities that focus on mathematical and computational skills. They are encouraged to learn through hands-on discoveries in each learning centres.
Children at the age of five are developing physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Our skill-based kindergarten programmes includes reading, language arts with the formal introduction of Mandarin and Malay Language, Math, Science, Information & Communication Technology, Visual Art, Dance & Movement, Moral Education and Physical Education. The programme helps our learners develop all of the Essential Skills in a warm, nurturing environment.
Facilitators provide opportunities for children to create, communicate, and collaborate with others, whether in a whole-group setting, small groups, or individual lessons. Our programme encourages the development of social and communication skills through activities that promote friendship, teamwork, sharing, and caring.
Children at this age are eager to explore, discover and investigate everything around them. Our program encourages exploration and discovery while providing a formal education to prepare them for primary years later on.
