Levels

Kids in Preschool

18 months to 2 years

We expose children at this age to letters and their associated sounds in a fun way through Letter Land, rhymes, games and other activities. We also introduce pre-reading skills, pre-writing skills and problem solving skills to children of this age.

 

Teacher to student ratios are kept to no more than 1:6 so each child receives the level of attention and guidance required to develop social competence and a sense of autonomy. In other words, the building blocks to becoming a confident and well-adjusted individual.

Preschool Kid

2 years to 4 years

At this age, we start to provide your child with a more complex understanding of numbers. They will also embark on creative writing and our phonics programme to learn sounds, word families and consonant blends. Our mother tongue lessons will go into more in-depth spoken and basic writing skills. And we will bring learning experiences outside the school environment through our excursions.

Building Blocks

4 years to 6 years

Children at this stage are faster learners and more mature. Division, multiplication, penmanship, story sums, compositions and reading are carried out at a higher level. We also start to introduce project work and life skills classes to prepare them for further education and life in general.
