Agape Little Uni’s curriculum framework builds on children’s natural desire to learn and interact with the things around them. We provide an enriching and holistic learning environment for the children. Besides that, we believe in partnering and fostering positive partnerships with families and communities which would then contribute to the children’s learning and development.
In Agape, we use the iSTREAM curriculum which is uniquely designed to meet the learning needs and the growth of the young children. The contents of our infant programme are purposefully planned to stimulate the brain activities of the children. We believe that children’s learning capacity is maximized and optimized to their full potential if we are able to plan meaningful activities that will help in integrating the function of the different parts of the brain.
From birth to age 5, children’s brains are at their most plastic and sensitive state. It doubles its size in its first year and will continue growing by age 5. Hence, it is important for the brain to be stimulated with positive and negative experiences as it determines on how the brain develops.
Our iBrain learning activities include the integration of different learning areas such as Early Language and Literacy, Early Numeracy, Natural Environment, Physical Development, Social and Emotional Development, Music and Movement and Visual Arts. It is important for the children to be engaged in these different learning areas so that they are able to develop holistically.
Our infant programme is flexible and it accommodates to the different needs of the children. This means that while some children may be having their naps, others may be engaging in small or large group activities. Hence, children are not being rushed when engaging in activities. We believe in working and following the children’s natural routines and around their feeding and sleeping times so that the children know that they are being respected. This is also to ensure that they feel secure and safe under our care.
