Our Infant and Toddler Programme focuses on daily interactions, relationships and experiences with children and their families. The success of infant and toddler programme lies on our daily interactions with the children and their families. We place great emphasis on home-school experiences in our curriculum as parents are the first teachers of children and they are irreplaceable. The roles of our Educarers are to support the families in developing children holistically.
Activities with infants and toddlers include the integration of various learning areas such as language, music appreciation and motor skills development. They are achieved through storytelling, songs & rhymes and sensorial games.
We see routine care as part of the curriculum. Routine care provides opportunities for bonding and interactions. Schedules for infant and toddler programme are flexible and accommodating to individual needs.

We believe that children learn by doing and socializing with others. Our Early Years programme provides children with a strong language foundation. It is a powerful platform which prepares them for deeper learning and exploration as they progress to the Preschool programme. We build children’s listening and speaking skills through interesting and purposeful activities such as stories, drama, music and the arts. As the children immerse themselves in these activities, they learn to communicate and apply new words when they converse with others.
Leveraging on children’s active nature, we provide learning experiences that enhance their gross and fine motor skills, and self-help skills. Through these experiences, children develop self-control, which improves their social and moral capacities and hence, increase their learning performance.
Nursery 2 Age Group: 3 yrs.- 4 yrs.
Kindergarten 1 Age Group: 4 yrs. – 5 yrs.
Kindergarten 2 Age Group: 5 yrs. -6 yrs.
Our Inquiry-based learning programme (IBL) focuses on children’s innate abilities to explore, communicate and make meaning of the world they live in. IBL equips children with the 21st century skills to prepare them for success in an ever-changing world.
Using a systematic approach to inquiry, children combine the use of process skills (e.g. observation, communication, data handling) to find the answers to their questions. Children learn to think critically and solve real life problems.
Every unit of work is purposefully selected. The content of each unit is significant to children’s current experiences or issues around the world. Skills and knowledge such as language, literacy, mathematics and arts are integrated into each unit of work through engaging and relevant learning experiences in the classrooms and beyond.
