Enrichment programmes are designed to enhance the knowledge, skills and talents of your children over and above the early foundation skills covered in the kindergarten programme. Such enriched experiences will give them a head-start that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
ENGLISH (PHONICS & CREATIVE WRITING)
Letterland, a successful phonics based UK system, is adopted for teaching the English Language. The secret of its success lies in its pictogram characters, set in a delightful place called Letterland. Through storytelling, the characters talk about the sounds they make, and why their sounds vary in different context. It provides fun and creative ways to help children learn how to read, write and spell with confidence. It is used by leading pre-schools in Singapore and other parts of the world.
ENGLISH READING PROGRAMME
Adopted from the Ginn’s reading programme, the ‘Reading 360’ series is a set of reading text from United Kingdom that offers an all-round approach to reading and language learning. The comprehensive programme covers the foundation (Level 1 & 2) for children’s formal introduction to reading and language, and progresses gradually (Level 3 & 4) into more structured approach to reading, language and study skills. This will help children develop a life-long love for reading.
Our programme is designed at maximizing the learning of pre-school mathematics in which students are engaged in the process of making sense of mathematics and developing conceptual understanding. Children will be exposed and taught in these five important parts of mathematics which include Numbers; Geometry and Spatial Relations; Measurements; Patterns and Data Analysis, and hence set the foundation for all future mathematics skills and learning.
CHINESE PHONICS (HANYU PINYIN)
This enrichment programme provides the knowledge of Chinese phonetics that encompasses pronunciation of initials, finals and syllables, rules of phonetics spelling and nursery rhymes which improves children’s proficiency in Mandarin.
We offer a 9 beads abacus course which is an improved version of the traditional abacus. It only requires students to memorize 2 sets of formulas, thereby easier for students to master the skills. The course would progressively improve students’ mental arithmetic skill and strengthen their concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It ultimately inculcates a strong interest in the mathematics subject.
This programme employs hands-on activities for children to connect science to real-life scenarios. Hands-on activities allow children to learn through experimentations, observations and deductions which lead to the development of multiple intelligences and evolvement of the highest form of understanding.
CREATIVE ART & CRAFT
The programme aims to develop children’s drawing and colouring foundation. It also focuses on their fine motor skills, self-confidence and aesthetics development. As children develop a sense of aesthetics, they begin to recognize the importance of patterns, arrangements, proportions, use of light and colours and even themes as they pertain to art as a form of communication. Exposing your children to art & craft early can thus nurture their creativity, imagination and cognitive skills.
P1 PREPARATORY CLASS
This is a Primary 1 preparatory course for students between the ages of 5-6. It follows closely to the MOE syllabus in which students would be enriched with the essential skills and knowledge pertaining to the English (Grammar; Vocabulary; Comprehension; Writing...) and Mathematics (Numbers; Add & Subtract Operators; Measurements; Word Problems...) subjects so as to facilitate them for a smooth transition into the Primary One school learning journey.
