Preschool Curriculum

The Preschool Programme takes on a cognitive and constructivist approach to curriculum emphasising active child-centered learning experiences. The curriculum centers on children’s interests, curiosity and their natural quest for knowledge which leads to experiences in inquiry, investigations, discovery and active hands-on explorations. Expectations for holistic goals, development of life skills and competencies, dispositions and attitudes are promoted through an innovative integrated and project work curriculum complemented by an interactive skills-based curriculum, all of which are process-oriented and centers on the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and skills.

  • Centres around children’s interest and curiosity 
  • They have a natural quest for knowledge leading to experiences in inquiry, investigations, discovery and active hands-on explorations 
  • Development of life skills and competencies, disposition and attitudes are promoted through integrated project work 
  • Prepares children for successful transition to formal school 

Nursery Two (for 3 to 4 years)

Emphasis shifts from emergent strategies of the early years to purposeful acquisition and understanding of content, skills and concepts, leading to interdisciplinary learning experiences at the Nursery 2 level. The N2 curriculum reinforces children’s increasing competencies in language as a tool for learning and communications. Reading, phonics and numeracy skills are introduced to promote the children’s emergent capacity for acquiring skills. Physical skills are more sophisticated enabling children to begin practicing writing through manipulative and prewriting experiences. Expectations for personal and social development continue to be prioritized resulting in even greater autonomy and independence, enhanced self-help skills, self-concept and confidence.
