Every child is unique. Our kindergarten takes into consideration our student’s developmental needs, experiences and interest when designing and implementing this child-centered, all rounded and game-based strategic instruction. Upholding the principle of inclusiveness, we care for the diversity among children to create a happy learning environment in school. All courses are children-centered which take place in a fun and safe environment, using internal and external resources of the school to provide real-life examples, sensory exploration and interesting game activities. Therefore, the students can learn from the environment, self and others around them and developing creativity, problem solving and adaptability skills by playing independently and collaboratively within the school activity’s zone. We hope to achieve these six developmental objectives such as: “Ethics”, “Intellectual”, “Physique”, “social skills”, “Aesthetics” and “Spiritual”.
Our Kindergarten will follow the Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guidelines (2017) to plan the curriculum. No Children in nursery classes will be required to write, nor will they be required to do mechanical copying or perform calculation exercises.
Our school uses “Learning Though Play” as the main learning and teaching strategy. Six themed preschool learning areas such as: “Self and Society”, “Nature and Living”, “Physical Fitness and Health”, “Art and Creativity”, “Early Childhood Mathematics” and “Language” are integrated within our comprehensive and balanced curriculum. Through “Learning Though Play” experience, we aim to support the process of our children’s acquisition of “knowledge”, “skills” and “values and attitudes”. In our campus facilities: “Game Campus”, “Rainbow Campus”, “Music Campus”, “Exploration Campus” and “Healthy Campus”, where children’s learning takes place. They are cultivated to have good character, active learning attitude, and construct knowledge, attitudes and skills from the process of inquiry.
When the “Picture Book” method is implemented in a linguistically rich environment where both Chinese and English are used; it can help to stimulate the children’s listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. As well as, developing the children’s thinking capability and help them to express their thoughts and feelings.
We assess children’s learning performance through continuous observation. We distribute children’s learning assessment upon completion of a theme, and we distribute the child’s Learning Portfolio at the end of every school term to help parents understand their child’s overall development.
