Early Years Curriculum

 

The Early Years Curriculum is a holistic, child-centred and exploratory curriculum that centres on developing children's communication and language skills, creative expression, physical skills and well-being, as well as personal and social development. Carefully structured learning as well as emergent experiences occurring through daily interactions with people, manipulation of materials, play routines and transitions are effective curriculum strategies employed to support children's language and cognitive growth. Early years curriculum is designed to ensure that our early years children experience a seamless and smooth transition to the more structured and skills-driven learning expectations of the preschool years.

Circle Time, a group activity that uses songs, rhymes and finger plays, stories and familiar objects or items of interest as the platform for engaging children in verbal communication, self-expressions and exploring feelings and social interactions and relationships.

Hands@Work, a hands-on learning, child-centred and exploratory curriculum that actively engages children in exploring with different art media, tactile and sensory materials. These hands-on, interactions effectively develop children's motor abilities and eye-hand coordination while allowing children to explore their world and make sense of things around them.

SkillWorks, offers skills learning to equip children with some fundamental skills needed for supporting the early years transition to preschool learning. Emergent skills are introduced through hands-on, exploratory and interactive experiences.

Enhancement
to the early years curriculum includes Rhythm 'N' Moves, GymWorks, PlayWorks and EQ Literacy which provide essential experiences in promoting a total curriculum and serves as the foundation for later intellectual development.
