Program

Our program is bilingual (English and Chinese), and includes a combination of small group and large group teachings, formal and informal activities, investigations, and projects that allow children to work on their own and in groups.

Approach of Teaching

The kindergarten emphasises a child-centred, process-oriented hands-on approach whereby children’s choices, decisions and works are respected.
Teachers teach, direct and provide appropriate facilitation to encourage an inquisitive, creative and critical mind, cultivate a love for learning, and develop in children a positive attitude towards school.

Learning centres are set up to extend children’s knowledge and skills, and allow them to be independent and confident learners.
