Teachers ignite a child’s interest and passion in learning by providing an encouraging environment with opportunities to interact with the nature, adults and peers. Supporting young children in decision-making, problem-solving and knowledge acquisition provides practice to equip them to be an active and all-rounded child. The methods that amplify a child’s learning experience are fundamental yet crucial in early childhood education, thus we strive to guide our children hand in hand while they explore what the world has to offer.
We believe that no child should be left behind when it comes to play. As play is critical and should not be sidelined, we place high emphasis on play-based learning to encourage engagement, communication, physical development and social-emotional development that rote memorization, testing and writing do not. The attention placed on fun-learning does not solely mean having fun, but to strengthen a child’s expression and understanding towards the outside world.
We are delighted to highlight our distinctive feature of our curriculum that includes Projects in our learning. Every third term of the academic year, we place full attentional focus on our Projects based on the children’s interest. According to the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) theory, children learn from the difference of what they can do without help/guidance and what they can do with help and encouragement from an experienced caregiver. In Junior Champs, we use 8 weeks for our project-based learning, with 3 phases of discovery, exploration and presentation. Click here for more information about our project-based curriculum.
