The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

MANY be­lieve that ed­u­ca­tion is a life­long jour­ney. So does Kin­der­land which started its jour­ney 35 years ago.

From a hum­ble start, Kin­der­land has grown to over 100 cen­tres in Sin­ga­pore, In­done­sia, China and Malaysia. Kin­der­land has been pro­vid­ing early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion that nur­tures learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment for young chil­dren from in­fancy to six years old.

Kin­der­land started by tak­ing a giant leap with the in­tro­duc­tion of key­board mu­sic in its preschool cur­ricu­lum in 1978. Mu­sic re­mains a unique fea­ture of the Kin­der­land Cur­ricu­lum where it helps to ad­vance the early child­hood learn­ing pro­cesses.

Kin­der­land set an­other mile­stone with its the­matic-based teach­ing since 1987 and trans­formed the way young chil­dren learn with its In­te­grated Cur­ricu­lum.

Since then, the cen­tre con­tin­ues to lead the way to nur­ture chil­dren’s po­ten­tial by push­ing the bound­aries in early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion.

Kin­der­land The­matic In­te­grated Cur­ricu­lum

Kin­der­land The­matic In­te­grated Cur­ricu­lum ex­pands chil­dren’s learn­ing hori­zon and nur­tures their po­ten­tial. Through this, chil­dren dis­cover their in­di­vid­ual po­ten­tial by ex­plor­ing knowl­edge in dif­fer­ent ar­eas. This will lay a solid foun­da­tion and love of learn­ing.

All chil­dren learn, but few love to learn. The Kin­der­land The­matic In­te­grated Cur­ricu­lum pushes bound­aries that will un­fold chil­dren’s po­ten­tial.

Chil­dren Mu­sic Course and Move with Mu­sic Pro­gramme

This 45-minute weekly Chil­dren Mu­sic Course and Move with Mu­sic Pro­gramme in­clude teach­ing of solfege, key­board­ing skills, rudi­ments of mu­sic the­ory and mu­sic ap­pre­ci­a­tion by pro­fes­sional mu­sic teach­ers.

By in­cor­po­rat­ing mu­sic learn­ing in the early child­hood age seven, stud­ies pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Neu­ro­science show that chil­dren will have strong brain de­vel­op­ment.

En­rich­ment mu­sic learn­ing en­hances lan­guage learn­ing de­vel­op­ment, which falls un­der the um­brella of the brain de­vel­op­ment.

Kin­der­land uses the mu­sic en­rich­ment ap­proach to de­velop chil­dren’s lit­er­acy skills, from lis­ten­ing to speak­ing skills. It has proven to be an ef­fec­tive fun way of learn­ing lan­guages and ac­cel­er­ates lan­guage and lit­er­acy skills in young chil­dren.

Kin­derFit Well­ness Pro­gramme

Kin­derfit is de­vel­oped by the United States Phys­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion spe­cial­ists. This whole­some pro­gramme em­pha­sises on nutri­tion with ex­er­cise.

It helps chil­dren de­velop good move­ment and co­or­di­na­tion skills as well as cul­ti­vate healthy eat­ing habits. Kin­der­land is the first to launch this com­plete well­ness pro­gramme.

Kin­derfit for preschool­ers

Kin­der­land be­lieves that chil­dren learn best through mean­ing­ful and pur­pose­ful play.

The Kin­der­land cur­ricu­lum pro­vides a bal­ance com­pre­hen­sive and stim­u­lat­ing preschool ex­pe­ri­ence to de­velop a child’s po­ten­tial and to pre­pare him for suc­cess in school.
