Par­ents in Pe­nang now have ac­cess to two highly-re­garded preschools and var­i­ous en­rich­ment pro­grammes, all con­ve­niently lo­cated in one cam­pus on Jalan Macalister, an eas­ily-ac­ces­si­ble part of Ge­orge Town.

Par­ents these days want only the best for their chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion. Af­ter all, choos­ing the cor­rect preschool will give your child the ad­van­tage needed for a suc­cess­ful start in pri­mary school. The Learn­ing Vil­lage com­prises two preschools of­fer­ing par­ents a choice of in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned teach­ing method­olo­gies.

The Chil­dren’s House was the first preschool in Malaysia to of­fer the Montes­sori method of learn­ing in 1986, and has been pro­vid­ing su­perb preschool ed­u­ca­tion in nine ex­ist­ing cam­puses in the Klang Val­ley serv­ing both lo­cal and ex­pa­tri­ate fam­i­lies. The Montes­sori method is based on the nat­u­ral men­tal and phys­i­cal pro­gres­sion of the child with an em­pha­sis on en­cour­ag­ing in­de­pen­dence, hands-on learn­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tive play. The other is Odyssey – The Global Preschool, a mul­ti­award win­ning preschool group based in Sin­ga­pore in­spired by the famed Reg­gio Emilia method, which is known for en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren to re­alise their full po­ten­tial. Odyssey’s ed­u­ca­tional phi­los­o­phy has been de­vel­oped us­ing the best prac­tises de­rived from in­ter­na­tional school sys­tems.

Also within this unique cam­pus is the Learn­ing Hori­zon, a lead­ing provider of en­rich­ment pro­grammes, work­shops and cus­tomised camps for chil­dren aged two to six. The pro­grammes on of­fer, which have been de­vel­oped by pro­fes­sional train­ers, in­clude fenc­ing, bal­let, as well as speech and drama.

The Asian In­ter­na­tional Col­lege is also lo­cated here. It’s a glob­ally-ac­cred­ited re­search and train­ing col­lege pro­vid­ing early child­hood ed­u­ca­tors pro­fes­sional pro­grammes to pre­pare them for the task of teach­ing and un­der­stand­ing the ped­a­go­gies re­lated to early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion.

With these four in­sti­tu­tions in one cam­pus, the best early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion is now avail­able in Pe­nang. So make an ap­point­ment to visit The Learn­ing Vil­lage and make the right choice for your child.
