A LOVE FOR LEARN­ING

Young Parents (Singapore) - - MOE KINDERGARTEN SPECIAL -

De­vel­oped by MOE spe­cial­ists, its two flag­ship pro­grammes seek to ig­nite the joy and love of learn­ing in chil­dren with its in­te­grated ap­proach. The HI-Light Pro­gramme nur­tures chil­dren holis­ti­cally and sup­ports their de­vel­op­ment in a wide range of ar­eas such as mo­tor skills and cre­ative ex­pres­sion. The Starlight Lit­er­ary Pro­gramme nur­tures early bilin­gual­ism and is of­fered in English and three of­fi­cial Mother Tongue Lan­guages.

MOE Kinder­gartens work hard to build your lit­tle one’s all-im­por­tant self-con­fi­dence and so­cial skills. Ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers en­gage chil­dren in lively con­ver­sa­tion, help­ing them nat­u­rally build on ideas and con­cepts. Chil­dren are also en­gaged in pur­pose­ful play where they learn through en­joy­able ac­tiv­i­ties planned to achieve de­sired learn­ing out­comes.

GO­ING LO­CAL

Boast­ing a dis­tinctly Sin­ga­porean flavour, MOE’s cur­ricu­lum helps chil­dren learn about the world around them in an au­then­tic con­text. Your child will ex­plore the sig­nif­i­cance of lo­cal fes­ti­vals, food and im­por­tant tra­di­tions while learn­ing im­por­tant val­ues such as care, re­spect and har­mony. Each term, chil­dren em­bark on a Weeks of Won­der pro­ject, col­lab­o­rat­ing with their peers and teach­ers to in­ves­ti­gate top­ics of their in­ter­est such as spi­ders, dragon boats and even lo­cal ar­chi­tec­ture.

What’s more, 12 of the 15 kinder­gartens are lo­cated within pri­mary schools. This means a richer learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for chil­dren, thanks to close part­ner­ships be­tween all 15 MOE Kinder­gartens and their host and nearby pri­mary schools. Chil­dren will also be able to en­joy a smoother tran­si­tion to Pri­mary 1.

So if you would like your child to be mo­ti­vated to ask ques­tions and dis­cover more about the world around him or her, choose MOE Kinder­gartens. Your child will be on to a strong start! Par­ents have plenty of op­tions when it comes to choos­ing a suit­able kinder­garten for their child. Im­por­tant fac­tors to con­sider in­clude the right cur­ricu­lum that will sup­port their learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment, cost, class size and fa­cil­i­ties.
