Young Parents (Singapore) - - Preschool Series -

Get­ting up­close and per­sonal with na­ture is an ev­ery­day re­al­ity for kids en­rolled in Skool4Kidz Cam­pus at Sengkang River­side Park.

The two-storey co­coon-like cam­pus, which can ac­com­mo­date 462 chil­dren and in­fants, is de­signed to pro­vide a “park within a park” learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

It fea­tures an in­door gar­den atrium with sky­bridge, a but­ter­fly lodge, an ate­lier loft with read­ing space and a unique din­ing space that will serve food from the school’s gar­den har­vests.

There are also out­door play cor­ri­dors that ex­tend learn­ing out­side the class­rooms seam­lessly. Th­ese in­no­va­tive play ar­eas pro­vide for mul­ti­ple open-ended play and learn­ing spa­ces, where your lit­tle one gets to ex­plore and dis­cover wa­ter and sand, as well as other nat­u­ral and re­cy­clable ma­te­ri­als such as wood and peb­bles.

The preschool uses tech­nol­ogy in its cur­ricu­lum to sup­port and en­hance learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. For in­stance, mo­bile de­vices and tablets are used in the sur­round­ing gar­dens for kids to ac­cess in­ter­ac­tive ed­u­ca­tional con­tent when they ven­ture out­doors.
