Young Parents (Singapore) - - Preschool Series -

You’d be for­given for think­ing that the My First Skool (MFS) cam­pus at 2 Pung­gol Drive is a mega play­ground in­stead of a preschool.

Fea­tur­ing five unique play ar­eas – an out­door play­ground, wa­ter play zone, land play zone, moun­tain play zone and for­est play zone – this sprawl­ing 94,561 sq ft-large Early Years Cen­tre is ev­ery kid’s won­der­land.

It is de­signed to take up to 1,000 chil­dren from aged two months to four years. Early Years Cen­tres tie up with nearby Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion Kinder­gartens, which pro­vide early child­hood ser­vices for chil­dren aged five to six.

The five unique playscapes, all lo­cated out­doors, en­cour­age learn­ing through sen­sory play, as well as build up chil­dren’s con­fi­dence, so­cial and mo­tor skills.

For in­stance, child-friendly rock-climb­ing mounds and step­ping logs at the moun­tain play zone al­low kids to hone their strength, flex­i­bil­ity and mo­tor skills, while the gar­den­ing ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able at the land play zone en­cour­age them to ap­pre­ci­ate the value of re­spon­si­bil­ity when they grow their own plants, from seed to har­vest.

The cen­tre’s in­door learn­ing ar­eas, de­signed to let in plenty of nat­u­ral light, are equally ex­cit­ing.

They are seg­re­gated into dif­fer­ent zones – cre­ative, ex­pres­sion and re­lax­ing – to al­low kids cre­ative ex­pres­sion and am­ple chance for ex­plo­ration. The school also boasts com­mu­nal din­ing spa­ces where chil­dren aged 18 months to four years dine to­gether and so­cialise. VIS­­first­ VISIT
