Will my child learn spelling and Hanyu Pinyin?

We teach children ”语音课程” ie 听准音、说准音。 This programme is taught when children are in K2.
Will my child be ready for Primary School?
We firmly believe in helping your child develop a positive attitude towards learning as this is something they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Our learning programme for four to six year olds provides children with the opportunity to develop a range of crucial skills that will continue to grow as they do. There are 6 domains in which these skills are facilitated:
• Language and Literacy
• Discovery of the World
• Motor Skill Development
• Aesthetics and Creative Expression
• Self and Emotional Development
By the time your child graduates from My First Skool, they would have acquired the skills needed to successfully progress to the primary school stage of their education. In our Primary School Preparatory Programme, developed for Kindergarten 2 children, teachers have regular conversations with the children to address issues such as going-to-school anxieties, making new friends and understanding school rules. This transition is a major one for your child and it is important to help him/her adjust well to a formal school setting, as well as new daily school and home routines.
What will the children be learning in N, K1, K2?
The learning themes for the different age groups are as follows:
|Term 1||Term 2||Term 3||Term 4|
|Nursery||Myself||My Senses (Part 1)||Animals||My Senses (Part 2)|

How can I find out what my child is learning?
