About us

Learning philosophy

At My First Skool, we empower our children to learn through a pedagogical approach, called PETAL© - Playing, Exploring, Thinking, and Applying Learning. This approach provides facilitated play experiences that aid your child's learning and development.

We focus on play because young children learn best through engaging in activities that interest them. The activities planned at My First Skool cover six areas which provide holistic development:
