Curriculum

Learning through Play and Exploration

Relationships: the heart of our curriculum

With over 40 years of expertise in child development, My First Skool ensures that our curriculum stays current with the latest developments in early childhood to equip children at that stage in their development with the right skills and mindset to thrive in this ever-changing world.

We recognise that children are unique individuals. They explore their environment, form opinions, and want to be heard. As such, we centre our curriculum around relationships, forging close bonds, and building genuine connections with the children and parents.

Children who receive encouragement and love are more eager to learn and play; and are empowered with the social competency skills needed to navigate different situations.

Curious, Thoughtful, and Active Lifelong Learners

At My First Skool, we do not just focus on teaching academic subjects to our children. We want to impart a love for learning, which is why the acquisition of skills and knowledge is something we strive to make more effective and interesting – through curriculum development, partnerships with leading agencies, or innovative teaching methods.

A holistic learning experience with PETAL©

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 encourage active exploration, critical thinking and making meaningful discoveries.

Learning occurs through hands-on games and activities during lessons, and at our Learning Corners.

Helping your child to explore, adapt, and thrive.

Language & Literacy

Children develop strong listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills when they interact with their peers early in life. We encourage our children to participate in class discussions and provide opportunities for them to gain confidence via show-and-tell sessions with their teachers and peers. The result: confident and effective communicators in life.

Numeracy

To help children understand numeracy, we introduce simple yet effective mathematical concepts by integrating everyday objects into class and learning activities. This enables them to apply numeracy skills when solving real-world problems and prepares them for more advanced numeracy concepts in primary school.

Discovery of the World

The world is a big place. That’s why we help children make sense of the world around them through outdoor activities, providing opportunities for simple experiments. Through widening our children’s knowledge and essential skills, we lay the foundations that spark and sustain their curiosity for science, history, and geography.

Motor Skills Development

An active, healthy body begins with regular exercise, so My First Skool conducts daily physical activities outdoors for children to practise their gross motor skills with their peers. We also facilitate fine motor skills activities that focus on hand-eye coordination and control of the fingers, enabling children to be more confident with their writing skills.

Aesthetics & Creative Expression

Creating art and aesthetic sense is crucial to a child’s development as they teach problem-solving, creativity, and expression while training gross and fine motor skills. We provide a plethora of art mediums and music activities to facilitate our children’s learning to express and represent their ideas, feelings, and experiences.

Social Emotional Development

Learning to relate with to one another is an essential life skill picked up by children early on as they interact with others. Our children work cooperatively in small groups during classroom activities, allowing them to form relationships, learn socially acceptable behaviour, and to resolve conflicts on their own.

A preschool model for early learners

Designed for children aged between two months and 4 years, the Early Years Centre (EYC) programme guarantees a Kindergarten 1 placement for a five-year-old child in a nearby partnered MOE kindergarten. My First Skool currently has three EYCs in Punggol.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is My First Skool providing a preschool service that caters only to children aged 0 to 4 years?

My First Skool (MFS) is partnering with MOE Kindergartens to provide preschool education for children aged between two months and four years. Under this collaboration, MFS operates an EYC to provide infant care and childcare services. Five and six-year-old children will then continue their Kindergarten 1 (K1) and Kindergarten 2 (K2) programme at a partner MOE Kindergarten. This new model will help to increase the number of quality and affordable preschool places in Punggol, so as to support the needs of young families in the area.

If I decide not to enrol my child in an MOE Kindergarten, will I be guaranteed a place in other MFS centres which provide K1 and K2 classes?

You may request to be transferred to other MFS centres. However, successful enrolment will be dependent on the centre’s vacancies.

Will my child be guaranteed a space in an MOE Kindergarten when he turns 5?

All eligible Singaporean children enrolled in our EYC programme’s nursery class will be guaranteed a K1 place in one of our partnered MOE Kindergartens. Your child will be enrolled in the partnered MOE Kindergarten through a pre-admissions phase of the MOE Kindergarten registration exercise, conducted during their nursery year.
