2 months – 3 years old
It’s never too early to start learning. Research has shown that quality experiences in the early years promote a child’s long-term development socially and emotionally. Thus, our Skool-Educare© Curriculum was developed to maximise the potential of every child’s earliest years. Adopting a relationships-based approach, the curriculum places an emphasis on the interaction, attachment and trust between young children and their teachers. The relationships-based approach comprises of three domains:
Thinking and Communicating Self
Confident, curious and involved learners
Have a strong sense of identity, know their preferences
Mindfulness, well-being and competency
Instead of a traditional teacher-directed learning approach, our learning process focuses on the development, well-being and active involvement of children. This helps to nurture them to become resilient and independent children.
2 months to 17 months
A primary caregiver helps each child develop a sense of security and confidence to explore and learn about their environment. Infants are given ample opportunities to discover and construct knowledge through a variety of sensorial activities, such as playing with paint and dough. As they begin to communicate with people around them, our teachers facilitate their development by responding to their cues.
18 months to 30 months
Toddlers are often encouraged to use their five senses as tools to make observations and discover the characteristics of objects around them. With a child-initiated approach, learning is fostered based on interest, allowing children to make choices among carefully planned curriculum activities.
30 months to 3 years
Playgroup children are at the age where they are looking for more independence, and those with a sense of security, trust and self-confidence tend to learn better. This can be developed through fostering bonds with teachers. The curriculum gives these children the opportunity to choose their activities based on their interest and needs, and then interact and extend their learnings.
