In the preschool years, our curriculum, adapted from the Ministry of Education (MOE) – ‘Nurturing Early Learners’ guide and ‘I teach’, aims to facilitate learning not only the basic academic skills such as reading, writing and numeracy skills but also the development of broader cognitive skills among young children, such as the ability to ask questions, to begin thinking for themselves, to explore and to sort out puzzles- ‘problem solving’.

Our children will also be involved in activities of other domains that are equally important in the early years, that is, in the areas of a child's moral, social, emotional and physical development.
