Maths

It emphasizes the development of mathematical concepts from concrete to abstract. It involves interactive hands-on activities that make math fun & challenging.

   

Creative & Enrichment Curriculum

It supports the core curriculum and is more flexible and less structured. This provides a good balance towards all-rounded development.

Music & Movement

The elements of music and movement are interwoven into the teaching of the themes. Some activities are structured to develop coordination skills while others allow greater freedom of expression and individuality.

 

Art & Craft
 

Activities like painting, printing, drawing and simple crafts allow children another medium of expression that is fun and absorbing. Attention is focused on creativity and imagination. There is integration with themes covered in the core curriculum.

Attention is given to the development of gross and fine motor skills. Children have access to a spacious outdoor playground and an inner shady area for other games.
