Theme Time

Each month our classes are presented with two different topics according to the natural curiosity and interest of the particular age group. Theme class is an important part of our program and children have the opportunity to broaden their learning through different crafts, activities and field trips.

Swimming

The development of Gross Motor Skills is the central idea of Swimming and P.E. class. Co-ordination, balance and the control of body movements are all a part of the P.E. program. The school also offers a large outdoor swimming pool for the children during the warmer seasons!

Dramatic Play

A fun and imaginative way for young children to express themselves through our designated drama program. With the use of props and costumes supplied by the school, they learn to develop key social skills and different ways of expressing their emotions.

Cooking

Children at this age love to do things themselves. The cooking class is a fun approach to introduce the basic principles of cooking, and provide the opportunity for kids to prepare foods and explore the different ingredients. Apart from cooking, kids also learn the importance of healthy eating, food hygiene, and table manners.

Field Trips

Monthly field trips to neighboring sites give children the opportunity to broaden their minds to see, learn, and to explore things with a hands-on approach. Be it an experience at a regional exhibition or a shopping trip to the local market, field trips is always a highlight to the children’s month!

Library

Children are taught the true value of books and the magic that can be found within the pages. As a way of enriching our children’s minds from an early age, the school also offers a weekly “book-exchange”, accompanied by an audio CD, for them to read at home!

Show and Tell

Most kids love to show off their prized possessions, so Show and Tell is a time for them to do just that! This is a great opportunity for kids to learn to speak in front of an audience and boost up self-confidence as they practice communicating feelings and thoughts, and learn to appreciate that of others.

Mandarin Class

children are also introduced to the Chinese Phonetic system at Smart Start. Songs and stories provide the basic introduction of Mandarin for the under 4’s; writing and recognition of simple Chinese characters for the Pre-K age; and the combination of symbols and sounds to create words for the Kindergarten age.

Science

The major goal of our science class is to stimulate and satisfy the natural curiosity of children. We explore every day fun questions, such as Why are the wheels round? What do different animals eat? Or What ingredients make the biggest bubbles? Children are challenged to ask questions and encouraged to experiment!

Art

Arts and craft is employed as a teaching method for the Theme class. Not only does it exercise children’s fine motor skills, it encourages development and learning through creative explorations. Kids are presented with a variety of materials and learn to express through design and play.

Clay

As a part of our fun, hands-on learning culture, we also offer a monthly clay class for our children, with the opportunity to play, mould, and sculpt! The three-dimensional nature of clay allows them to think about structure, shapes and forms, and also encourages their creativity while having fun.
