Our Kids views education as an aid and a preparation for life. We believe that every child is capable of achieving their full potential, when provided with the right environment, materials and guidance.
The Montessori method is a child-centered educational approach that encourages children towards independence, order and a freedom to explore but with boundaries. By encouraging self-directed and hands-on experiences in the prepared environment with the prepared educators, children can maximize their individual learning outcomes and achieve their potentials. There are 5 major areas in Montessori Cycle 1 learning experiences: practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics and cultural education.
We provide funded kindergarten program in our Kinder room. Our aim for the Kinder room is to get the children ready for school and life. We adopt both play-based and Montessori learning programs in the kinder room allow the encouragement of greater independence. We have two bachelor qualified kinder teachers and one Montessori 3-6 years old directress in our kinder room to run 3 and 4 years old kindergarten program and Montessori Cycle 1. All other educators in our kinder room have their assistant certificate.
Various kinds of incursions and excursions are conducted throughout the year to enrich children's learning experiences and nurture children's respect and understanding of the world around them. Besides the academic achievements that we focus on to get the kinder children ready for school, we also put strong emphasis on children's social and emotional wellbeings.
Our aim for the toddler room is to help the children set up routines. But we understand that every child is an individual and they develop at their own paces. So both the routines and the program for the Toddler room are flexible and versatile.
We have our indoor and outdoor programs for the children aiming at promoting children's physical, cognitive, social, emotional and language development based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which emphases on play-based learning. We provided resources down to children's level so they can choose, design and implement the activities based on their interests and developmental needs. We use various methods to stimulate and evoke children's curiosity and interests so they are able to invent and direct the focus of self-initiated, age appropriate play and organize and make sense of their social work.
