Our Nursery programs are structures as full-day and half-day childcare options.
Moving up is always an exciting time, most especially the ones from pre-nursery to nursery 1. During that time, your child can express thoughts through words or exhibit emotions in many ways. You will then be amazed at how quickly your child can pick up words, phrases, songs, and rhymes. That’s why we make sure that our Nursery 1 programs provide a range of activities that are as endless as your child’s imagination.
Our activities, with the A-S-K framework, includes the building of creativity, language skills and concept knowledge alongside character and attitudes. Such activities are like construction and block-building, painting and drawing, outdoor and indoor gross motor play that’s coupled with dramatic play and dress-ups, puzzles, music, movement, singing, and drama. Games, reading, and story-telling also aid to promote social interactions and relationship skills development.

Questioning and Problem Posing
Thinking About your Thinking (Metacognition)
Through daily routines, direct teaching, animation stories, situational practices, games, and crafts, we immerse your children into effective and positive attitudes when it comes to problem-solving and self-regulation. These activities make sure that they are equipped with leadership, observation, creative, quick-thinking, adaptable, and resilient skills. Eventually, these traits will become the cornerstones of their character growth and valuable assets in their lifelong journey.
Our Chinese curriculum further reinforces Habits of Mind through the association with the famous Chinese teachings of “Di Zi Gui” ( 弟子规). Through these, children are able to embrace and practice the habits that were introduced to them in a meaningful way.
For our Nursery 2 program, we understand the upgraded and updated needs of the children. It provides opportunities for children to expand their repository of knowledge while cultivating their strengths and interests and building rock-solid academic foundations at the same time. During this age, children embark on a structure 3-year UK phonics program which is Rigby Star Phonics to help them acquire skills to blend and decode words in their early reading adventures.
The goal of the Nursery 2 program is to complete all the letter sounds before progressing to digraphs and trigraphs subsequently. Children also learn more about learning, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension. It’s also aimed to build the children’s Numeracy concepts and number sense through games and activities that build their passion for learning.
Since Nursery 2 children are supposed to step it up a little, we also catered our programs to cope up with their needs. Our Reggio Emilia inspired project inquiry does just this. These methods of learning have previously been incorporated into Pre-Nursery and Nursery 1 curriculum. However, for the Nursery 2 program, children are now able to fully experience the benefits of the project inquiry approach. They are given more autonomy to choose topics of their interest. Through this, they are encouraged to actively engage in class discussions and group work. Aside from that, we also offer field learning experiences by exposing the children to field trips, interviews, and experiments. With 2 English and 2 Chinese projects in a year, children will have ample opportunities for them to apply what they have learned through the investigation, documentation, and dramatization through different forms of project presentations.
