Something we’ve always loved about the New Year: new opportunities and new adventures. Is your child ready to take the plunge into education by beginning preschool mama? Or perhaps you’re looking to make a fresh start at a school that’s a better fit for your little one?
Either way, you’ve got to check out British Council Pre-school. You and your munchkin will get the best of both worlds with a daily, bilingual 3-hour programme available for kiddos in Nursery through Kindergarten.
What sets British Council apart is that it adopts best educational practices from both Singapore and the UK. Classes are small and facilitated by two co-teachers – each one fluent in English or Mandarin – ensuring a learning environment that’s at once international and local.
British Council Pre-school’s play-based learning techniques incorporate the best bits from an array of educational philosophies, including Montessori, High-Scope and Inquiry-based approaches.
The school’s unique curriculum encompasses both Singaporean and British early education frameworks, with emphasis on themes like Language and Literacy; Social and Emotional Development; Numeracy; and Aesthetic and Creative Expression, plus a special focus on Mandarin through activities like stories, songs, games and role-play that develop children’s communication skills. Along the way your child will also hone those all-important motor skills, mama!
And it’s nothing but the best for littlies when it comes to facilities! British Council Pre-school offers all the latest learning technologies, like interactive whiteboards and digital visualisers. Meanwhile, a large indoor playground and custom-designed furniture encourage further playing and learning, all while keeping every munchkin safe and secure.
As great a time as the kiddos will be having, parents needn’t feel left out! Communication with parents is of the utmost importance, and class teachers provide weekly updates of each child’s activities through the easily accessible digital School Management System.
The school is based in British Council’s sparkly new Tampines centre, with daily classes available in 3-hour morning or afternoon sessions. Enrol your kiddos now for the 2015 intake and receive a free welcome pack.
Even better, pre-existing or former British Council enrichment customers will enjoy a 10% discount off the 2015 Pre-school programme fee (you must sign up for the full year to get this perk, mama!). British Council Pre-school is also Baby Bonus eligible, which is huge for help offsetting the payment of school fees and approved related expenses.
