East Coast mamas, rejoice! Premier bilingual childcare, Little Paddington Preschool is set to open a new campus in Siglap this February
If you remember hearing us rave about Little Paddington Preschool Tanglin’s amazing facilities last year, we’re back with news – an equally impressive campus is coming to the East Coast next month! Little Paddington Preschool East Coast is set to start classes on 15 February 2019, opening its world-class facilities to a brand new batch of kiddos.
Rooted in holistic education, Little Paddington Preschool is known for their award-winning curriculum, benchmarked against internationally-acclaimed pedagogies including Reggio Emilia, Montessori, project-based learning and a thematic approach. Little Paddington Preschool promotes an educational culture of collaboration, focusing on the child as an active and competent learner, whilst celebrating the active role of their third teacher – the environment.
Every one of their campuses is created with child-led, exploratory and enquiry-based learning in mind, and the new East Coast campus is no different. You’ll find large outdoor spaces that play host to weekly gardening sessions, and even a chance to feed and play with birds and bunnies at the petting zoo. There’s also a huge sand pit and water play once a week, a highlight of every child’s school experience!
Little Paddington is also known for their ateliers, which foster creativity in arts, crafts, music, cooking, science and even in developing cultural dexterity. The United Nations Atelier engages children in an array of activities relating to different countries, encouraging intercultural-intelligence to foster community cohesion.
With years of experience in early education (all teachers have specialised degrees and diplomas in Preschool Education), the passionate Little Paddington Preschool team strives to maintain international and local standards in their schools. The highly effective teaching team in each class includes one English teacher and one Chinese teacher. The team applies innovation, warmth and creativity to help develop every child’s interest and individuality. The small class numbers and low student-teacher ratio also ensures each student gets the utmost attention from each of their teachers!
Hear from Little Paddington’s Cluster Principal, Eileen Chan:
“I have been in early childhood education for over 30 years and in those years, I have seen educational fads come and go. Through all that, there is one constant and that constant is that children are entitled to a safe environment and loving adults who nurture and enable them to reach their fullest potential. As an educator and a parent, I believe that we need to look at the world our children are growing into and help them develop the ‘new smarts’ required to succeed in this brave new world.
What is this new smart? It is when cognitive learning is paired with social and emotional learning. As the Cluster Principal at Little Paddington, I can say with confidence that our commitment to our children goes beyond books. One of the cornerstones of our curriculum’s objective is to develop traits such as self-awareness, self-control, confidence, optimism, perseverance and a growth mindset – that is the belief that effort matters and that intelligence is not fixed. All of which are traits that brain science has identified as predictors of success in school and in life.”
Little Paddington Preschool has won numerous awards, among them: Best Preschool Asia Award, Singapore Child Best Preschool Award, Best Inquiry Based and Experiential Award, SPARK certification and Platinum Award from Health Promotion Board.
