5 Ways Teachers at This Preschool Bring Learning to Life

LearnPost Category - LearnLearn - Post Category - SchoolsSchools

Encouraging bilingual learning, natural elements and lots of discovery

Looking for a preschool that encourages interactive learning and has a great bilingual programme to boot? The Little Skool-House is just the school for that! This well-known preschool (and infant care centre!) proves its unique approach to teaching new themes and concepts with real, concrete materials and incorporation of Chinese literacy are what makes its system work so well for so many kiddos. Read on to find out just how they pull it off!

1. Curious Works Corner
The many learning corners and spaces in each classroom enable children to explore at their own pace. Teachers source for interesting materials for children to discover, and invite them to take charge of their own discovery process. In K1, students are tasked with planting seeds to grow their own plants and observe the process. They are then encouraged to write down their observations for each day, like spotting that a new leaf has sprouted or if a flower has bloomed.

2. Introducing natural elements for a warm and visually appealing environment
The Little Skool-House has made it a point to set up every space to resemble a garden! Branches and recycled materials are used to create the ‘hanging garden’ look, with real plants lining the walls to add a touch of nature to every classroom. Children’s artwork are also being hung from vines to incorporate the nature theme.

3. Interesting Chinese Literacy Stations
To support and extend every child’s learning, English and Chinese literacy stations are set up in the Preschool Years classrooms. These stations encourage the use of various literacy strategies, and aim to enable children to be co-creators of their own learning. Both English and Chinese teachers work together to teach similar themes in each language so students can have equal opportunities to grasp both languages.

4. Eye-hand coordination and development of fine motor skills
The set-up in some classrooms at The Little Skool-House was designed to support the children’s development of eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. The play area above allows children to engage in different activities such as:

  • Tying rubber bands onto a geoboard not only encourages fine motor skills, children will also learn about shapes during this process
  • Stacking same coloured egg-shaped objects teaches them about the concept of 1-to-1 matching
  • Colourful hooks can also be used to develop fine motor skills in children as they try to hook them together

5. Cosy reading corners
A warm and welcoming reading area is an important feature in every The Little Skool-House classroom. They help children find a life-long love of books, and encourage children to not only read for knowledge, but for enjoyment too. Teachers carefully develop a reading environment with book displays, libraries and cosy reading areas with up-to-date books with attractive and inviting stories and titles.
