As you probably know, mama, preschool plays a huge role in influencing children’s attitudes toward education and learning. Here’s how Blue House brings learning to life in a real, yet magical, way.
How do you prepare your little ones for the many steps they will need to take in life? Each step in a child’s educational development is important, but the very first one they take is probably the most important of all.
That’s why at Blue House Nursery & International Preschool the focus is on giving each individual child the very best start. Blue House is often asked how their focus on open-ended experiences really prepares a child. The answer is simple: they provide the skills a child will need for life, not just their next step.
Blue House was the pioneer in introducing the world-renowned Reggio Emilia approach to Singapore, and with their beautiful, stimulating classroom environments Blue House invites every child into a world of wonder and unlimited possibilities.
We’ve all heard the story of the child who’d rather play with the box or the packaging than the shiny new toy. Have you asked yourself why that is? It’s because the box has unlimited potential and inspires their curiosity. The child gets the opportunity to delve deep into their imagination. A box can be anything a child wants it to be, bringing a sense of adventure and excitement to their play.
The learning environment at Blue House is based on the need for children to satisfy their natural curiosity. And so, mamas, learning comes to life at Blue House, opening up a world of creative thinking, theory testing, research and investigation.
Educators at Blue House act as observers guiding children and adding value to what they are learning. Parents are encouraged to play an active part in the school community, adding their own individual knowledge and experience. Above all else, the uniqueness of each child is greatly valued.
One of the best ways to demonstrate how a childhood full of open-ended experiences at Blue House prepares children for life is through a quote from Carlina Rinaldi, Director of the Municipal Infant-Toddler Centers and Preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy.
“When your child asks, Why is there a moon? do not reply with some scientific answer. Ask, What do you think? This way your child gets the message that his or her thoughts and ideas are important. You and the child go on a journey together, sharing the wonder, curiosity, pain – everything.”
It is the process, not the answers, which are important for kids at Blue House, mamas.
