Over here at British Council Pre-school, we recognise every child is an individual and is unique, but they share one common trait: they are born ready, able and eager to learn. With this in mind, we strive to provide a stimulating environment where your child can learn by playing and exploring.
We provide a broad curriculum, incorporating the best practices of Singapore and the United Kingdom, aimed at developing the whole child, academically, socially in a bilingual environment. Of course all these would not be possible without the basic provision of a nurturing environment where your child will feel safe and secure.
Language Of Instruction
Our Pre-school curriculum encompasses the areas stipulated in both the Singapore Kindergarten Curriculum Framework (KCF) and the United Kingdom’s Early Years Foundation Years (EYFS):
- Aesthetic and creative expression
- Discovery of the world
- Language and literacy
- Motor skills development
- Social and emotional development
LANGUAGE AND LITERACY:
We have a track record of excellence in English Language teaching. As soon as your child joins the British Council pre-school, he/she will be immersed in a language-rich environment. The multi-sensory Jolly phonics programme will be introduced in stages, complete with hands-on activities and fun games, supported by worksheets where necessary. By the end of K2, the phonic sounds, the technique of blending, formulating sentences, and writing simple stories will all be taught.
SPEECH AND DRAMA:
Besides being a fun activity, these classes help children develop strong communication skills, which will be of use throughout their lives.
Art is a key element for students’ creative development. Children explore colour, texture, shape, form and space in two and three dimensions. They paint, design, draw, make patterns, create collages and explore the work of established artists.
DISCOVERY OF THE WORLD:
Children engage their senses to find out how things work, conducting investigations and manipulating objects. They therefore develop an understanding of the world around them, providing the foundations for learning science, history and geography.
MOTOR SKILLS DEVELOPMENT:
We provide opportunities for children to be active and interactive, and to develop their coordination, control and movement through purposeful play. Carefully planned lessons will hone their skills at different stages.
MUSIC AND MOVEMENT:
Children will enjoy and learn to appreciate a wide range of music, sound and dance. Music and movement is also an enjoyable way to promote gross motor coordination.
Mathematical concepts such as patterning, shapes, size, weight, position, distance, time and money are introduced through hands-on and concrete learning experiences. A strong foundation in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions is also developed.
SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT:
Our “Golden Rules” will be reinforced throughout. Children with a positive sense of themselves in relation to their peers, family and community will respond effectively to challenges they face.
PRIMARY SCHOOL INDUCTION PROGRAMME:
A special primary school induction programme is put in place in Terms 3 and 4 for K2’s. They will be given opportunities to experience new teachin
