download
  • A structured and progressive programme from the U.K. for the initial teaching of music that aims to develop children’s musical skills.
  • Based on the principles of Hungarian music educator, Zoltán Kodály, teaching and learning is done through singing so that children can immediately be music makers without the demands of learning to play an instrument.
  • The key musical skills taught are pulse, rhythm, pitch, musical memory and inner hearing. 
  • K2 classes are also introduced to basic keyboard lessons.
Speech & Drama
  • Speaking and dramatization are the earliest forms of skills that children acquire naturally.
  • By coaching the little drama queens and kings through what they do best, children learn to respect and accept other people’s ideas, characteristics and differences.
  • In the process, your child will become better communicator, more self-confident, creative and expressive.

Malay Language
  • Malay is taught through singing and dancing to the classic and new Malay tunes.
  • Children are also exposed to ‘suku kata’ through flashcards, rhymes and books.
  • Traditional Malay poems and stories are also taught during the lessons.
  •  As a majority of our children are not native speakers of the language, our educators use Music & Movement, and Art & Craft to provide directions in the language and expose them to Malay vocabulary through the demonstration of shapes, colours, strokes and actions in their artwork.

Physical Play
  • Fine-tune their motor skills, coordination skills and sense of balance.
  • Although we do not have the accessibility to a playground, we have instead created our very own indoor play area using motor-skill development equipment including tunnels, tactile paths, steps, hoops, bars and hop-scotch mat
  • Encourage children to strengthen their muscles and stretch their limbs.
Story Time & Library Access
  • To inculcate the love for reading, it is best for children to be exposed to story books from a very young age.
  • Parents and educators play a vital role in encouraging the child to read by first exploring books that are age appropriate and then reading together with the child.
  • Story time is one of our regular activities where we huddle and read a book that is related to our theme for the month, with expression and intonation.
  • Educators take the opportunity to instill good habits in the children and correct misbehaviour in class by selecting relevant titles and discussing the storyline with the children.
  • We allow a child to borrow up to two books home to read at any point in time.
Quiet Time
  • Soft tunes are played in the background to help calm the children while they close their eyes and wind-down in between activities.
  • Lights are turned off to create a less stimulating environment before they are led into the next activity.
Snack Time
  • Learn socially acceptable ethics while eating with their peers – sitting and eating with the correct posture, usage of fingers and cutlery, and raising their hands to request for food in a respectful and appreciative manner.
  • Picky eaters? They may decide to try out food that they would not normally take after observing their friends eating them.
  • Snacks: – fruits, biscuits, buns and non-creamed cakes.
(Those who are allergic to certain ingredients and food items are required to inform the staff upon registration.)
  • We sometimes organise themed parties, such as “fruit party” and “vegetable party” to stir the children’s interest in instilling healthy eating habits.
  • All children must bring along their own water bottle to school as we encourage them to drink water during snack time and in between activities.
  • Children are also taught about personal hygiene – washing their hands before and after meals and eating with their chins over their bowls/ plates.
*To view our full curriculum, please request for the Kinder Champ curricular file from the Management.
Why is Kinder Champ different?
  • The Kinder Champ programme uses flashcards, music and activities which appeal to all types of learners – visual, auditory and kinaesthetic
  • Our engaging and interactive activities promote a sense of security which leads to confidence-building in a child
  • Our holistic programme includes right brain and left brain usage, utilising materials which are home-grown and selected locally and internationally from Australia, the U.S, U.K, Germany and Taiwan, to encourage children to think out of the box, be creative, and encourage critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • To prepare our children to integrate with the national curriculum, our lesson plans incorporate the Standard National Preschool Curriculum.
  • Our team consists of trained and experienced educators who are able to handle children and encourage them to grow and develop positively
  • Positive messages – words and body-gestures to encourage the children are used throughout to ensure a stress-free environment that is healthy for young learners
  • We cater to children of various development levels for instance children in Pre-K can point to the answer when flashed with a card instead of speaking if they are not ready to speak, and children in K1 can read instead of write if they are not ready for writing
  • One-to-one attention – Revisions and assessments are conducted one-on-one basis for language subjects and individual progress report will be furnished to the parents at the end of the year
  • Safety first – We operate from a BOMBA certified building with fire escapes, equipped with fire extinguishers and first aid kits, and our educators are certified first-aiders to handle emergencies.  Fire drills are held periodically to ensure our staff and children are able to evacuate in orderly manner in case of emergency.
  • Clean and safe environment – Our wooden flooring ensures that dust and dirt can be cleaned and removed easily.  Our floors and toilets are kept cleaned and washed regularly with antiseptic agents.
  •  Screening of children’s temperature upon arrival – To minimise the spread of virus from one child to another, we do a brief check of the child’s overall health upon arrival such as taking the temperature of the child and a quick visual assessment on spots and bumps on the body.  Parents must inform the school if their child is sick or has contracted any sort of viral infection.  We seek parents’ cooperation to abstain their child from school if he/she is down with a viral infection.
