Preschool (Half Day/Full Day)

The Growing Academy believes in the CHILD as the most important consideration, acknowledging children as competent and capable thinkers and communicators. We draw inspirations from the Reggio Emilia approach in Italy. The learning outcomes refer to the Singapore Ministry of Education’s Nurturing Early Learners.

Nursery

 

Our Nursery class offers a safe and nurturing environment for your child to explore and become independent thinkers and communicators. As the Reggio Emilia approach focuses on classroom environment acting as the third teacher, with meticulous planning and taking into considerations of our children needs, your child will access literacy and numeracy opportunities as well as develop his or her social skills in school.

Our long term goals for our students is to support and enhance their language and literacy capacities. Every activity (music, art, circle time) is carefully crafted to ensure that your child gets the opportunity to express his or her ideas, feelings and thoughts through these classes. With social interactions with their teachers and peers, they build oral language skills and  come to understand writing and reading as valuable communication skills.

To grasp concepts like numbers, shape, approximation, calculation, arrangement and grouping of categories , The Growing Academy places a great emphasis on play skills and observations to support your child in attaining these skills.

Kindergarten

 

In The Growing Academy Kindergarten programme, emphasis shifts from rising methods of the early years to meaningful application of content, skills and concepts.

Your kindergarten child’s developing language competencies are stronger and more purposeful as a tool for communication. Also, with increasing maturity of their physical capabilities, our teachers and therapists are able to hone your child’s fine motor skills and help them take on greater challenges in physical pursuits, and engage in more sophisticated pre-writing and writing experiences.

Expectations for self and social development are prioritized resulting in even greater need of independence, enhanced self-help skills, emotional self-regulation, self-concept and confidence. Our kindergarten programme promotes children’s interests and their natural quest for knowledge; leading to experiences in problem solving, inquiry, investigation, discovery and active hands-on explorations.

In the Kindergarten years, learning is naturally more structured and integrated across multiple disciplines to meet expectations for holistic goals, development of life skills, dispositions and attitudes, as well as academic achievements.
