Our Approach

Programme Overview

The Playgroup Curriculum & Le Jardin d'Eveil (The Awakening Garden) are programmes that aim to provide a fun and healthy environment for toddlers to learn best through play. They are designed on learning centres that capitalize on toddler's natural need to explore. Learning Centres give the chance to gain experience through exploration. The approach is to let the child experiment with their own ideas in a hands-on manner; it enhances the child's individuality and creativity.

Learning Centres

Imaginative Play

Manipulative

A multi sensory learning area that exercises problem-solving and critical thinking skills. It helps with building self-confidence and promotes creative thinking.

Early Numeracy

Early Literacy

A learning corner equipped with writing materials for children to explore early writing in a fun and interactive way.

Art Corner

Advantages of Learning Centres

  • Discipline problems are reduced because groups are limited to a number which can reasonably function in each area.

  • Class management is easier since toddlers are in the area of their choice and interest.

  • Children are engaged in hands-on activities as they explore and experiment.

  • Facilitators can support children by supplying the resources as they learn by themselves.

  • Facilitators can determine, by observation, the progress of the children.

  • Facilitators can easily determine what items need to be added to each area that will encourage children in further discovery.

  • Children understand classroom rules more easily when they apply to specific areas.

  • Each area contains only the essentials that allow children to control and create.

  • The purpose of the area is clear and understandable to children.
