All learning activities are presented through play and engaging class activities. These activities allow the children to explore experiment, imitate, ask questions and be questioned to further enhance their thinking and problem solving skills.

Philosophy

We believe children learn best…

  • in a secured, consistent, disciplined and clean environment;
  • in an atmosphere which celebrates the joys of everyday life;
  • by exploring concepts through hands on activities;
  • by exploring concepts through hands on activities;

Curricular Offering


Toddler and Nursery

As early as two and three years old, children could already express themselves with minds that are like sponge which can easily absorb what we impart to them. Aside from the academic subjects such as Reading, Language, Math and Science, and Chinese, children are made aware of their surroundings starting with themselves such as having the sense of body image and their increasing independence in caring for their own needs like using the bathroom, washing hands, etc. From themselves, we then move on to making them be aware of the people around them. We teach and measure how well they can get along with adults and other children. Here, we can see their ability to play with other children, follow classroom rules, and take turns and even sharing.


Kinder 1 and 2

At these levels, children are taught to be more independent, not only in doing different activities but with their decision making as well. Here, concepts in Reading, Language Arts, Math, Filipino and Chinese are thoroughly discussed to ensure that children can cope up with the class or even in Grade 1. Lessons are also taught more comprehensively as the teachers make use of different kinds of manipulative enhancing their understanding of a certain topic, hence, all of our activities are child-centered and are mostly sensorial in nature. Kids are also given the chance to express themselves through recitations and engaging themselves with different activities related to the lessons being taught in class. They also get to enjoy learning outside their classrooms as we also focus on developing their gross motor skills. With this, we don’t only have our regular P.E. exercises but we also let the kids go around our school to help them explore their surroundings more.
