Our early childhood education English courses help build a strong foundation in literacy skills and phonics awareness to help develop reading and speaking confidence for a smooth transition to Primary 1.
New Nursery enrichment course launching in 2018!
A partnership with the world-famous Aardman animation studios, “Learning Time with Shaun and Timmy” our Nursery programme features engaging lessons based on topics and themes from the episodes of Timmy Time.
Nursery 1 (Learning Time with Shaun and Timmy) - Tampines Centre only
Our Nursery 1 programme will help your child develop an awareness of sounds and sound associations. We aim to build pre-reading and pre-writing skills through fine motor skills development. Your pre-schooler will also develop key social skills, such as managing feelings, relating to others and participating confidently.
Nursery 2 (Learning Time with Shaun and Timmy)
In Nursery 2, your child will be introduced to single letter sounds both orally and in written form. Through class discussions, role plays and speech and drama, your child will develop speaking confidence and creative thinking. Your child will also engage in activities and games that develop an understanding of sharing, listening to others and taking turns, enhancing their socialisation skills.
In K1, your pre-schooler will develop phonic awareness and learn to recognise and pronounce 2-3 letter combinations. High frequency 'tricky words' with irregular spellings will be introduced to help your child start to distinguish some spelling patterns. By the end of the course your child will be able to write and read short sentences accurately. Show and Tell discussions will continue to play a pivotal role in developing speaking confidence and socialisation skills.
By the end of K2, your child will be ready to begin P1. Your child will have a firm grasp of the Jolly Phonics sounds and will be moving towards becoming an independent reader. Through story-related activities, your child will develop comprehension skills and be able to write simple paragraphs. Weekly spelling tests, that cover course content and irregular spellings, will enhance your child's literacy. We encourage more literature-based Show and Tell sessions with the aim of improving your child's comprehension skills as well as speaking confidence.
