MOE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK
Following the framework of MOE, our curriculum fosters the holistic development of children through these six recommended learning areas:
Language & Literacy
Discovery of the World
Aesthetics and Creative Expressions
Motor Skills Development
Social & Emotional Development
Using themes as an integrative approach enable children to make meaningful connections across all learning areas.
Our curriculum themes are divided into four main domains, providing a systematic approach for children to make sense of their learning and of their world:
- Focusing on individual and getting to know oneself before learning to accept others and things
- Emerging from self to the exploration of the community he/she lives in.
- Progressing from the community to discover the effects of society in how these play an essential role
in developing the society.
- A strong emphasis on values help bond the individual, community and society.
Besides equipping children with the knowledge and skills, it is essential to nurture learning dispositions in children as they begin their journey as life-long learners. Dispositions are important for life-long learning and can be encapsulated in the acronym, PRAISE which is a teaching resource designed by MOE:
Children are encouraged not to give up but to persevere through to complete given tasks despite the challenges.
Children get to think and reflect about what they have done, seen, heard or felt in their daily experiences, gaining new knowledge about themselves and of the things that they had learnt.
Children learn to listen, recognize, appreciate and respect the diversity of the personal qualities of others.
Children discover and explore various ideas and possibilities, experimenting with different ways of doing things and generating solutions to challenges.
Sense of Wonder and Curiosity
Nurturing the sense of wonder and curiosity allows children to engage in the world around them, prompting them to ask questions and finding answers through discovering and exploration.
Helping children stay engaged allows them to immerse in learning and enjoying what they do, thereby allowing them to seek new learning opportunities spontaneously.
