Our teachers are trained to incorporate the S.M.I.L.E.S.™ elements into lessons and activities, which can be conducted both in the classroom and outdoors. This enables them to provide a holistic learning experience for your child.

How We Bring Our Curriculum to Life

At MindChamps Early Learning & PreSchool, your child will be actively involved in the learning process, which helps to develop his/her thinking skills.

Through our unique Enquiry Teaching and Learning™ approach, we help to foster your child’s curiosity about the topics of discussion by encouraging him/her to ask questions that will lead to an enquiry exploration. Our teachers facilitate lessons whilst allowing the children to explore the various sides and possibilities to a question. Teachers also observe the interests of the children and plan their lessons and activities accordingly, incorporating the S.M.I.L.E.S.™ elements to provide a holistic learning experience.

Lessons are conducted in small groups, allowing teachers to address questions that result from the learning process. These questions can then be extended to another exploration. Along the way, your child and his/her peers will also have the opportunity to reflect on the challenges faced and how they worked together to resolve them. This allows children to truly understand what it means to give and take as they collaborate to problem-solve together.

Enquiry Teaching and Learning

Enquiry Teaching and Learning™ is a unique approach developed by MindChamps PreSchool that encourages children to be curious about subject topics and ask questions that will lead to an enquiry exploration.

Lessons start off with the teacher asking the children questions and then taking in their responses to lead the class into an enquiry teaching and learning process. Upon observing the children’s interests, the teacher will plan lessons that allow the children to explore new ideas while developing their thinking skills. The teacher will also make sure that lessons planned incorporate the S.M.I.L.E.S.™ elements and meet the interests and learning needs of different children.

Numeracy Strategies™

To build a solid foundation in mathematics during the early years, our Numeracy Strategies™ programme focuses on helping your child build an understanding of numerical concepts. Your child will be introduced to mathematical concepts through physical grouping and counting exercises, musical pre-numeracy activities as well as hands-on activities that involve calculating and experimenting with combinations of money denominations.
