An increasing number of studies have shown that compared to a traditional learning method where young children are piled with worksheets, a well-rounded curriculum that develops positive behaviour and instills values and virtues that will last a lifetime may very well be what you need during your child’s early years.
One great example lies within the unique MindChamps Curriculum which is developed as a result of over two decades of research in the domains of Education, Neuroscience, Psychology and Theatre. Based on the 3-Mind education model, preschoolers at MindChamps are nurtured to develop a love for learning and the confidence to rise to the challenges and excel in the future.
If you are living in the North-East of Singapore and are keen to find out how your child could benefit from the MindChamps PreSchool experience, here are two centres located near you which you might want to check out.
MindChamps PreSchool @ Buangkok
A short walking distance away from Hougang One and Rosyth Primary School, MindChamps PreSchool @ Buangkok is located conveniently on the second floor of the Popular HQ building. There is a school bus option available for parents as well.
This childcare centre in Singapore spans an impressive 8,000 sq feet. Taking into consideration that MindChamps PreSchool has a lower teacher-student ratio compared to the ratio set by ECDA, this means that there is plenty of space for children to go about their activities without feeling cramped.
There is a spacious gym room where the NeuroMooves™ enrichment classes are conducted, as well as a cheerful indoor playground. Children are allowed to expend their energy while developing their gross motor skills. NeuroMooves™ lets children connect concepts to movement and use their bodies as learning tools.
In this preschool in Singapore, enrichment classes are included as part of the curriculum at no extra cost, rather than as a top-up option. Apart from NeuroMooves™, other enrichment programmes that are included are Creativity & Theatrical Strategies, Music for the Mind™ and Gourmet Moments™ – which are cookery lessons where children learn about recipes and have hands-on experience in preparing dishes.
Large glass windows provide the children with loads of natural light that benefits their development and helps to prevent myopia. Children enrolled at this childcare centre in Singapore will learn how to be articulate, confident and thoughtful young learners.
