A wide range of quality literature is provided and children have the opportunity to read for their own interest, pleasure and general knowledge. Fun with Language ™ is specially designed to create highly successful future readers, writers and storytellers through fostering an enjoyment in children of being read quality children’s literature that is brought to life in an engaging and dynamic manner.
Conducted 1 hour a day (½ hr AM & PM) for the Playgroup to Nursery 2 levels, The Love for Chinese Language™ enhances the child’s language communication skills in the areas of reading, listening, engaging and writing. Taught in a fun and interactive way, these lessons involve elements of drama, music, song and movement. Children deepen their understanding of the structures of the Chinese language, while providing themselves with the invaluable ability to communicate with a wider range of people.
Inquiry Moments™ encourage an active learning and thinking approach through which the children construct meaning from experience about the social and physical world that surrounds them. Inquiry Moments™ are demonstrated by wondering, exploring and investigating (collecting data), classifying, analysing, synthesising and theorising. Their developing theories are applied and verified or modified, by expressing their ideas in a variety of mediums through play and reflection.
Numeracy Strategies™ are developed within the program through physical grouping and counting exercises, musical Pre-Numeracy exercises, the physical manipulation of numbers and groups, shapes and patterns, and through calculating and experimenting with combinations of money denominations by participating in ‘real life’ money calculation exercises. The latest research demonstrates that the developing minds of younger children grasp the complexities of the world through experience, experiment and understanding, and the MindChamps International PreSchool approach is ideally suited to help these young minds make the necessary connections to build an understanding of numerical concepts.
