Inquiry Mind

Play-based approach for our Early Years

Play is not just fun, it’s fundamental! Play is a natural process for children in their early years to explore, discover and learn. Our Early Years Programme engages in purposeful play, multi-sensorial and experiential activities that encourage the discovery and exploration of our children’s surroundings, allowing opportunities for learning and growth.

Inquiry-based approach for our Preschool Years

Believing that a child is an active learner, Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse adopts an inquiry-based approach to engage our preschoolers. As they become constructors of knowledge and igniting their inquisitiveness, children acquire knowledge needed for formal schooling as well as competency skills essential to face future challenges in the global landscape.
Exploration and Reflection

Aim to inspire curiosity and creativity, Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse taps into the children’s innate desire to explore and discover the world around them. Our child-led play sessions, PlayTinkers, encourage exploration, foster imagination, develop decision-making and problem-solving skills. The curriculum also features reflective journaling through the Bear Walk Movement programme. With a strong emphasis in developing a cosmopolitan child and cultivating cultural cognizance, our International Cuisine and Cultural Day is celebrated termly where our children embrace and learn more about a different chosen country each term through unique cuisines, traditional music, dance and art.

Language Arts

Kiddiwinkie’s language arts programmes seek to develop the children’s linguistic literacy coupled with a literacy-rich environment. Awarded with the Reading Innovation Award (Distinction) by the National Library Board, our individualized reading programme Super Readers, Super Heroes is tailored to meet each child’s reading ability and interest.

Enrichment

With a holistic development in mind, our enrichment programmes cover from sports, dance to arts. FIITercise, a gym and sports programme aims to promote a healthy lifestyle habits and sportsmanship; Dancing Toes exposes our children to various forms and genres of dance – from the foundations of Classical Ballet, Jazz and Hip Hop; while Artsy Fingers celebrates the artist in every child through their artworks inspired from nursery rhymes, literature and famous artists.

Bilingualism

In today’s globalised society, we understand the importance of bilingualism. With a focus on the conversational aspect of Mandarin, we develop our children’s oral, reading, writing and presentation skills by introducing everyday topics and themes.

Japanese and Korean are also being offered as a Mother Tongue for our foreign students with in-house native teachers. Third language is also offered as a language enrichment course for our local students.
