Music and art activities are equally important as books and physical activities.
Under Carl Orff Approach, music and art activities are not only another venue where your child can express his artistic but also a natural platform for the child to learn from.
Through listening, singing, playing and acting out rhymes and stories on our musical sessions and music activities, children at Sovereign Star Preschool will develop verbal, perceptual, numeric, spatial and motor skills.
We have highly trained staff to plan and provide music around your children’s interests and a wide range of quality musical instruments as our daily music instruments.
Children are welcome and encouraged to participate at their own level to be creative and to develop a holistic approach for their learning.
Science and technology
We endeavor to provide a wide range of early education opportunities for children to participate in project work, and to develop their investigative and research skills.
We plan for and set up outdoor activities and environments that encourage and support active movement and physical play.
For instance, our playground has been designed with a natural, sustainable and ‘hands-on’ approach, which children can explore and develop strategies of concepts of growth and life within the garden and concepts of building and constructions at our carpentry table, whereas the indoor computer and science table will encourage and enable children to create and develop their early learning and problem solving skills.
Imaginative and social play
Pretend play does not end in toddlerhood. It continuous and becomes refined during preschool years.
Some of the examples are through cooking, gardening and family role play to learn how to respect and protect their environment.
Pretending to be a fireman and rescuing people from a fire, or a princess living in a castle is allowing them to practice things and events that they may not be able to experience in real life but prepare their social and emotional well-being.
Sometimes we introduce words or phrases from a different language and culture, such as English, German and Chinese.
This helps children to be aware of the cultural diversity around them while promotes better lives of children and better vocabulary while stimulating their minds.
Unstructured play and learning through playing
With all the myriad of fun learning activities we offer at the centre, we know the value of free or unstructured play.
For instance, puzzles and a wide range activities and games are provided for children to play with while at the same time they learn and apply the rules.
We also incorporate real life learning experiences for older preschoolers by going on excursions to extend their research and learning about the current classroom focus.
