Pre-Nursery / Nursery 1

At this stage of development, the children are full of curiosity, and are keen to explore their environment, interact with the world around them and meet people.

Our structured programmes for Pre-Nursery and Nursery 1 children include daily routines which help enhance their learning through a Growth Mindset, develop self-confidence, communication and social skills, as well as promote self-control and regulation of emotions. As children become familiar with the routines, they are able to participate to the best of their abilities, and enjoy the fun activities lined up each day.

Striking a nice balance between routines and flexibility is key to ensure each child’s needs are met and everyone is able to grow and benefit optimally from our programmes and return home happy every day!
