Kindergarten Curriculum

At OWIS Digital Campus in Punggol, our kindergarten curriculum is meticulously designed to weave active play into the fabric of learning, making education both meaningful and enjoyable for young minds.

We believe that young, preschool-aged children learn best when engaged in immersive, active play with their peers, and each aspect of our curriculum is designed around this central belief.

This unique approach not only covers core concepts such as letters, numbers, and inquiry into the world around them but does so in a manner that captivates and motivates children, fostering an active and participative learning environment.

Our philosophy ensures a holistic development in early childhood that encourages inquiry, fosters creativity, and promotes international mindedness.

Benefits of Play-Based Learning for Young Learners

Children at play are carefree and joyful — and in reality, the activities they engage in during this time are anything but frivolous. These are just a few of the benefits of play-based learning in our Early Childhood grades (equivalent to kindergarten) in OWIS Digital Campus in Punggol.

Play Encourages Cognitive Development

Play Encourages Cognitive Development

While children are exploring the world around them through play, they are starting to make those first powerful connections to the real world. For example, if they play with magnetised blocks, they start understanding how magnets work. Nearly every type of toy in our Early Childhood classroom is designed to be fun and inviting while simultaneously sparking new connections and ideas.

Play Can Improve a Child's Emotional Well-Being

Children who are able to play and explore within the classroom environment will be less stressed or anxious than those in a more structured, rigid preschool setting. Play helps to build their confidence and gives them an introduction to the social norms of classroom life.

Play Expands the Imagination

Two children can play with the same toy but experience it in totally different ways. In our Early Childhood classrooms at all our campuses, we have found that role-playing centres and dress-up areas are ideal for igniting the imagination of even the youngest learners.

Play Promotes Literacy

Music, dancing, and movement play an integral role in any preschool learning environment, and these forms of play can help children develop their language skills. This is particularly important in our multicultural environment, where some children may not be native speakers of the language spoken in the classroom.

Play Allows Children to Develop Their First Social Connections

Play Allows Children to Develop Their First Social Connections

While playing with their peers, our learners in Early Childhood will start to learn the pivotal social skills that will carry them through their lives. They will discover their shared interests, have disagreements, develop problem-solving strategies, and form lasting bonds with their newfound friends.

Play Encourages Independence

For many, their early childhood education in Singapore is their first classroom experience. Being able to learn and play in a small, welcoming environment will give them the confidence they need to become more independent, and they will soon be navigating the classroom with ease.
