Young learners deserve an exciting beginning on their educational journey. This is why our Early Childhood Programme at OWIS Suntec is designed as an engaging and motivating learning experience for children between the ages of 3 and 6 years.
Early Childhood Education at OWIS Suntec: What to Expect
A Safe and Engaging Preschool Environment
Preschool or kindergarten is often the first classroom experience for children between the ages of 3 and 6, which is why the learning environment must be tailored to their unique needs. At OWIS Suntec, our Early Childhood classrooms are vibrant learning spaces that are designed to be comforting and welcoming. In addition to having classroom centres and play-based learning areas for children to explore, our Early Childhood students also benefit from outdoor time in the Sky Garden.
Growing Knowledge and Skills through Play-Based Learning
OWIS Suntec is a Candidate School for the IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). Our students enjoy our inquiry-led, play-based and well-rounded learning experience that helps them to discover their interests and passions. We underpin our inquiry-based education approach with the learning objectives of the National Curriculum for England, which helps our learners to build a strong foundation in Maths and English. This makes our curriculum a stimulating programme that helps your child prepare for Primary School.
Values-Based Early Childhood Education in Singapore
Over the years, we have built our reputation for our values-based education approach that encourages children to become empathetic, aware and competent learners. At OWIS Suntec, our passionate teachers nurture our core values of kindness and respect for diversity even in our youngest learners. Modelling these values themselves, they endeavour to provide each child with a personalised, nurturing experience during their preschool grades in Singapore.
Well-Rounded Education for Young Learners
Our young learners benefit from our balanced school time-table. They hone their creativity and motor skills through dedicated lessons for Art, Music, and Physical Education. They also expand their knowledge of the world through regular Mandarin lessons. With the unique location of our international school in the city centre of Singapore, our students also enjoy a wide variety of CCAs and exciting field trips to educational attractions.
At OWIS Suntec, your child will be a part of a multicultural, welcoming community and grow in the nurturing learning environment. Come discover what makes our campus ideal for your child.
What are the Benefits of Play-Based Learning?
Stimulating creativity and curiosity
Through play-based activities, our young learners begin to learn independently as well as by collaborating with their classmates. They advance their knowledge and broaden their imagination without even realising it.
Learning by doing
One of the ways in which we implement play-based learning at OWIS Suntec is through carefully planned hands-on activities for our young learners in Early Childhood. For example, playing with measuring cups solidifies the concepts our students learn in Maths or in their Unit of Inquiry.
Develop language and social skills
By playing with their classmates in our diverse classrooms, our students expand their vocabulary in a fun way. They build their developmental skills as they converse and collaborate with other children.
With the agency they are given in our play-based learning approach, our young students in Early Childhood learn to work out minor problems and challenges on their own, with minimum guidance.
“Our daughter is a vibrant, creative individual and finding a school to fit her enthusiastic personality was of utmost importance to us. What we like most about the teaching style at OWIS Suntec is that the school has a strong focus on learning through play and imagination, which is so key in helping my daughter enjoy her learning journey. My daughter has a passionate, engaged teacher, who has helped her thrive as an individual. We also love OWIS’ ethos of kindness. This results in a school culture that is one of acceptance and positivity. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of school.”
