Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Personal, social and emotional development is an important part of early childhood development as it contributes to the full personal development of a young child and extends a person’s ability to respond effectively to daily life challenges.

Listening, Speaking and Reading

Our Literacy Program enables children to communicate effectively – the ability to communicate effectively is essential for any learning to take place. It focuses on teaching children to listen, understand, recall and respond appropriately to different situations.

At the end of pre-primary education, our learners are able to communicate confidently using age-appropriate language, have a good knowledge of the phonemes taught and are able to build three letter words. Children can also recognise sight words and are able to read picture books with simple captions.


This learning area develops a growing understanding of problem solving and numbers, through stories, songs, games and play. Learners should become comfortable with numbers, counting, shapes, patterns and use of appropriate Mathematical language. Through the Singapore Maths teaching model (, the school has consistently witnessed strong foundation in Mathematics for all our learners.

Physical Development

Physical development includes both gross and fine motor skills. Gross motor development refers to the activities that stimulate and strengthen the development of large muscles to facilitate balance, coordination, body awareness, reaction time and locomotion. Fine motor development focuses on the small muscles required for manipulating small objects and tools.

Leadership & Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship starts with building learners’ self-esteem, independence and problem-solving skills thus building a good foundation that enables the learners to grasp some business concepts. Our learners are smart enough to be trained in the confidence-rich, risk-taking spirit required to start businesses. This learning area gives the learners the opportunity to grasp business topics at an early age through a structured program and activities.
