Whole Language Approach
We are convinced that teaching languages used in a social context or applied in real situations can help enhancing children's reading, writing and listening skills. Hence, teachers always act as storytellers and further require children to role-play and perform discussions.
In addition to activities, classrooms in our school are also equipped with language corners, which can let children learn vocabularies via wonderful decorations and interesting mini-games.
We conducts children-centered, inquiry-based learning activities with children based on their abilities and interests, which allows them to explore and understand the relationships between objects, build knowledge, cultivate curiosity, establish multidimensional and logical thinking, and improve problem-solving skills through interactions with their surroundings and first-hand experiences. This will lay the foundation for their lifelong learning.
The SMART writing formula utilizes sensory integration activities to build concentration, rhythm and posture; arts and crafts activities to improve grip strength and coordinated pen control. It uses effective methods to facilitate learning and makes use of teaching materials to aid with visual-spatial coordination, thus allowing children to establish a solid foundation prior to writing.
The school stress children's emotions education by providing environment for growth and teachers-children relationship filled with love, trust, safety, and happiness, stable daily routines and patterns for rest and activities, and by building children's sense of security, self-understanding and responsiveness to self and others' emotions and by fostering children's positive self-image and attitudes towards learning and living.
The school focuses on the all-rounded development of children. We provide appropriate life skills training to children of different ages and developmental stages, in order to enhance their hand-eye coordination, abilities to use both hands, fingers flexibility, and thus their overall self-care abilities.
