At Cambridge Pre-school, we recognise the need to envisage the future world that your child will live and work in. We would not know what specific skills would be needed for future jobs that do not exist in this day and age, but we can prepare your child by equipping him/her with uniquely human skills that are not easily replaceable by robots, such as the ability to innovate, problem-solve and think creatively and critically. Our Award-winning curriculum exposes your child to iSTEAM (Innovation, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and has been designed to develop these essential future skills in fun and age-appropriate ways to prepare him/her for future success. iSTEAM embraces the philosophy of “thinking with hands” and consists of hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration of interesting topics which will prepare your child for the future.
#1 Cultivate Future Skills through iSTEAM
For the toddlers to Nursery 2, iSTEAM is embedded into everyday experiences through developmentally appropriate hands-on activities that are concrete and related to the world around them. By tapping on your child’s innate curiosity and sense of wonder about the world, your child will be given opportunities to explore, inquire, learn and innovate in little ways. This will set the foundation for progression into the iSTEAM curriculum at Kindergarten 1 and 2 levels. By the time your child enters Kindergarten 1, your child would be ready to take on bigger projects that require higher cognitive skills. Our iSTEAM curriculum will enable your child to investigate, innovate, make comparisons and predictions, test out ideas and share discoveries with their peers.
#2 Develop Academic Skills
Our English, Chinese and Literacy curriculum goes beyond teaching children how to read and write. Our literacy-rich environment provides children with experiences to integrate listening, speaking, reading and writing into their everyday activities. Children have many opportunities to enjoy books, build vocabulary, articulate their thoughts in front of an audience, and practise creative writing. These additional skills build up your child’s confidence and enable your child to be lifelong readers, writers and communicators.
#3 Nurture Unique Talents through MI
We believe that each child is unique with different talents. Some children are good with language, others with numbers, music or art. There are also children who are good with people skills. In this competitive world, we nurture your child’s unique talents to give him or her, a competitive edge, especially in the future world. Besides, knowing that he or she is good at something is a great confidence booster and being confident will benefit other areas of life.
