Our Centre

Nursery

Our practice in the nursery room is greatly influenced by Pikler Approach to raising healthy babies. This approach is based on renowned Hungarian pediatrician Emmi Pikler's research into gross motor development and emphasizes treating babies with respect. 

Here are our guiding principles…

Full Attention – especially when involved in the Caring activity.

Slow Down.

Build Trust, and your Relationship, during the Caring activity times.

Babies are never put into a position which they cannot get into by themselves.

Allow babies uninterrupted time for play.

Babies send us cues all the time. Tune in respectfully.

Simply said, Dr. Pikler reminded us that babies are unique individuals and we should treat them as one.

Toddlers Room

Toddlers are naturally inquisitive and busy, our programme for toddlers have taking into account for their not being fully independent, curiosity, short concentration span and their love for getting involved.  Inspired by Reggio philosophy, children in this room will be encouraged to make decision for their own learning, they will be encouraged to communicate their ideas and will be given the opportunity to test their own hypothesis.  Through this, toddlers will communicate and test their own ideas and gain confidence in the process. 

We also understand that toddlers are still young, that’s why it is still important for us to be there for them and support them in situations that they are unable to resolve yet.  We will encourage them to develop friendship and try new things.  We will also ensure that we are there to support them when they need us.  

How do we achieve this?

Preschool Room

Preschoolers come in all shapes and sizes, they are full of ideas and energy and eager to discover new things.  At this age, they hunger for new information and experiences and the opportunity to try their ideas out.  They are also eager to show us what they understand about our world and what they can do and often need recognition for their effort.

Inspired by Reggio philosophy, children in this room will be encouraged to make decision for their own learning, they will be encouraged to communicate their ideas and will be given the opportunity to test their own hypothesis.  We will also encourage our preschoolers to share their knowledge with peers or someone younger, we believe when they passing on their knowledge, they will gain recognition and self-confidence.
