Excellent Academic Foundation
4 Keys Principles & Beliefs
The excellent academic foundation focuses on 4 key principles and beliefs, grounded in theories and research in early childhood education and personal development.
Each lesson is planned to allow children to explore all areas of the curriculum and prepare them for their future schooling. They follow the lessons which lead them to work and explore individually and within a group.
1) A Stimulating, Learning Environment Reflects
the holistic way children learn and grow
• Planning activity centers to facilitate exploration and play that encourage peer group support and cooperative learning.
• Inspiring children to develop a sense of aesthetics and appreciation of culture through art, dance, drama, music, and stories.
• Incorporating the research-based curriculum that is regularly evaluated to improve the quality and effectiveness of our programs.
• Encouraging independence, fostering creativity; supporting the development of children's mental and emotional, social, intellectual, cognitive and physical skills.
2) Learning Mastery
The ability to read effectively is one of the most important components of the learning process. Young children often get easily distracted and read with a poor level of comprehension.
•'Multiple Intelligence' make learning efficient, effective, powerful and lasting. Children are able to understand clearer, learn faster and remember better.
• We maximize children's potential to develop their confidence, independence, so they feel successful and maintain high self-esteem of themselves.
• We guide and facilitate developmentally appropriate activities for children to engage in the learning process to build curious and independent learners.
• We recognize individual needs and interests and adapt instruction and materials to address their needs and interests.
• We foster the natural, insatiable curiosity of the children to expand their mind with the feeling of universality.
3) Personal Mastery
Acquiring the most effective learning strategies is useless unless children are motivated to learn.
Children need positive guidance to develop healthy emotional and mental, social, intellectual, cognitive, cultural, creative and physical skills.
• We facilitate personal and social development through the promotion of cooperation, responsibility, self- confidence, self-discipline and healthy habits.
• We love care and praise children respect for others, appreciation for diversity, tolerance, and the ability to solve problems constructively.
• We involve children in planning their learning and help them make meaningful connections with the world.
• We stimulate a love of learning by exploring and investigating, actively engaging in the learning process to build curious and independent learners
4) Family and Community
Character education is part of our everyday lesson.
Children become more sensitive, empathetic, respectful, responsible, kind, caring and peaceful members of the community.
Character education and Agama lessons for our Muslim children involve cooperation with parents, family, community and the world around us by sharing important life-lessons and values.
• Social and emotional learning is emphasized as much as academic learning
• Children engage in activities that make them think critically about values such as fairness, caring, honest, and treat others with kindness and respect.
• Cultural activities and experiences increase children's awareness, they learn to cooperate, negotiate, share and to help each another.
• Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and character building help children become more sensitive, respectful, responsible, kind, caring and peaceful members of the community.
