Our Roots curriculum systematically covers all learning areas guided by ECDA’s Curriculum framework yet takes into consideration the children’s natural interests which we will then weave into our lesson plan.

Our lessons are activity-based, integrated and developmentally appropriate.

Lessons are regularly evaluated and improved.

In preparation for ownership of learning at a later age, children are taught independence using mainly skill-based activities.

Many lessons are planned to improve motor skills, social cohesiveness and effectiveness and to enhance their language of communication.

As part of the pre-writing preparation, activities such as dough play, scissors skills are features in the learning corners that the young children can look forward to.


Phonics, the tool for reading where the letters of the Alphabet is introduced systemically, is taught.

Basic Mathematics concepts forms the bulk of Numeracy learning.

Pre-writing skills continue to be featured here.

Kindergarten 1 (K1)

Children are guided to independent reading using phonics.

They write using invented spelling and together with their teachers and parents, each milestone of spelling is celebrated.

Academic learning is balanced with gross motor skills development; outdoor and indoor activity times are planned and provided for.

Kindergarten 2 (K2)

This is where the final layer of foundation is laid.

More abstract learning takes place; fine and gross motors skills are practiced and matured.

Pro-social and language skills are acquired to put children in a good stead for formal school.

Roots & Wings

Our new Roots and Wings Programme is available for Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2.

It is thoughtfully designed to extend children’s learning by providing them with opportunities to apply what they have learnt in the classroom.

It completes children’s learning cycle and seals knowledge where knowledge learnt is knowledge applied.

Call us for more info about our new programme, or find out more here.

Roots focuses on the ECDA learning goals, but in our special 6 hour Roots and Wings Programme, students will use the most current approach - Inquiry Based Learning - to apply the fundamentals learnt in the Roots session during the additional Wings session.

Children learn that the basis of learning is a curious mind that questions, questions and questions!

Within Roots &Wings programme, art and music enrichment is included, as well as Sportball and Chinese poetry lessons.
