A new curriculum that aims to foster children’s curiosity, creativity, capabilities and sense of entrepreneurship, has been introduced to 26 Cherie Hearts preschools – a subsidiary of G8 Education Singapore.
Young Parents dropped in at the Depot Close outlet to observe the curriculum in action.
The curriculum – SPIRAL Literacies Model was inspired by the New London Group academic theory on Pedagogy of multi-literacies – a concept that enhances children’s learning of early literacy and numeracy.
Developed in-house, the curriculum was founded in the belief that children should be equipped with critical 21st century skills which will help them adapt to the globalised world that is driven by demographics and technological advancements.
It is also aligned with the SPARK accreditation of Singapore preschools, and the Ministry of Education’s Framework for Nurturing Early Learners with 21st Century Competencies.
With that philosophy in mind, the model consists of five key components to help enrich children’s holistic growth.
