Creativity is at the heart of the Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse curriculum. At Kiddiwinkie, the children are immersed in an environment that not only develops them cognitively, socially, physically, linguistically and emotionally, but also hones their imagination which brings out creativity.
A unique learning environment
Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse curriculum features a range of programmes for children aged 18 months to six years old. Play is a very important dimension of the curriculum as it is regarded as an interactive platform for social interaction that provides the children with opportunities to develop extra curricular skills and share knowledge with one another. Play is also crucial in allowing for a child’s curiosity to manifest naturally for their holistic growth.
For the children’s holistic growth, classrooms are set up to encourage experiential and investigative learning. It taps into the children’s innate desire to explore and discover the world around them. The classrooms are creativity designed to support the children’s inquiry by providing real-life resources for authentic hands-on exploration. Other supporting structural features include specially designed learning corners that serve to assimilate new knowledge and imaginative play in a conducive environment.
Kiddiwinkie Schoolhouse was awarded with the Reading Innovation Award (Distinction) by the National Library Board. Its Super Readers, Super Heroes programme, which recommends specific titles for the children to bring home every weekend, is tailored to suit each child’s reading ability and interest. To further develop the children’s linguistic literacy, the school’s curriculum also features reflective journaling through their Bear Walk Movement programme, and fosters presentation skills in their Tick Tock, It’s Time to Talk sessions.
Other key highlights of its curriculum include the Vitamin C programme, which aims to encourage, motivate, and nurture the children to cultivate good moral values, and LemonAide, whose objective is to encourage collaboration and further develop the children’s communication and critical thinking skills.
