1. Early Intervention Programme
Our early intervention programme is child-centred which bridges connections between the child, their teachers as well as their peers. We value and acknowledge that children need to develop holistically in order for them to gain independence as such play, active learning, child choice, highly motivating materials, and positive behavioural supports are keys to facilitating children’s growth in developmental areas.
We try our best to make learning fun for young children. We ensure our hands-on activities are also beneficial for each of their development. For example, sensory play, sand play, water play, science experiments, cookery, digital interactive games, small group gameplay, etc.
We do not group children in classes according to their age (e.g. Nursery, Kindergarten) but according to their ability and skills group. We have 3 levels of classes, Foundation, Intermediate, & Advanced Level.
To be able to focus on each individual's development, we intend to keep the student ratio low at 1 teacher : 3 students.
2. Young Minds Programme
Our Young Minds Programme is child-centred which bridge connections between the child, their teachers as well as their peers. This is not the usual half-day programme in childcare or kindergarten which practise generalised teaching. It is catered to provide developmental support for children with all kinds of learning needs. This programme is suitable for children aged 2 to 6 years old. This will be a mixed group setting.
Our programme consists of daily routines and activities that will allow your child to work on and further enhance skills in the 8 developmental domains. We recognise the importance to have a curriculum to develop the children holistically in order for them to gain independence as such play, active learning, child choice, highly motivating materials, and positive behavioural supports.
We will follow up the IEP goals set by other Early Intervention Centres and embed the tasks required in our daily routines and activities. To be able to focus on each individual's development, we intend to keep the student ratio low at 1 teacher is to 5 children.
3. Junior Years Programme
Our Junior Years Programme is catered to provide developmental support for older children with all kinds of learning needs. This programme is suitable for children aged 7 to 12 years old. This will be a mixed group setting.
Our classroom is equipped with bigger furniture and included more independent functioning activities. We hope our children are able to take care of themselves independently in their learning journey and equipped with essential life skills that will bring them far in life.
Instead of the usual min 1:25 staff to student ratio in the mainstream SCCs, we keep ratio low to a max of 1:5 students in one session so we can work closely and personalised everyday's learning according to per student's needs. We will follow up the IEP goals set by other SPed School and embed the tasks required in our daily routines and activities.
4. Buddy Bears Programme
This programme is suitable for dual-schoolers! Especially for those attending the half-day programme but there's an interval during noon time!
It's catered for working parents who are utilising their lunch time to do the pick up & drop off or entrusting the duty to their domestic helpers. With this programme, you can put your worries behind and let us help you in the logistic! :)
For this programme, we are able to: ✅ receive your child from the school bus (send your child up to the next school bus too!) ✅ work mainly on adaptive skills such as showering and feeding skills ✅ encourage social communication and play skills with peers in a small setting
