Preschool and Kindergarten education is not just about getting ready for Primary 1 or first grade – the IQ (intelligence quotient). It is about curiosity, exploration, experiences, self-esteem and interactions – the EQ (emotional quotient). Children have an innate sense of wonder and awe and are natural explorers. Our aim is to allow this instinctive desire for enquiry to flourish.
We believe children should have fun. Luckily for them the evidence shows that preschool age children learn most through play. Play is essential for children to develop high-level social strategies as well as physical and mental skills. At Swallows and Amazons Kindergarten teachers know why, when and how they can help ‘play’ become an enriching, meaningful learning experience so that children can fulfil their potential, making independent learners with high self esteem and confidence.
