Why choose Peter & Jane? Holistic Early Childhood Education & Development
In today’s ever-changing world, the techniques of teaching and learning are also changing, and there is a growing focus on the holistic development of children, which pays attention to their physical, mental and emotional growth. This holistic development also includes developing all their gross and fine motor skills and building their mental strengths.
The first five years is the time when the foundations for learning, health and behaviour throughout life are laid down. For almost 40 years, learning approaches at Peter & Jane Kindergarten have evolved to guarantee that children grow up in an environment that helps them to enjoy learning and thrive in ever-changing terrain. With the award-winning in-house ‘Thematic Trilingual Program’ combined with the scientifically proven ‘Montessori Method’ of education and a ‘Music Circle’ programme specifically developed for Peter & Jane by a renowned children’s music education specialist from America, innumerable children had benefited and progressed in life.
As curriculum areas are connected rather than made to stand alone, theme-based learning helps children make sense of what they are being taught. When knowledge is given as part of a whole rather than as isolated facts, students retain more of it. Thematic learning promotes learning with comprehension while discouraging rote learning. Not to mention their ‘Music Circle’ programme, which is a unique study since music and art acquisition enhances child growth, increases intelligence, and defines their personality, all of which is beneficial to their overall development.
All of the programmes are designed to help children transition to the next level of learning. Work and play, combined with didactic Montessori learning materials, will assist children in developing practical living skills, sensory motor skills, language skills, science and mathematical skills, music skills, physical agility, and safety skills.
The goal of the Peter & Jane classroom design is to provide children with the skills they need to make a smooth transition into primary school. Throughout the teacher-led lessons, the programme stays child-centered. The programmes, which are named K1 and K2, are aimed at children aged 5 and 6 years old, respectively.
