At Nursery 2 (N2), we leverage on the children’s curiosity and natural thirst for knowledge by providing ample opportunities for hands-on exploration, discovery, critical thinking and problem solving. There is also greater focus on phonics, reading, speaking, and skills and concepts learning due to the children’s increased competencies in language arts and numeracy. ‘Show and Tell’ sessions are introduced to further boost speaking and presenting skills and to build confidence.
We continue to prioritise EQ development through Brain Training activities. Qualified trainers from People Impact. conduct customised lessons and collaborate with our teachers on regular assessments so to achieve greater autonomy and independence, emotional self-regulation, self-concept and confidence in each child.
The children are taught enhanced self-help skills where they are able to make their own beds, and change their clothes and wear their shoes all by themselves. We also aim to inculcate a sense of responsibility in them through daily tasks such as keeping their places neat and clearing their own plates without reminder from the teachers.
- At Our First Steps, we believe in maintaining small class sizes for better individual care and attention.
- Although MCYS guideline for teacher: child ratio is 1:15, we adopt a lower ratio for our children.
