Since its establishment, Our Juniors’ Schoolhouse has provided our pre-schoolers with high quality English-Mandarin bilingual programmes and the finest child care services. Our holistic approach to learning and development has helped prepare the children physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, artistically for academic purposes and for life.
At Our Juniors’ Schoolhouse, we believe that quality early childhood education has life-long impact on our children. Hence, our philosophy is to nurture a child in accordance to his/ her unique ability, talent and potential. Our educators adopt pertinent teaching approaches which compliment children’s learning in order to build their confidence levels.
We place strong emphasis on having a team of passionate, dedicated and well-qualified educators to implement our education model which focuses on cultural diversity and bilingualism. To further provide our children with opportunities to experiment, explore and to encourage their problem-solving attitudes, we have in place exciting discovery themes, comprehensive literacy and mathematics programmes, coupled with hands-on approaches.
Our Bilingual – Bicultural Curriculum
Our Math Programme introduces mathematical concepts through exciting stories that expound on fundamental theories. Learning is reinforced through hands–on activities, the use of Math resources, and everyday materials that the children can easily relate to. We also promote primary school readiness while instilling a love for learning.
Bilingual & Bicultural Focus
Literacy in English language is systematically nurtured. It includes vocabulary, phonological awareness, recognition of letters, words, print, comprehension, creative writing, enjoyment of books, and other texts . Our English-Mandarin bilingual focus and East-West bicultural exposure nurtures competent communicators in both languages. We believe that the key to cultivating children’s lifelong interest in learning the Chinese language is to grow their appreciation of the Chinese culture.
Our Exciting Discovery Themes
Chosen over a wide range of subjects and topics that are developmentally appropriate, our themes include the study of Science, Technology, Arts, Music, and Social Studies. Our global perspective strives to enhance our children’s appreciation of the dynamic world around them and promotes their global thinking.
Daily Outdoor Activity
Children are naturally drawn to playing outside, which allows them to explore their environment, develop muscle strength and coordination, and gain self-confidence. It also increases their flexibility and fine and gross motor skills!
Our daily outdoor activities include water play, playground fun, cycling, planting, and chalk drawing.
Music & Movement
Incorporating music and movement helps young children with social interaction and language growth. Aligned with our bicultural focus, our children are exposed to many traditional and cultural musical instruments, which they learn about, play with, and sing and dance to the music they make.
Here are just some words from our happy parents!
Adam belonged to the first batch of K2 graduates and he truly enjoyed his days here. We sent Gwyneth to the same school without having to think twice as we know she would not encounter any problems adapting with the team of experienced teachers. We like how the Centre communicates very clear and easy-to-follow instructions to parents. We find this really helpful, especially for working parents like up. The teachers are not only caring and friendly, they also put in the effort to communicate and interact with us. Thank you to Michelle and her dedicated team of teachers!
