Mandarin Enrichment Programme in STEAM (2.5 - 8 Years)


 

Our enrichment programmes are designed to help children develop and think innovatively, cultivating their curiosity and creativity, broadening their vocabulary in the creative context, and deepening their interest in the Mandarin language, arts and culture.

The STEAM approach focuses on inquiry, collaboration and process based learning in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. We integrate each aspect at developmentally appropriate levels:

  • Arts & Science (2.5 - 6 Yrs)

  • Speech & Drama (3 - 8 Yrs)

  • Math, Logic & Technology (4.5 - 8 Yrs)

  • Chinese Arts & Calligraphy (4.5 - 8 Yrs)

  • Life Skills: Financial Literacy & Practical Life (4.5-8 Yrs)


Arts & Science (2.5 - 6 Years)

We want to promote young children to love arts and science, where one requires intuition and the other one requires logic. This one hour class is design to spark your child's curiosity and imagination, while working on their fine motor skills and cognitive skills.

We often tie-in the theme learnt in Mandarin foundation class, which enforces the learning on new vocabulary and concepts, giving children are exposure to a larger vocabulary and deeper contextual understanding of the language. The class is split into two segments:

  • Science - experience the magic and fun of science through hands on experiments with magnets, objects, weights, water and air etc.

  • Arts -  play with colours and textures, learn how to make crafts using different techniques such as drawing, fabric making, bubble painting, stamping.
