Pre-school at VLC

Pre-school at VLC is characterised by days of dependable routine and structure, a set-up reminiscent of home, and a congenial atmosphere which provides children with a sense of security and belonging. This space has been carefully designed to be friendly and aesthetically pleasing, with an emphasis on the use of natural materials. We follow the innovative, in-house developed SNAP (stories, nature, art and play) curriculum.

Through developmentally appropriate activities, the children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in areas such as early literacy and numeracy at their own pace. The children also bond with their caregivers and other kids around, forming relationships based on trust and respect.

This is the age of rapid physical development and we ensure that the activities are geared towards big and small muscle development- all in a fun, play-based environment.

The program is developed keeping age-appropriate milestones with scaffolded learning over four years:

Playgroup (Age 1.5 - 2.5)
Pre-Nursery (Age 2.5 - 3.5)
Nursery (Age 3.5- 4.5)
Prep (Age 4.5 -5.5)

Our Curriculum

The innovative SNAP (stories, nature, art and play) curriculum of this play-based, literacy-rich environment allows children to thrive and develop according to age appropriate milestones that have been set out in accordance with EYFS learning outcomes. Having an emergent curriculum ensures that pedagogical practices always remain child-centric, allowing educators to collaborate with, and not dictate to, children on their learning processes. Children are also encouraged to unleash their creativity through outlets such as art, music, sensory activities and pretend play. Being exposed to nature is also a crucial part of daily activities. Whether it’s through outdoor play, gardening, or even playing with school pets, we aim to help children develop a healthy relationship with their environment. We also encourage mixed-age learning amongst the children, as such interactions provide a platform for children to hone and develop their personal and social skills.
