How We Bring Our Curriculum to Life

In every MindChamps PreSchool, lessons are conducted through our Enquiry Teaching and Learning™ approach, where children explore the various perspectives and outcomes to a question. By encouraging your child to ask questions that will lead to an enquiry exploration, we are able to stimulate his/her curiosity about the topics being discussed.

As this exploration process takes place, our teachers are trained to observe the interests of the children under their care. They will then plan lessons and activities involving the S.M.I.L.E.S.™ elements to provide a holistic learning experience for each child.

In our performing arts preschool, specialist teachers are also trained to conduct lessons using our Enquiry Teaching and Learning™ approach. Each of these specialists works with English and Chinese teachers to deliver lessons through the medium of the performing arts. All of this combines for a holistic learning experience that simultaneously develops creative expression, confidence and the Champion Mindset.

Here’s an example of how our specialist teachers integrate concepts from our core curriculum into lessons:

When exploring the theme of domestic animals, children will embark on a journey through farm life in Drama lessons, mimic the movements of animals in Dance and learn songs related to animals during Music and Singing lessons.

By integrating our performing arts lessons with the core curriculum, we offer children a unique way to deepen their understanding, as well as to extend and consolidate what they have learnt throughout their preschool years.

Our Curriculum Framework

To provide your child with an all-rounded learning experience during the early years, our curriculum integrates the following proprietary core and specialist modules.

Core Modules

MindChamps Reading and Writing™ (Natural Literacy™)

Developed by a team of early literacy experts, this module builds your child’s literacy skills through a selection of fun and interactive activities, each designed to keep him/her engaged in reading and writing.

Preschoolers in Playgroup and Nursery 1 will be introduced to basic literacy skills before they progress to key skills like phonemic and phonological awareness in Nursery 2 through our unique “Say and Sing” approach.

The Love for Chinese Language

This programme focuses on developing and enhancing your child’s Chinese language communication skills, particularly in listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Through fun and interactive lessons, your child will be exposed to drama, games, rhymes, songs, music and movement to deepen his/her understanding of the elements of the Chinese language. With practice and a lot of encouragement, your child will be empowered to communicate confidently in Chinese in his/her daily life.

Enquiry Teaching and Learning™

Enquiry Teaching and Learning™ is a unique approach developed by MindChamps PreSchool that encourages children to be curious about subject topics and to ask questions that will lead to an enquiry exploration.

Teachers pose the children questions and then build on their responses by asking further enquiry questions. Upon observing the children’s interests, teachers will also plan lessons that allow children to explore new ideas while developing their logical thought processes. The teacher will also make sure that lessons planned incorporate the S.M.I.L.E.S.™ elements and meet the interests and learning needs of different children.

Numeracy Strategies

To build a solid foundation in Maths during the early years, our Numeracy Strategies™ module focuses on helping your child gain an understanding of numerical concepts. Your child will be introduced to mathematical concepts through physical grouping and counting exercises, musical pre-numeracy activities as well as hands-on activities that involve calculating and experimenting with combinations of money denominations.

Specialist Modules

To expose your child to the performing arts, as well as to integrate and reinforce the learning outcomes from our core modules, we offer specialist modules covering 4 performing arts disciplines. These modules are conducted as part of our performing arts preschool curriculum every week.

Drama

Based on our Champion Mindset Theatre programme, this module is developed in collaboration with Dean Carey, our Dean of Theatre. Every acting- and drama-focused lesson is grounded in three pillars –  Confidence, Creativity and Collaboration – with the goal of developing your child’s communication skills.

Through basic acting training, your child will get to develop his/her imagination, communication skills and self-confidence – all while experiencing the power of the spoken word.

This module covers foundational acting techniques, storytelling and improvisation, as well as experiences of empathy, understanding and positive reinforcement. Your child will learn to express himself/herself through a variety of activities, including the Creativity Chest, which consists of original stories from our in-house library collection.

Dance

There are many benefits to an early exposure to dance. A unique form of exercise, dance provides physical training that develops stamina, flexibility and physical strength. It is also a shared experience that requires teamwork and discipline, and which creates a physical “language” for your child to express himself/herself using his/her body within a given space.

At MindChamps Performing Arts PreSchool, we focus on bringing these benefits to your child through our dedicated dance lessons, which include both group and individual work.

As most types of dance are performed to 8-beat music, dancing will help to reinforce your child’s grasp of basic numeracy concepts such as patterning, sequencing and counting, all of which are covered in our curriculum. The repetitive nature of dance classes also allows your child to acquire skills like coordination and memory at his/her own pace.

It’s important to note that we are not setting out to shape your child into a star performer. Instead, we work on developing your child’s creativity, confidence and perseverance through early exposure to dance, empowering your child to make a difference in the dynamic world of tomorrow.

Music and Singing

An enhanced version of MindChamps Music, Music and Singing is offered as a core module at all MindChamps PreSchool centres. It is developed in collaboration with Dr Lawrence Scripp, our Dean of Music in Education.

In Music and Singing, your child will get to explore a variety of instruments and musical languages using voice, percussion, recorder, violin and keyboard. This will provide a basis for a life-long relationship with and interest in music.

The MindChamps Music manipulatives is a key feature in this module that will help your child to think flexibly. Through the use of various props and specialised teaching methods, your child will gain music literacy skills. This will also help your child to relate his/her knowledge of music with concepts in subjects such as languages and mathematics.

This module also includes a specialised singing component, which focuses on vocal production, breath control and sound placement. By going through the “technical” aspects of singing, we nurture your child’s abilities to communicate, perform complex tasks simultaneously (e.g. controlling pitch, breath, lyrics and tone at the same time) and develop advanced memory retention.

What Makes a MindChampion?

With our Education and Life Philosophy of 100% Respect, Zero Fear, we nurture children to become young Champions by instilling the following 10 attributes in them:
  1. I Am Confident
  2. I Am Grateful
  3. I Have Integrity
  4. I Am Self-Reflective
  5. I Focus on the Beauty in Others
  6. I Embrace Setbacks as Setups
  7. I Value Feedback as a Seed for Growth
  8. I Am Creative
  9. I Am Compassionate
  10. I Am a Life-Long Learner
