Little Explorer (3 - 6 years)
Most children love animals and are naturally intrigued by them. Animals seem to have superpowers - birds can fly, fishes can breathe in the water, frogs can live on both land and in water and etc. All these seem like superpowers they do not have, so how do the animals do it? Join our class as we explore the amazing world of plants and animals.
Our Little Explorer programme aims to help develop early literacy and interest in the living sciences. There are so many interesting things mother nature has to offer and we cant wait to share them with your child.
Read on to find out what goes on in a class.
Children are introduced to a different animal every week. We will touch on topics like body characteristics, body coverings, life cycles, diet, habitat, animal classification, pollution (if relevant) and interesting facts about the animal.
Classroom activities promote participation, encourage critical thinking, hone observational skills and promote knowledge retention.
Through these activities, children pick up new vocabulary, learn to take turns, follow instructions, work together with friends and develop an early interest in life sciences. This interest and appreciation for animals and life sciences is important in nurturing the next generation of caretakers of our planet. Besides benefitting from picking up new skills, they also develop empathy over time through interactions with the animals.
