Our learning programmes will prepare children for Kindergarten. We focus on developing their independent skills such as looking after their belongings, their ability to self-regulate their emotions, express themselves confident manner and improve on their cooperative skills to work well with others. Together with the teachers, they will explore in their classes nature, such as animals, plants, weather, and the environment. All in Mandarin. By playing they will learn to express their emotions such as joy, pleasure, pain, frustration, anger and build up their vocabulary. The teachers and our a rich literacy and numeracy environment contribute to the development of their creativity, social, negotiation, and problem-solving competencies. And by offering various plays the children practice their motor skills and control in addition to practice writing and recognising their names and counting in Mandarin . Through regular walks and playing in nearby parks as well as excursions, we are discovering the environment. In summary, the curriculum addresses a holistic development, life skills competencies and a learning journey in Communication, Language and Literacy, early numeracy, creative expressions, environmental and community awareness, technology, personal and social development, physical skills and well-being.

Your child will always feel loved, cherished and receive a significant amount of time and special care from our teachers. The infant program is holistic and emphasises the development of infants’ emerging physical, perceptual, sensory-motor, cognitive, language, culture and social-emotional skills. Our teachers follow the best practices from Switzerland and Singapore. Our professionals follow the daily routine activities, such as feeding and diapering and are flexible to cater to the individual needs of each child. A special emphasis is given to a stimulative learning environment through which much of the infants’ learning takes place. Infant attachment to two familiar caregivers who are sensitive and responsive forms the basis for developing trust, emotional security and well-being. In each class, there is a Swiss-German, and Chinese speaking caregiver and both only speak in their language with your child. At Learning Panda playing is central to the daily routine of the infant program. Through playing infants observe and learn about the world, promotes essential skills in cognition, language, physical, social and emotional learning.
