Parents always want the best for their children. Sometimes what is the best is not clear, though. Singapore is a small country but opportunities for children education are countless. There many schools, kindergartens, and preschools which are claiming to offer the best possible education. The idea is to give your child what is the most suitable type of education according to your needs.
Children need to be educated from a very early age.
Learning is a process, which needs improving on a daily basis. Small children have to feel comfortable and calm in order to start remembering things and mastering the process of learning. Actually, this is important for kids and elders equally. Grow people follow the same principles when they need some education. However, I think that the GEMS World Academy Early Years – Pre-K to K2 is one of the best international programmes in Singapore.
According to studies, social behaviour is formed in early years of the child, so they are extremely important. Everything in school is important one child to feel safe and secure in school. In Singapore international preschools usually have many buildings suitable for different academic occupations. Children should have the opportunity to sport and educate in a friendly environment.
Facilities are important!
International preschool facilities are as important as educators are.
Students should have the freedom to play and study in a cosy and snug environment. Some studies show that environment is so important that it can improve children’s ability to remember and accept new knowledge. For example, if one student feels uncomfortable he will not be able to learn how to read and his reading abilities will be disturbed. If one student doesn’t have the right environment to sport regularly he will have health issues later. All educators agree that sport and academic should have equal importance for children because they both will form their behaviour and habits.
In GEMS World Academy there are all-weather playing fields and early years swimming pool which are available for kids, too. Teaching kids how to swim and to be able to feel calm in water is essential for kid’s self-esteem. Sometimes sports achievements become the most important part of kid’s experience in school, so they should have the right facilities to accomplish them. It is a good idea to have a different library for kids only so they are easier for reading books can be accessible all the time. In some international preschools, there are playgrounds and different thematic rooms, like music room, science room, and creative studio. All these facilities make a child’s education more interesting and attractive. This way the child will visit school hours with curiosity and interest, not with boredom.
Most international preschools in Singapore have Early Years Programme of The International Baccalaureate (IB).
For those of you who don’t know what this is – it is one of the best curriculum programmes for international children. The programme is suitable for kids from 3 years to 11 years and it includes not only academic learning but basic behaviour foundations. Excellent professionals and educators help children process of adapting. In addition, in one international preschool children start to communicate with children from other countries and widen their worldview. Personal values are not something that parents should develop in their kids all by themselves. The preschool and parents have an almost equal influence on the children’s mind and behaviour. That’s why it is so important to choose the best international preschool for your kid.
