About Us

Our Programmes

The ultimate aim of our programme - playgroup, pre-nursery and Kindergarten - is to provide a warm, stimulating and safe environment to give your child a firm foundation for living and learning.

At RAINBOW, we know that children learn best when they are interested in what they do. Here, children are offered play activities which are planned and carefully structured to promote not only their learning, but also positive attitude towards the learning process.

We provide opportunities for children to develop independence, social skills, language skills, to question and explore.

ENVIRONMENT AND FACILITIES

We understand the importance of the environment and its materials for children's hands-on learning. Our teachers in this early childhood setting use methods and materials to set up learning centres that match the changing skill levels of children. Teachers facilitate learning in the environment with ample work/play slots, positive modeling and interactions and with questions motivating children's thinking. Teachers also provide children with the opportunity to practice planning and problem solving as they use the learning centres and materials in them.

EARLY SOCIAL INTERACTION

This carefully planned setting and materials include open-ended activities that encourage children to experiment with materials as they stretch their imaginations, practise and hone developmental skills. As such we have:

  • spacious indoor and outdoor areas enabling children to explore and move about freely

  • outdoor apparatus and wheeled toys to develop children's gross motor co-ordination

  • toys and play equipment designed to promote language skills and social interaction

  • a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books to promote the love of books and joy in reading

  • computers and audio-visual equipment which enhance children's learning opportunities and promote their technological knowledge, skills and understanding

  • classrooms which offer opportunities for construction play, creative and musical exploration, and language and literacy appreciation

1.5 to 3 years old

Areas for the playgroup and pre-nursery children (the 1.5 to 3 years old) are kept free of clutter and has materials that are safe for their ages and appropriate for their developmental levels, eg., pull toys with strings no longer than 30cm; cloth or cardboard books, large-sized wooden threading beads; banging and jingling musical instruments, toy telephones; transport toys; large sized crayons and water colour markers; 4 to 6 piece puzzles; steerable riding toys; stackable boxes and blocks; soft dough; finger and tempera paint; and sand, water and containers for pouring and sifting.

3 to 4 years old

Three to four year olds love to take things apart and put them back together, but small pieces can still be misused. Children are supervised in their play and containers are provided in which these pieces can be stored and sorted.

4 to 6 years old

Older pre-schoolers need opportunities to exercise their growing independence, but still need to be closely supervised as they are likely to take risks and test physical limits. The activities we offer are challenging but well within the children's developmental capabilities.

EXCITING LEARNING JOURNEYS

Our approach to teaching and learning involves:

  • introduction of concepts through hands-on, practical and sensorial experience

  • thematic integrated learning activities which relate to the children's life experiences and cultural background

  • a balanced language programme, with "Letterland" as the backbone, to promote the development of children's skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening in both English and Mandarin

  • the implementation of a structured scheme (Mimosa Math) to support children's acquisition of mathematical and scientific concepts

  • systematic observation and ongoing assessment of each child's achievements

  • ongoing reviews of curriculum provision to ensure that it meets every child's individual developmental needs.

The combined skills and expertise of our English and Chinese speaking teachers provide excellent models for children's developing language proficiency. They also actively promote understanding of universal values, fundamental to the global society we live in.

As such, our teachers are supported with training resources and the freedom to develop a creative yet developmentally appropriate learning experience for every child. The child enjoys learning experiences which are challenging and carefully planned to ensure progression based on past success and achievement. In this way, the child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical development are enhanced to reach their highest potential.
