Pre-primary: Learning by the play

The early childhood curriculum is designed to meet students' needs, interests and abilities to foster their holistic development. Our curriculum is inspired by Dr Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, while our student-centric pedagogy is inspired by Reggio- Emilia approach.

Our pedagogy: Reggio- Emilia approach

Each child is considered infinitely capable, creative and intelligent. The teacher's job is to support these qualities and challenge students in appropriate ways.

i. Students learn, express and develop critical thinking skills through projects, group work, field trips, resource books and audio-visuals.

ii. Students learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, and observing.


Students have some control over the direction of their learning.

Developing the whole child, not just academic aptitude

Our curriculum is based on Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory. Going with the traditional belief of IQ as the best predictor of intellect, schools focus on language, numerical and spatial abilities. Instead, based on evidence from disparate sources, the MI theory claims that humans have several relatively discrete intellectual capacities. We expose young students to eight independent intelligence for holistic growth.

Linguistic Intelligence

A phonic-based language and rich environment promote listening, speaking, reading and writing, plus vocabulary enrichment.

Interpersonal Intelligence

Group work with both peers and adults builds confidence and positive relationships.

Intrapersonal Intelligence

Self-awareness grows through prayer and reflection.

Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligence

Sand play, water play, dance, drama and yoga promote the development of fine and gross motor skills.

Logical - Mathematical Intelligence

Naturalistic Intelligence

A love for one's natural and cultural environment blossoms through interactions with the real world.

Visual Spatial Intelligence

Scribbling, drawing, colouring, painting, origami and other craftwork hone the child's aesthetic sense.



Musical Intelligence

Songs and poetry teach rhythm, pitch and balance.

Numeracy and mathematical skills are built by observing order, patterns and relationships, cause and effect, abstract symbols and concepts of time, space and quantity in the universe. 13 St. John’s Universal
