Curriculum Planning
Our curriculum is developed based on the Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide (2017) published by the Curriculum Development Council. It incorporates children-centred, play-based strategies and is developed to meet children’s learning interests, abilities and needs. Its objective is “to lay the foundation of lifelong learning by fostering in children an inquisitive mind, an interest in learning and exploration, a balanced development, a healthy self-concept, and the ability and confidence to adapt to the ever-changing world.”

Learning/Teaching Approach and Activities

Our school engages children in a happy learning environment and develops their interests in learning mainly through “thematic, play-based learning”, “project approach”, “specialised language learning: English, Putonghua” and “diversified activities” and through using the “spiral approach”.

Children’s Learning Progress Assessment 
■  Continuous theme-based assessment – carried out once upon the completion of a learning theme
■  Specialised subjects learning assessment – once per semester
■  Learning Portfolio – four times a year
■  Summative Assessment – once at the end of each semester
■  At the end of each semester, every student will receive their own learning progress portfolio

Curriculum Highlights
By placing life education at the core, we integrate both “spiritual” and “moral” education in our curriculum to teach children the Word of God, help them experience the love of God, develop a thirst for communion with Him so that they will walk on the right path in their lifetime. We must instill moral and ethical values in children right from a young age to ensure that they will grow into individuals with positive personality traits.
■  “Spiritual” Education: Morning assembly, Bible lesson, children’s worship service, carol singing, Christmas Family Party, Easter Family Fun Day, Bible week, etc.
■  “Moral” Education: Morning assembly, school rules, learning corner rules, parent talks, parent tea gatherings, etc.

1. Develop children’s moral values and personality, guide children to live by Christian moral values and lay a solid foundation for them to grow into an individual with positive personality traits.
2.  Develop children’s social habits and attitudes, and develop a healthy mind in children through showing them positive examples to learn from. Integrate “spiritual” education in their everyday life to help them live a Christian life.
