Our curriculum is designed according to the Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide 2017. It emphasizes everyday life themes and the objectives of every learning aspect. The learning objectives and context are developed around the “sequentiality” principle and the spiral approach which enables students to learn step by step. The curriculum aims to enhance children’s creative thinking, encourage them to learn through exploration and grow from gaining hands-on experience.
Integrated Teaching Approach
It combines different subjects and connects the learning context with students’ prior skills, knowledge, attitudes and learning experiences, thus providing children with a curriculum that connects different areas of study.
We actively promote the following learning modules:
- “Theme-based teaching”: Exploratory activities that match different themes are arranged to encourage children to take ownership of their learning and acquire knowledge throughout the process.
- “Project approach”: To cultivate children’s interests in self-driven exploration, children are engaged in in-depth, continuous learning projects designed to meet their interests and abilities.
- “Whole-language learning”: Create a “whole-language” learning environment with real-life situations that allow children to use their language skills, read and write. It aims to provide children with an integrated language learning experience that enables them to apply their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in everyday life.
As a supplementary teaching tool, the multimedia learning system provides a rich variety of learning resources that support the learning context, including animations, songs, videos and interactive games. It guides children to explore and enhance their learning abilities, thus developing their multi-intelligences.

To enable children to know Jesus Christ from a young age, cultivate in them a positive mindset and help them understand the meaning of life.
Adhering to biblical truth, we implement life education and moral education programmes to encourage children to appreciate and respect life, develop a positive outlook and enjoy everything they have. The curriculum takes a progressive approach that students will first get to know their strengths and weakness, learn to appreciate their uniqueness and then they will be taught the values of life and learn to respect others as well as care for the society.
We use a diversified assessment strategy to conduct continuous summative assessments to record children’s learning performances. We set up learning portfolios for children based on continuous observation, record and feedback. An assessment is carried out upon the completion of each unit and children’s learning portfolios that reflect children’s learning progress are distributed at the end of each semester. This helps enhance the collaboration between the school and parents for children’s development, and enhance children’s abilities and potentials in different domains.
Parent observation in the classroom is arranged every year, allowing parents to get a picture of the learning activities and how their children are learning.
We organise parents’ talks and Parents’ Day regularly. Class teachers will meet the parents to talk about the children’s learning and progress.
