Pre-Primary Years

Pre-Primary Years are for young students aged 4 – 6 years old

The Pre-Primary Years Programme seek to nurture children holistically, so that they are confident, have strong social skills and a good foundation in literacy and numeracy.

The Pre-Primary Years Programme is a half-day (four hours) programme. For parents who require a full-day programme, Student Care service is available from Monday to Friday.

A Strong Start For Every Child

Quality pre-primary education lays a strong foundation for life-long learning and has short and long term benefits for children. To nurture children as life-long learners, we need to build their self-confidence, encourage them to explore the world around them and teach them how to regulate their behaviour and emotions, express themselves and get along with others.

Desired Outcomes of Education

Desired Outcomes of Education reflect what the Starclub International Homeschool education system aspires to develop in every child:

• A confident person who has a strong sense of right and wrong, is adaptable and resilient, knows himself, is discerning in judgement, thinks independently and critically, and communicates effectively.

• A self-directed learner who takes responsibility for his own learning, who questions, reflects and perseveres in the pursuit of learning.

• An active contributor who is able to work effectively in teams, exercises initiative, takes calculated risks, is innovative and strives for excellence.

• A concerned citizen who is rooted, has a strong civic consciousness, is informed, and takes an active role in bettering the lives of others around him.

Key Stage Outcomes of Pre-Primary Education

At the pre-primary level, the holistic development of children is most important. The key stage outcomes of pre-school education emphasise the need for children to build up confidence and social skills and be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and dispositions for life-long learning. At the end of their pre-school education, children should:

• know what is right and what is wrong

• be willing to share and take turns with others

• be able to relate to others

• be curious and able to explore

• be able to listen and speak with understanding

• be comfortable and happy with themselves

• have developed physical co-ordination, healthy habits, participate in and enjoy a variety of arts experiences

• love their families, friends, teachers and school
