The Skool-Ready© Curriculum

This is specially designed for children from 4 to 6 years old. It is an inquiry-based curriculum, filled with concrete and fun learning experiences to engage children to observe and discover the “extraordinariness” of their environment. It consists of a series of lessons each term based on a nominated central theme as well as a period of time in which the teacher and children develop an Inquiry Project of their interest.

This programme is aligned with the Ministry of Education’s (MOE's) Pre-school Curriculum Framework and develops children’s key knowledge, skills and dispositions in the 6 learning domains:

  • Aesthetic & Creative Expression
  • Discovery of the World
  • Language & Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Motor Skills Development
  • Social and Emotional Development

The underlying tenets of the project are based on the inquiry approach to teaching and learning, where the children are encouraged to explore a topic of their interest, form questions they would like to find the answers to, go about finding the answers and resolving problems as they see them. It is a basic way that young children go about finding information to satisfy their purposes as well as developing their investigative skills and deepening their knowledge.

In the process of doing projects, children gain positive attitudes towards learning such as when they stay on task, persevere and think flexibly to solve problems.
