1.『Story Approach to Integrated Learning』
The curriculum emphasizes the cultivation of a meaningful and life-oriented learning experience for children. Teachers and students create a learning environment together. Within the story theme, Children can role-play different roles to simulate different life experiences. Children’s learning interest was also enhanced through various community learning. These features inspire children’s creativity and imagination through the practice of “Learn from doing and living”.
2.『Learning in Sites』
Children expand their learning beyond classrooms. They are encouraged to reach out to the community and nature to explore the environment surrounds them. Children observe and investigate different elements surrounding them, such as plants, the power of winds and movements of water. They make connections between their observation and their live, and appreciate the creation of God and enjoy the independent space for learning with joy.
3.『Creating Learning Situation』
Learning Corners are created and decorated according to different story themes with sufficient space for children to apply and revisit their learning experiences. Children play an important role in refining and re-constructing these corners to address their learning needs and achievements. The interactions between teachers and children themselves help scaffold children’s learning. Such learning experience enable children to progress and provide them with individual and group learning opportunities to enhance their problem solving skills.
4.『Whole Brain Learning』
The body and the brain are a whole. Balanced and healthy physiological conditions are the prerequisites to a clever brain. We recognize the importance of whole brain development in nurturing the healthy growth of children. By utilizing children’s developmental characteristics, such as their keen interest in moving around, experimenting and learning, and incorporating brain gym exercise and healthy diet into the daily schedule, we aim to help children establish ideal habits to ensure healthy brain and body development.
5.Cultivation of 『Spirituality and Morality』
Children , learn to share their experiences and be grateful for life and pray to God in morning assembly every day at school. “Happy Seed Fellowship” is leaded by religious teachers to cultivate positive behaviors through Bible stories and songs, role-playing games and readings.
