Literacy-Based Approach


At the Little Skool-House, we believe that there’s always something new to be uncovered at the turn of a page. That’s why we adopt a literacy-based approach that is more than just about listing words – it’s the springboard to learning.

Through our preschool programme, we promote integrated learning across six subject domains:

Learning outcomes for each subject domain starting from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2 have been defined. These outcomes cover a range of knowledge, skills and dispositions that teachers will work with children to develop.

    Kids Create - Aesthetics and Creative Expression




In Kids Create, we focus on providing your child with the freedom and space to explore their creativity rather than the end result or product. By immersing your child in visual arts, music and movement, your child will be more expressive, creative and imaginative.

Your child will learn how to:
  • Explore the elements of art in their artwork and through art appreciation
  • Explore the elements of music through music appreciation, singing and playing percussion instruments
  • Share their ideas and feelings through art and music and movement

    Curious works - discovery of the world




Children are often curious about the world around them and how it works, reacts and responds to changes. Through Curious Works, we nurture your child’s natural curiosity of the world while laying the foundation for learning in geography, history and the sciences. 

Your child will:
  • Make discoveries through observation
  • Find out why things happen and how things work through simple investigations
  • Make connections and draw relationships about the world around them
  • Develop a positive attitude towards the world around them
