Teachers

Meet Our Teachers

Our teachers are selected based on their experience, aptitude, character, and their passion to teach and develop children under their charge.

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on the Reggio Emilia approach, a well-known educational approach that has gained worldwide recognition. The approach is based on the following set of principles:

  • Children must have some control over the direction of their learning
  • Children must be able to learn through the engagement of their 5 senses
  • Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world that children must be allowed to explore and
  • Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves.

Based on these guiding principles, we developed our curriculum as shown below:

The Project Approach

Project work is child-led. We believe that children should have some control over the direction of their learning. Don’t we excel in things that we are more interested in?

Activities are planned for the children to explore with their senses and will tap on concrete evidences. We will incorporate more hands-on activities for the child to discover the topic, as we seek to build on the child’s interest in learning. We believe that the child learn best when the topic is relevant and tangible.

There are three teachers in the Reggio Emilia approach. Parents are the children’s first teachers and our pedagogy sets out to involve you as much as possible. Classroom teachers are facilitators and they guide the children through the dynamic learning of each project. The environment that we create for them is the third teacher and that will allow the children to learn as they explore, investigate and experience.

We promise that your child’s time with Ameba Schoolhouse will be purposeful and engaging, and that every moment spent will be worthwhile and joyful.

Chinese Preparatory

We offer Mandarin as the second language. Most full-sized classes will be resourced with three teachers. One English Curriculum Specialist, one Chinese Curriculum Specialist and an Assistant teacher. We believe this language immersion will provide the children more opportunities to hear the language and encourage them to converse in it.

Our Chinese programme is based on the programme offered in Confucius Institute at NTU. That forms the basis of our programme as our curriculum specialists expound on those with more activities and projects.

The milestones for Chinese are listening, speaking, recognising and lastly, writing (听说认写). At the end of K2, children will be able to recognise and write the radicals (边旁部首), and hence, be able to form words. They will also be introduced to the Chinese Phonics (汉语拼音).

Letterland Phonics

We are using the Letterland Phonics programme, a internationally renowned leading language arts programme.

It uses entertaining stories to teach letter behaviour in ways that young children can understand and enjoy. Letterland has been known to capture the children’s attention in the critical period of their lives when learning to access print becomes vital for their whole learning future. It is a child-friendly, multi-model system for teaching children how to read, write, and spell.

The children would be able to form words, spell phonically and to create words independently. These skills will help them to write sentences by the end of K2.

We promise that your child’s time with Ameba Schoolhouse will be purposeful and engaging, and that every moment spent will be worthwhile and joyful.

Progressive Mathematics

The Progressive Mathematics Curriculum is a heuristic approach to learning mathematical concepts. The progressive learning allows children to explore challenging mathematical concepts in incremental complexity as they gain more foundational skills.

Learning Math is ongoing in class, as children make sense of mathematical concepts through their environment. We will use a variety of tools to support the child’s learning, establishing concrete experiences. The class is equipped with an array of materials for the children to sort, count, do patterning and measure etc. Activities will be planned to reinforce and extend the children’s learning.

This is in line with the Mathematics Syllabus Primary (2006) by the Ministry of Education, Singapore, which states that:

“ Mathematical problem solving is central to mathematics learning. It involves the acquisition and application of mathematics concepts and skills in a wide range of situations, including non-routine, open-ended and real-world problems. ”

Sensory Culinary Arts

Cooking activities are planned in the curriculum as they offer lots of opportunities for learning. Cooking promotes the social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language development of a child.

The cooking sessions will allow the children to use their eye hand coordination, as they synchronize the eye and hand movements. Children can then enjoy the fruit of their labour at the end of each cookery activity. Yummy!

Such activities are well-thought to ensure the safety of the children when carrying out such activities. Our curriculum specialists monitor and guide the children closely during such sessions.

We promise that your child’s time with Ameba Schoolhouse (one of the most experienced and caring child care centre in Singapore) will be purposeful and engaging, and that every moment spent will be worthwhile and joyful.

Music & Movement

In music, children will explore the elements of dynamics, tempo, pitch and duration. Subjects may include music theory, songs and rhymes, aural training and memory training. Children are also exposed to different kinds of instruments such as percussion, strings, brass and woodwind instruments.

In addition, music appreciation will be part and parcel of the lessons and opportunities for improvisation and in-class performances will be conducted.

The children will have the chance to build up their confidence while performing as well as enjoy each lesson through experiential learning and movement activities.

Art & Craft

Art and craft allows children to express their thoughts and feelings. Our art room is equipped with various types of materials. These are placed on open shelves and children are free to select their own materials for their art pieces.

Based on their imagination and self-expression, children can draw, for example, their own version of a snake and we will be happy to receive the various versions. Children may choose to paint on paper, cardboard, canvas or cloth. One may want to use crayons and the other may use colour pencils. One may use dough and the other may use jewels and poms poms with glue. Let the creativity juices flow!

We promise that your child’s time with Ameba Schoolhouse (one of the most caring child care center in Singapore with dedicated early childhood trained teachers) will be purposeful and engaging, and that every moment spent will be worthwhile and joyful.
