Does your child speak confidently, read voraciously, or write fluently by age 6, before they enter their Primary school years? Well, Little Green House’s award-winning Literacy Smart Programme equips preschoolers with basic, intermediate, and advanced literacy skills that enable them to do so!
Since its inception in 2005, Little Green House is renowned for its ability to provide a rich and stimulating educational environment for the development of young children, aged two months to six years. Awarded the “Best Literacy Programme” for the fourth year running, you can be assured your child is in good hands.
Its dedicated team of professional preschool teachers cares for children as they would for young tree saplings. Each day, they sprinkle their minds with love for learning, and nurture their hearts with seeds of confidence. With nurturing hands, a set of engaging activities, and a rock-solid curriculum, children will surely blossom into magnificence.
Little Green House has 12 centres island-wide, including a Chinese-immersion preschool at Sin Ming that helps children become young maestros of the language, acquiring an expressive word bank of over 3,000 words, reciting more than 35 Chinese poems, and learning more than 50 Chinese idioms by age 6.
Literacy Smart Programme
As a child’s early formative years are exceptionally crucial for development, exposing young learners to well-designed early childhood environments and programmes are highly beneficial to a child’s cognitive and motor functions.
Little Green House’s teachers utilise a plethora of learning aids to engage children in a series of fun activities, interactive role-playing, and short quizzes to evoke the child’s curiosity and interest. While children learn as a collective, individual learning needs are identified through specially curated activities. Furthermore, the pace of learning for each child is carefully moderated to transform book-shy children into voracious readers and masters of the language.
A new learning adventure awaits children each term as they learn through unique themes and are given appropriately challenging tasks. Thematic-based teaching, where teachers create an array of meaningful activities revolving around a central theme, typically evolve into long-term projects that children will remember even as they progress to their next academic level.
New Chinese Literacy Curriculum
Little Green House strives for continual improvement of its pedagogies and it recognises the importance of the Chinese language and the need for children to be effectively bilingual in today’s world.
In 2020, it has rolled out a new Chinese literacy curriculum aimed at accelerating children’s grasp and command of the language through an enhanced curriculum that nurtures their Chinese language capabilities holistically.
The new curriculum has been designed by curriculum specialists with S.T.E.A.M subjects as its core, infusing it with activities and lessons that piques the children’s curiosity and interests.
Literacy-Rich Learning Environment
Designated learning spaces—such as The Language Lab, The Sound Factory, and The Stage—provide a wondrous environment to further improve children’s literacy capabilities in reading, listening, and speaking.
Little Green House prides itself in creating a literacy-rich and conducive environment where age-appropriate readings, activity books, audio learning stations, and current news clippings abound in reading corners available throughout all centres. The accessibility to various forms of reading material encourages children to pick up a book easily and stimulates their interest in reading and the language.
Beyond commercial audio books, Little Green House’s audio corner, The Sound Factory, also boasts audio books produced by their very own teachers. Headphones and media players are issued to K1 and K2 students to help them follow the story lines, make word associations, improve listening skills, and master the sounds of words during silent reading.
Classroom walls are filled with a wide variety of visual charts and pictorials, helping children to be independent learners as they pick up new words on their own on a daily basis. Teachers are also always near and ready to assist whenever a question pops up.
Beyond its robust focus on literacy, Little Green House acknowledges the importance of nurturing the child through a fusion of strong academic curriculum, creative enrichment programmes, and exciting hands-on activities.
Learning corners like the Manipulative Corner promotes the development of gross and fine motor skills, English and Chinese Corners aid language mastery, Numeracy Corner helps children learn mathematical concepts, while the Discovery of the World Corner delves students into the world of science.
