Playgroup & Extracurricular Clubs
At a young age, children begin to make sense of what they see, feel and experience by using their minds and bodies. They observe what happens around them and mimic what they see, building theories and testing them out. Children are often full of energy and craving for knowledge in every way, therefore it is the perfect time to broaden their horizons by participating in a range of extracurricular activities and channeling their energies in a positive direction.
Extracurricular activities are essential not just to develop your child’s skills in various areas, they also help to build self-esteem and confidence while improving social skills. Through carefully planned activities, we encourage children to challenge themselves to try out new things, learn how to be part of a team and explore their talents and interests. By setting out achievable milestones and goals, we encourage children to be confident and to take pride in their achievements, and take strides – physically, emotionally and intellectually.
Learning a second language gives boost to your child’s cognitive activity. As they memorize words and adopt new sounds, they increase creativity and flexibility in mind. Moreover, by taking adventures in the foreign language, children get to know more about the cultures of the world.
Chinese (Mandarin) is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world – every one in five people speaks Chinese, that is over 900 million speakers. China is now the world’s second largest economy with one of the richest cultural heritages. Therefore, being able to speak Chinese would give your child a key skill in his or her future and our nursery provides Chinese language class for children.
Drama, Music and Performance Arts
Children start learning music since birth, as they listen to their mother’s voices and hear sounds around them. In an early childhood, kids’ innate music potential is actively developing. The more musical sounds children hear, the richer their musical experience is. During music classes, children sing songs, participate in rhythm games and get acquainted with various musical instruments presented by professional musicians. The main goal is to raise children’s interest in music through playful, entertaining musical activities, which will lay the foundation for music enjoyment in everyday life.
Yoga for children, as you might think, is not a set of poses that twist kids’ bodies into a pretzel. Rather, it is a playful sport activity that helps them feel more comfortable with their bodies, and get to know who they are inside. During yoga classes, kids enjoy imitating after animals, which develops their motor skills, balances energy and encourages a healthy lifestyle. Practising outside yoga is especially good for children’s health, as they spend time in the fresh air and get closer to nature.
