    • Yew Chung Early Childhood Education (ECE) programme takes place in a nurturing environment that enables children to exercise initiative, make decisions and construct a hands-on understanding of the world.

      These include the realms of academic knowledge and skills development such as early literacy, mathematical and scientific concepts. Instead of teacher-lead activities, our ECE children see themselves as readers, designers, athletes, and even presenters who are the main players of each class activities under the guidance of the teachers. Look at how our ECE kids enjoy their learning through play!

      Play 1 - Personal, Social and Emotional Development

      Demonstrating friendly behaviour while attempt different class activities, initiate conversations and form good relationships with peers and familiar adults.

      Play 2 - Physical Development

      Rolling on the wedge mats and devising a hoop jumping game, children experiment with different ways of moving, negotiating space successfully when playing racing and chasing games with other children, adjusting speed or changing direction to avoid obstacles

      Play 3 - Communication and Language – English and Chinese

      Identifying different flags and developing more complex sentences to link thoughts (e.g. using and, because), and using vocabulary focused on objects and people during their completion of a puzzle project

      Play 4 – Literacy Reading and Writing

      Playing word matching games and writing their own alliteration sheet to learn and say the initial sound in words and be aware of rhyme and alliteration

      Play 5 - Mathematical Development

      Measuring the distance between countries on a map and by playing a beanbag shape game, kids build up their number sense, understand shape and space

      Play 6 - Understanding of the World

      Find their home countries on a world map by identifying the countries’ flags; discuss the aspects of their familiar world such as the place where they live

      Play 7 - Creative Development

      Designing and constructing the balloon cars to represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology
