Puts Your Child First!
“Give your child an edge in pre-school education with an
exclusive trilingual curriculum at ChildFirst!”
ChildFirst, a dynamic preschool and childcare centre, under the blanket of pioneering preschool educarer Ednovation, advocates a smarter way of learning, a way of learning that always puts your child first! While most preschools offer bilingual proficiency, ChildFirst offers trilingualism to the children, with coding being the third language that has been integrated into their innovative curriculum that already offers English and Mandarin. In fact, ChildFirst is the first preschool in Singapore to offer coding as a language and not just an enrichment activity or ancillary subject to the young students.
ChildFirst’s child-centric teaching pedagogy emphasizes on the 3 pillars of a robust Chinese immersion programme, an age-appropriate Coding & technology programme and an iUnique curriculum that is based on Howard Gardener’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences. The preschool adopts an intensive Chinese immersion approach leading to children developing a strong foundation in the language. The Chinese curriculum applies the Chinese Rapid Word Recognition System and Chinese Readers story books to build proficiency in the subject.
ChildFirst’s coding programme is led by computer specialists and is age-appropriate. In the initial years the preschool teaches coding “unplugged” that is without the use of screens, wherein children learn to make sense of sequencing through various hands-on activities.
As they progress to K1 the children are able to apply this acquired knowledge to do coding, build algorithms and program robots. In the process, children learn computational skills, problem-solving and logical reasoning. As they learn to rely on their own creativity, the pre-schoolers gain confidence to navigate the more difficult paths in primary school and beyond.
ChildFirst’s iUnique curriculum has been designed to prepare the children to challenge, conquer and befriend the biggest disruptor of our times Artificial Intelligence (AI) through a unique mix of Human Intelligence (HI) and Multiple Intelligences (MI). The aim of the innovative, futuristic programme is to equip children with irreplaceable, future-ready, unique skills that can help them thrive in a constantly- evolving environment. At the same time the pre-school ensures that the children are trained in phonics, listening, reading, vocabulary building and penmanship – skills that are fundamental to pre-school education.
Testimonials from happy parents abound with heartfelt appreciation for numerous soft skills that the children have developed at ChildFirst such as teamwork, resilience and confidence along with an avid interest in Chinese and Coding. ChildFirst parents watch their children with pride as they develop fluency in three languages including the language of the future!
