Pre-Nursery - English | Cantonese Program (Non-Local)

Our program is targeted at children aged 2 years to 2 years 11 months.

Children attend for three hours per day, five days per week.

Our program adopts an inquiry based curriculum that is child-centered and interactive. Children learn to make new discoveries through interaction with their peers, teachers and the environment. During the Pre- Nursery year children learn to become more independent and develop various self care skills. 


In our English | Cantonese programthe first two hours of the session is conducted in English and taught by a Native English homeroom teacher. The children will be introduced to all subject areas outlined in the PYP (Primary Years Program) Scopes and Sequences.

Cantonese would be introduced for one hour towards the end of the class and would be taught by a Native Cantonese Teacher. Through songs, stories and games children will be introduced to vocabulary and concepts that are related to the school’s current Unit of Inquiry. 


The transdisciplinary nature of the programme

The PYP acknowledges the importance of particular subject areas:

  • language
  • mathematics
  • social studies
  • science
  • arts
  • personal, social and physical education.

The knowledge, concepts and skills that constitute each of these subject areas are documented in detailed frameworks—scope and sequences—that set out the overall expectations for each subject within age ranges, or as a developmental continuum. These documents are provided to schools as exemplar materials.

The PYP also recognizes that educating students in a set of isolated subject areas, while necessary, is not sufficient. Of equal importance is the need to acquire skills in context, and to explore content that is relevant to students and transcends the boundaries of the traditional subjects.
