About Us

  • Our Children's House

Our Philosophy

our-phyWe believe children are motivated to learn when they have opportunities to make choices in an environment that is enriching and stimulating. Children are curious from infancy and have a desire to learn from their environment and those around them. When children are encouraged to interact with their peers and adults in positive ways, they feel safe to explore their surroundings.

 

At “Our Children’s House“, we seek to guide children from needing assistance with a task to accomplishing a task independently by providing experiences that are challenging yet attainable for every child. We see each child as a unique individual with a great capacity to learn and be able to make positive contributions to those around him or her. We strive to provide an environment where children and families from different cultural backgrounds feel welcomed and accepted.

 

At “Our Children’s house“, the uniquely prepared environment is a safe, clean, conducive and an enriching haven for the children to explore about themselves and everything that they need to know about Mother Earth.

 

With our aim of “bringing the world to the children” supported by a team of well-trained passionate staff and served with nutritious meals, parents can be at ease that “Our Children’s House” is the place where their children can thrive happily to meet their fullest potential.

Pedagogy

Bringing the world to the children’ indicates that here at “Our Children’s House” we adopt an Eclectic approach to teaching and implement the International Preschool Curriculum. It is delivered using various successful teaching methods that:

 

  • about3Encourage children’s independence and self-direction. Where children are valued and allowed to learn at their own pace to make connections with their learning.
  • Engage children in symbolic play and help them to learn by manipulating symbols. Participation in hands-on activities that include hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting & touching can enhance a child’s potential to learn by putting the child in the centre of this educational experience.
  • Allow children to have fun and be actively involved to help develop their learning skills more quickly.
  • Inspire children to think creatively, critically, and actively in preparation for future academic learning. Teachers scaffold children’s active learning and experimenting as children explore the world around them.
  • Allow children to make their choices in the classroom, while interacting with a wide variety of materials, ideas and people.
  • Value children’s diversity and respect for themselves, others and the world around them.
  • Help children to be collaborators, problem-solvers and team builders to know and understand negotiating skills, turn taking skills and develop leadership qualities.
  • Inspire children to be thinkers and philosophers by encouraging questioning & exploration as children start to make connections between ideas, thoughts, and the surrounding environment.
