The Tots & Teddies
At Tots & Teddies, we’ve carefully crafted a well-balanced curriculum that adopts a thematic, inquiry-based approach through purposeful play, with the last term specially devoted to projects.
Children construct knowledge through hands-on activities while concepts are reinforced through learning centres, rhymes, songs and field trips. Numeracy and phonics are introduced from Nursery onwards.
Learning is enhanced through strong, nurturing, secure and positive relationships. Learning environments are planned carefully such that they’re safe, secure, fun, responsive to children’s interests, spark curiosity and creativity, as well as invite exploration, manipulation and a sense of discovery.
Our desired outcomes are that children:
- Are secure and confident
- Are happy and safe
- Are creative and compassionate
- Have strong social and emotional skills
- Have strong foundations in numeracy and literacy
- Are Primary 1 ready by the end of K2
Besides arts and crafts and storytelling, Tots & Teddies engages quality external specialists for weekly enrichment activities at no extra charge:
- Bi-weekly excursions to the children’s playground at Gardens by the Bay
- Indoor gym sessions
- Speech and drama
- Coding classes that introduce logical thinking in a fun way (for pre-school K1s and K2s)
- Chinese Wushu classes
Between terms, kids can try their hand at making pizza and cookies with our in-house professional chef, amongst many other fun and enriching activities. Infants don’t miss out on the fun either, with our infant educarers monitoring their development milestones and providing daily updates to parents through our dedicated app.
Learning is enhanced through strong, nurturing, secure and positive relationships. We hire only experienced, warm educarers and teachers providing small intimate classes with low teacher-student ratios: 1:3 for infant care and 1:5 for childcare/preschool.
Our bilingual inquiry-based curriculum is reviewed by the Head of Department of a renowned local primary school to ensure it’s “P1-ready” and executed in a fun way so kids can be kids. We ensure your child seamlessly adapts to primary school life upon graduating from kindergarten.
Collaboration with Parents
Our close partnership with parents is vital in enhancing children’s learning. That’s why we document children’s learning regularly and update parents on a daily basis.
In engaging parents to participate in activities; we invite them to join us in our Reading Programme, Home Projects,
field trips and classroom or school activities. To ensure parents are well-informed of their children’s development, we
provide regular updates to parents through our digital app, phone calls and email. In addition, we hold half-yearly
parents-teachers meetings and at our year-end open house.
