Our PCF Programmes
Our kindergartens offer programmes for the following age groups:
Entry Criterion: 30 months or above (at point of entry)
Entry Criterion: Turn 4 years old (on 1 January)
Entry Criterion: Turn 5 years old (on 1 January)
Entry Criterion: Turn 6 years old (on 1 January)
Our programmes range from 2hrs to 4hrs daily and the cost of each programme differs accordingly. The school terms are set by the Ministry of Education. There are 4 school terms per year, with each term consisting of 10 weeks. Each academic year begins in January and ends in November. Pupil Registration is open to the public from April - June of each year.
Our programmes are based on MOE's new Pre-school Curriculum Framework that adopts a holistic approach to teaching and learning.
Our programmes emphasize purposeful play through which children learn:
- to make choices based on reasoning and problem- solving skills
- to communicate effectively and be socially adept with peers and adults
- to be curious about the world and to explore and discover for themselves
Our PCF Teachers
PCF principals and teachers are trained in early childhood education, in accordance with the requirements of the Ministry of Education. All our Principals are at least diploma- trained and many have a degree in early childhood education. PCF ensures that the teachers meet MOE's requirements and provides opportunities for them to upgrade and develop further through scholarships and bursaries.
In recent years, several of our kindergartens and teachers have received MOE Awards for Kindergarten Excellence in the areas of teaching and innovation and we are proud of them.
