Have you heard the buzz about town? We have a new look, a new name and a new foundation class. Fly into the Hornbills Nursery and Kindergarten, for 3 – 6 year olds, and watch your child soar!
This is the start of your child’s learning journey. From the moment you walk through the door, you can hear the buzz of happy, confident children hard at learning. Our purpose built, safe and spacious setting helps make learning a positive experience for all of our children.
Children enjoy a themed playing area, reading room and purpose-built classrooms and toilets. In addition, our students benefit from sharing some the campus’ services and facilities, including the qualified school nurse, library, swimming pool and smart devices.
Here children make excellent progress in all aspects of their learning. We follow a hybrid programme from the Early Years International Primary Curriculum. Students learn through a mixture of teacher-led, teacher-enhanced and child-initiated activities.
Come and experience our secure and stimulating learning environment where your child will feel supported, valued and cared for.
Step by Step
We’ll guide you and your child through each level:
Nursery (Age 3 – 4)
Nursery class is the first journey your child may take into the world on their own, which can be an emotional journey for both of you. We’ll ensure their days are buzzing with positivity, as our teachers adapt learning areas and structured activities that work within a free-flowing timetable.
Children are supported with their:
- social and emotional skills
- literacy and maths introduction
- exploration of the world around them through play
Reception (Ages 4- 5)
The Reception class is more structured than the Nursery class. The learning is tailored to meet the children’s needs and the Early Years’ topics. Reception is designed to prepare learners for formal classroom learning by providing children with the skills to access:
- reading initial letters and phonemes.
- writing letters, numbers and other symbols.
- recognition and application of numbers.
- social skills and social norms.
- play and exploring their personal learning.
Foundation (Age 5-6)
Our Foundation Class is specially designed to cater for students intending to join Standard 1 in Sekolah Sri Knewton. Your child will learn lots of new skills, which will help them in their transition to formal schooling, including:
- speaking and listening
- learning numbers and letters
- social skills and making friends
- playing and exploring
Our Foundation curriculum is carefully planned to make sure all children thrive and achieve.
The key areas include:
- PE and Swimming
- Bahasa Melayu
- Art and Craft
- Mathematics (taught in English)
- Creative and physical development
- Communication and listening skills
- Personal and social development
We aim to support each child to identify their own sense of identity and self-worth, as well as focusing on their individual needs and interests.
