The primary aim of the Chiltern House programme is to nurture a growing independence along with positive self-esteem and self-image and instil in children a love of learning through their earliest experiences. Chiltern House offers programmes from Nursery to Kindergarten and also provides a Learning Support programme for children who need additional help to learn. The curriculum of each programme has been carefully structured and planned and includes the Oxford Reading Tree scheme from the United Kingdom, a holistic 5-strand Mathematics programme, Physical Education lessons on a weekly basis, Cooking & Research activities, Art & Craft, Mandarin, Music, and Speech & Drama (which includes participating in Trinity College London’s Young Performers Certificate).
Through providing focused activities that develop specific concepts, and a balance of play and exploration-based activities, our educators can work with small groups of children and provide a more individualised programme. This approach develops our children’s skills in managing time, making choices and decisions and internalised motivation to learn. Mandarin is often taught using a more whole-group approach, with a range of learning styles catered for in the activities planned. As such, our children experience variety in approaches and styles, enabling them to subsequently adapt to a diverse range of primary school settings.
