As a mum to a 2-year-old toddler myself, looking out for preschools is high on my to-do list these days. So I was very interested to visit Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong in leafy, green Bukit Timah.
Opened in October 2013, Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong is the newest addition to the Learning Vision family. I was greeted by Ms Karen Lee — a lady with 22 years of experience in early childhood education, and the principal of Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong.
As Ms Lee proceeded to take me on a tour of the preschool, I was immediately delighted by the tranquility and beauty of the surroundings.
She explained that kids at Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong are often taken on nature walks where they get to enjoy and appreciate the environment.
Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong: Teaching approach
The child as the protagonist
With a child-centered curriculum, at Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong, kids are viewed as active, self-directed and competent learners who initiate their own learning.
They are actively engaged in hands-on exploratory learning experiences through making independent choices and selecting their own activities.
The teacher as facilitator
The teachers at Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong plan engaging and meaningful experiences that build on the children’s understanding, and they also provide appropriate resources within the environment to facilitate the children’s learning.
Children are able to work independently as they direct their own learning in collaboration with their peers, rather than rely solely on their teachers for directions.
The process of learning is the focus
The processes of learning, rather than the end product, are the key focus in the teaching and learning process at Learning Vision @ Hwa Chong. Experience-centred, hands-on learning encourages kids to explore, experiment, inquire, investigate, interact and discover ideas and concepts.
