What happens early, matters for a lifetime.
– Dr Stephen Phua, Chairman of the BRMCK management committee
We are effectively bilingual, communicating using English and Chinese daily. Our nursery children are exposed to 70% Chinese and 30% English, while the kindergarten children have a balanced 50% English and 50% Chinese exposure in their daily lessons.
As we move into the 21st century, we want our children to have an inquiring mind. They need to be open-minded and have the skills to communicate. Children will have many opportunities to explore and ask questions.
We want our children to be balanced. We focus on six domains – Literacy, Numeracy, Environmental Awareness, Arts and Aesthetics, Physical and motor development as well as being socially and emotionally adequate to be happy and well-adjusted. We also ensure that our children are prepared well to enter the primary schools in Singapore.
We use a thematic approach supported by learning corners. Children will use these learning corners independently or in small groups. They will be actively learning new concepts in a playful way. We will engage children in projects to facilitate hands-on inquiry-based learning. They will participate in authentic learning experiences and apply their knowledge in different transdisplinary situations, as they discover and develop important character traits for the 21st century –
to be balanced, knowledgeable, thinkers, open-minded, communicators, caring, principled, inquirers, reflective, risk-takers. In order to ensure that the processes for inquiry-based and transdisciplinary learning happen in our school, BRMCK is now a candidate school of the International Baccalaureate World School.
Being a kindergarten anchored in the principles based on the Bible, we want to develop children who are principled and caring. Our character and moral education is based on the teachings in the Christian Bible. We endeavor to nurture in our children the fruits of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-25). We have daily assemblies and devotions incorporated into everyday lessons.
