For 45 minutes, our instructors will guide your little ones through a range of components:
Phonics Introduction: Dive into the world of letters and their corresponding sounds, providing a solid foundation for reading proficiency.
Poetry Time: Delight in thematic poetry designed for all to enjoy, perfect for sing-alongs and shared moments of lyrical joy.
Engaging Sensory Activity: Immerse your children in a sensory play activity that stimulates the senses and sparks creativity, making learning an interactive experience.
These will engage their minds and bodies in a fun-filled exploration of language.
Your children will laugh, sing, and dance as they develop their communication skills and build their vocabulary.
After the language adventure, we'll shift gears to 15 minutes of art exploration. During this time, your children will continue to absorb and learn new words. They also get exposure to an artist of the week. Our teachers will encourage your children to express themselves through creativity, helping them unlock their imagination and develop their fine motor skills. Your children will explore different art mediums and styles while building their visual literacy from a young age.
Current promotion: Attend a trial session for just $50, and if you decide to purchase a package of 4 or 10 sessions afterwards, the cost of the trial will be fully waived.
Celestine is a mother to two free-spirited toddlers and hence spends a lot of her time reading many children's books to them. She enjoys this bonding time with them, even if it sometimes means having to read the same book over and over again! She hopes that they will grow to love books and the English language, just as she did. It never ceases to amaze her how mere words can convey so much meaning and so many emotions. Witnessing the wide-eyed delight of children at the end of a story when everything comes to a close is most rewarding.
"My kids have taught me that the potential of children is boundless - and I hope to be able to bring out the best in every child that I encounter in class," she shares.
Her years of writing experience drive her to guide children to write with more flourish and colour.
Celestine particularly enjoys the works of Shakespeare as well as medieval fantasy stories – because they transport her to a different world and time which she finds fascinating. The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis (which some students may also use to describe the last day of exams) holds a passage that has a profound effect on her: "And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before".
