Our carefully designed environment facilitates the holistic development of children and enhances their creativity.
Some key features of our outdoor spaces include:
Tree deck playground
Our tree deck playground is specially designed to provide children ample opportunities to take calculated risks and develop their gross motor skills. These are made possible with features like a rope bridge, climbing net, wooden suspension bridge, sliding pole and wooden plank climbing wall.
Children also enjoy a large selection of tricycles and educational resources available.
Biodiversity and horticulture garden
In the garden, we practise biodiversity gardening with the intention of providing food and habitat for native species such as butterflies and beneficial insects. Children are also given firsthand experience of growing fruits, vegetables and herbs in our horticulture garden, which will be used occasionally in food preparation experiences in the Cookery Lab. They will be able to learn about the life cycle of plants and the variety of smells, textures and uses of the crops.
A large sand play area next to the Ficus tree provides ample room for children to explore and discover the properties of sand. There is also a water wall that allows children to discover the movement and speed of water. The water table enables children to learn about density properties of water.
Nestled between our garden space and sensory space are our visual arts and construction studios. Children can engage in painting and collage-making in this wide, green space which enhances creativity. The combination of building blocks, stumps, logs, branches, tyres and natural materials promotes constructive play and encourages the development of fine and gross motor skills.
