The School year 2016-2017 is fast approaching and for sure parents are already thinking of what school they will send their kids to.
Just in time for the upcoming school season is the opening of Cambridge Child Development Centre in Gorordo, a Singapore international preschool that provides quality child care and early learning programmes for children from 10 months to 6 years old.
Cambridge was founded in Singapore and began operation in the Philippines in 2001. It entails all intellectual property as well as curriculum updates straight from Singapore. Teachers are highly calibrated with comprehensive training to be equipped with knowledge and teaching skills.
“We want to make learning fun.” CCLDI President Gerry Laperal said “We want kids to be interested in something, whether it’s writing, reading or math, because if you really care about something you will go out of your way to learn”.
Cambridge Philippines partnered with Lucia Chiong Sy for Cambridge Gorordo Center. Driven by her passion in teaching young children she was able to compare which system works best when it comes to teaching. “I believe children learn best if they are happy and enjoy what they are doing. Cambridge has that because they do not enforce too much pressure on the child. They just learn by experience, by playing, so there is fun in learning.” Lucia said.”Our principle is also less teaching, more observation on how we can dig the potential of the kid, so since this is a small class we can really see each individuality”.
Cambridge Philippines uses Project-Based Ecological Model (PBEM) Curriculum— an innovative, progressive and experiential approach to preschool education and take some element from the traditional way of teaching. This curriculum is child-focused to make every classroom routine fun and enjoyable. They also integrated Chinese Language as part of the curriculum.
