Laying Strong Foundations in Values, Attitudes, Knowledge and Skills
On to a Strong Start at MOE Kindergarten!
As part of MOE’s efforts to provide strong foundations for every child and develop them into well-rounded individuals and lifelong learners, the MOE Kindergartens’ (MK) curriculum is designed to nurture pre-school children holistically so that they are self-confident, have strong social skills, and a good foundation in literacy and numeracy. Children in MKs are provided with an exciting learning journey through two flagship programmes – the HI-Light Programme and Starlight Literacy Programme.
Kindergarten Care, a full-day service for MK children (7am to 7pm), is available at most MOE Kindergartens.
The MK Open Houses on 2 April and 9 April are great opportunities for parents with pre-school children to find out more about these programmes.
Visit an Open House near you and speak to the educators to find out more!
If you know of any parents who are looking for quality and affordable kindergarten programme, do encourage them to RSVP today at www.moe.gov.sg/moekindergarten
Operation WE Clean UP
Earlier last month, MOE announced that students in all schools will be involved in and help each other in the daily cleaning of their school environment. Through this, schools hope to inculcate in students good life habits, and a sense of responsibility and care for their own space and for shared spaces.
Such values cannot be inculcated in our children without parental support and partnership in mutually reinforcing these values in school and at home. On Sunday, 8 May 2016, as part of the Keep Singapore Clean (KSC) Movement the Public Hygiene Council (PHC) is organising a one-day mass litter picking exercise to involve everyone in Singapore for a truly clean Singapore. You and your children can be part of this island-wide effort either by leading an ‘Operation’ or joining an ‘Operation’:
Lead an ‘Operation’:
· Commit to a location and register here
· Rally your family, friends and community to join you
· Attend a briefing session conducted by PHC on 9 April 2016
Join an ‘Operation’
· Choose your preferred ‘Operation’ location here(locations will be displayed by end April)
· Contact the respective organiser to sign up
· Encourage your family and friends to join you
For more details, do visit PHC’s website. If you have any suggestions on how you can support the KSC Movement, email PHC at the following email address:publichygienecouncil.sg@gmail.
