What we learnPre-NurseryK1 - K3Enrichment ProgramsSummer Camp

Introduction

Children are naturally curious, have great potential and have an innate interest in developing relationships. Fairchild programs build on this premise, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to learning and guided by the Ontario (Canada) Kindergarten Program and the Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide from Hong Kong.

Program Schedule

 

Pre-Nursery (Transition)

Age 2-3 yearsguided by the new EDB HK Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide

The new Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide (2017) states the importance of learning through play & inquiry, that learning should be joyful, and life should be balanced. Core statement: “To lay the foundation of lifelong learning by fostering in children an inquisitive mind, an interest in learning and exploration, a balanced development, a healthy self-concept, and the ability and confidence to adapt to the ever-changing world.” This philosophy compliments the Reggio Emilia approach.

 

K1, K2 and K3

Age 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6 yearsguided by the new Ontario Kindergarten Program

The Kindergarten Program (2016) was designed for 4 and 5-year-olds over a two-year school period. It describes how educators will help children learn through play and inquiry. Based on the most up-to-date information about child development and how children learn best, the Kindergarten Program provides a smooth transition from home or child care settings and a strong foundation for learning in the years to come, leading to long-term knowledge. This philosophy compliments the Reggio Emilia approach.

Enrichment Programs

Fairchild Ednovation Hub gives your child the opportunity to find their creative instincts, improve their social skills, make new friends or enjoy getting active with fitness opportunities through a variety of enrichment programs. The enrichment programs are developed and introduced at Fairchild with the same play-based philosophy that regular classes are designed. We want infants and toddlers to have fun, to move, to explore and to try things they might not otherwise do or experience during their regular classes.

Summer Camp

 

Each week, children will be engaged in an exciting, hands-on thematic project while getting a chance to explore a variety of activities such as sports, cooking, reading, storytelling, music, creative arts and STEM in an immersive English environment in Reggio style during summer.
