Our objective has always been to enable kids to learn while they are ‘in the zone’ and this can only be achieved when they are thinking, creating and having fun at the same time. Therefore, our teaching is ‘play-based’ with the combined elements of drawing, toy model building and games to reinforce the kids’ understanding of concepts. To make the program complete, the activities also include life skill essentials, offering opportunities to young learners to develop critical thinking and sense making as well as to encourage them to be inventive and to adopt inter-disciplinary thinking.
