Its child-led curriculum and fab facilities are just two reasons why the Early Learning Village at the Australian International School scooped Gold for this prestigious award..
The Best Early Learning Program, as part of the Singapore Education Awards 2021, celebrates a school that is tops when it comes to its provision for young learners. From super cool facilities through to friendly (and highly experienced) staff, plus a well-rounded curriculum – all this, and more, was on the list for judging this year’s entries. And the winner, the Early Learning Village at the Australian International School, ticks all the boxes (and then some). The inquiry-based preschool, catering for kids from two months to five years, has it covered for little learners. Here’s why…
Why the Australian International School won Best Early Learning Program
The Early Learning Village at the Australian International School is true to its name, creating a community feel (AKA a village) that kids love being part of. And the kids take centre stage when it comes to every decision made here. The curriculum is child-led and co-constructed, so it’s relevant to that particular cohort, and kids are encouraged to take ownership of their learning from the get-go. What’s more, the teachers at the Australian International School are super welcoming, adding to the warm and engaged community feel. This extends to parents too, who are actively involved through termly Parent-Teacher interviews, StoryPark app updates, and Google meet-ups for new learners before they join. All this before we’ve even mentioned the facilities, which include learning pods and multiple playgrounds, cleverly designed with kids’ growing independence and agency in mind.
Why we love the Australian International School
It’s not just the Early Learning Village that’s fab at the Australian International School; the learning outcomes, plus super facilities, make it a great place for all ages. The school caters to kids from two months through to 18 years, adding to the sense of community here. We love that the Australian International School isn’t just about academics either; kids can enjoy a holistic, rounded education, emphasising arts and sports alongside academics. It’s no wonder they also scooped the Silver Award for Best Arts Program too!
Well done, Australian International School!
