Research has shown that early childhood physical education is important and improves more than just physical wellness. It also stimulates mental and emotional development in children. Many times, physical education in schools is neglected and children are usually confined to classroom settings. Little Gems believe in full development of a child – not only do mental and moral qualities count, but physical capacity is also equally important. We want our children to be healthy and fit individuals.
As such, Little Gems provides an all-rounded physical education to develop our children’s physical aspect, ranging from simple stretching, balancing and flexibility to more rigorous exercises like trampoline jumping, rock climbing, running and trekking. Enrichment programmes such as swimming and cycling are also offered in semesterly basis.
During the preschool years, young children are developing a sense of initiative and creativity. They are exploring the ability to create and communicate using a variety of media. Digital technologies provide one more outlet for them to demonstrate their creativity and learning.
Little Gems aims to incorporate our children’s learning with appropriate interactive media that is designed to give children another form of learning experience. For instance, they learn computer literacy such as typing and developing slides; they learn to create videos and e-story books etc.
