Empowering Children Through Our 3 Little Birds Preschool Programme
Vision & Mission
IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT LEARNING SHOULD BE AUTHENTIC, MEANINGFUL AND CHILD-DRIVEN WHERE, THE DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES AND VARIOUS TYPES OF INTELLIGENCES ARE VALUED AND RESPECTED BY PLACING HIGH VALUE ON CURIOUS EXPLORATION AND INDIVIDUALISTIC EXPRESSION.
We strive to construct a space where joy, freedom and respect flourish harmoniously. Where the importance of process is embraced and placed before product driven outcomes.
We proclaim a love for the natural world and dutifully to pass it onto our children. We declare that now exceeds in
importance over later where, childhood is not a race to a finish line thus, childhood is honoured.
We make our mission to promote the philosophies of ‘The Reggio Approach’ and to celebrate the advancement of the arts in ‘Early Childhood Education’.
