Journey through our English & Mathematics Prep course
Our Kindergarten 1 Programme cultivates a love for English in our students by using themes that interest young children, such as ‘Insects’, ‘Transportation’ and ‘Sea creatures’. The world comes alive in the classroom with engaging activities including stories, games, and interactive whiteboard activities. Children’s public speaking skills will be developed progressively through show-and-tell sessions and frequent interactions with teachers and peers.
The Mathematics programme will equip our preschoolers with important mathematical concepts. Learning is enhanced through hands-on activities such as manipulatives and puzzles in a fun learning environment.
Our Kindergarten 2 Programme continues engaging our students with topics that fascinate young minds and bringing the outside world into the classroom through stories, games, and lively discussions between students and teachers. Creative writing skills are further developed to create a stable foundation built to support them through Primary school and beyond. With an abundance of opportunities to participate and present in class, students will gain confidence in their abilities.
The Mathematics programme will employ experiential learning methods to strengthen basic mathematical concepts in time for Primary school, making the transition to Primary Mathematics a seamless one for our students.
Mrs Shum is a very dedicated teacher. She has given me detailed feedback to improve my writing and her lessons are very engaging. I really appreciate the personalised feedback which helps me identify areas I should work on more. She goes the extra mile to share interesting facts every lesson which has helped expand my general knowledge in so many ways. With Mrs Shum's tips and MS Worksheets explaining how to master various components, I'm able to answer questions with greater confidence. Lastly, Mrs Shum cares deeply about our emotional well-being, and she always reminds us that trying our best is more important than the results.
I would like to thank the Chinese Language teacher very much for her effort, concern and encouragement for my child! He is very happy to be in her class and has enjoyed the Chinese Language lessons very much. He has tried his very best in the PSLE examination last year 2022 and his Chinese has improved. The constant encouragement from his Chinese Language teacher makes a difference and goes a long way! Thank you Mr Kuek and all the teachers very much who has taught him and shared during the online bootcamp and the webinars! We really appreciate the effort, time, love and understanding put into preparation of the examination booklets and materials and staying behind after the online lessons to answer the students' questions! Wishing all the teachers and staff a very Happy blessed year 2023 ahead!
Dear Mrs Shum, thank you so much for all the guidance and support you’ve given me since i joined ms. Since i joined at a pretty late stage, i didn’t expect myself to acquire so much valuable knowledge that allowed me to learn English from a whole new perspective, as well as to perceive life in many different aspects. Thank you for always being so generous in sharing with us your personal experiences that engaged us during class, and making English such a fun subject for us explore the wonders of it! Thank you for taking the extra mile to further support me in English Literature as well, it really has been very useful!! It has truly been an eye-opening experience learning from you and I will remember these lessons as part of the unforgettable memories of learning in this subject❤️🥰
Mrs Shum is a caring teacher who is concerned about her students and their well-being. She has helped me improve in my English and has always been very caring towards me. She stresses on our mental health and has encouraged us a lot. Her teaching is amazing and i love how she shares interesting facts related to the topic we were studying and she exposed us to the basics of general paper too. To add, Mrs Shum gives specific feedback on our work which allowed us to know what we can improve on. The MS comprehension worksheets were also of great help as they allow me to know how to answer certain questions in a straightforward manner. Mrs Shum marks quite strictly which also further prepared me well for the O-levels where the marking is usually more lenient. As a result, I learnt how to do better and could gauge where i stand. Mrs Shum also made me realise that i was better in personal recount essays which allowed me to do well in the O-levels. Overall, MS worksheets were of great help and useful with specific tips and strategies. Thank you so much.
Hi Ms Mavis, I would like to thank you for the teaching. Your lessons are engaging and I can always focus on it. I still remember vividly your patience when answering all my questions. Even though I have a lot of questions, you still answer them using your best effort which I appreciate very much. You are a great teacher 👍 Thank you very much and wish you a great year ahead !
Dear Mr Alvin, Just want to text you to say "Thank you for all you have done for all the kids! Elvyn scored AL6 for his 2022 PSLE!“ A special mention to Teacher Meili, Teacher Audrey, Teacher Ryan and 丁老师。Not only were they never annoyed by his endless questions and constant requests for ways to improve himself, they guided him and encouraged him to do more and better. We are so blessed to have met all of you! I had introduced friends to send their kids to MS and will surely help to promote MS in the future too!
Teacher Lucia is patient and kind. She went the extra mile to observe my child's progress and has helped her to gain more confidence when interacting with teachers and peers.
Thank you Teacher Lucia for guiding Olivia! She has improved tremendously in reading and speaking after attending your lessons. Your lessons are fun, and Olivia looks forward to every class.
Teacher Lucia is caring, supportive, and conducts the K2 lessons well! My girl enjoys her lessons and looks forward to attending them! The programme has helped build my child's confidence.
