More than just a playground
Our new discovery centre underlines Canadian International School’s focus on facilitating academic excellence in the Kindergarten years through play-based learning in environments that nurture creativity and exploration. Hands-on exploration in the Primary years solidifies concepts and understanding more concretely than rote learning. By the age of 10, students who have “played” in their formative years excel in creativity, intelligence, oral expression and work habits.
Our Outdoor Discovery Centre is an extension of our indoor classrooms, filled with textures, sounds and smells unique to the outdoors. There are lots of purpose-built areas for children to interact with nature and run around as well as spaces where they can withdraw and quietly reflect. Spaces include a play fort, a mud kitchen, a sound garden, a natural tunnel and grassy hill, a creative play space with loose parts, a bike track and quiet areas intentionally designed to build minds and bodies, and nurture strong connections to nature.
If you would like to explore our wonderful Outdoor Discovery Centre and learn more about the benefits of outdoor learning in the Kindergarten and Primary years, please join us on Friday, 24 February 2017, 9am at Tanjong Katong campus for our opening celebrations.
