Our Tanjong Katong (TK) Campus, is smaller and more intimate as it houses students 3 to 12 years of age. Classrooms for our youngest learners are warm, colourful, spacious and are grouped together, ensuring a strong sense of community. Each classroom has direct access to the outdoors and our newly built Outdoor Discovery Centre. Other learning spaces include a library, an amphitheatre, a STEAM makerspace and an outdoor classroom.
About CIS’ Outdoor Discovery Centres
Our Outdoor Discovery Centres are 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.
Through play with mud, water, sand and loose objects such as sticks, stones, mesh and rope, children engage their imaginative and creative thinking while solving problems. They learn to calculate, measure, invent, estimate, specify, analyse, hypothesise and test theories, thereby developing their thinking, communication and research skills.
