Implementing the STEAM approach – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics – along with the use of technological aids and coding activities, Skool4Kidz is the first preschool in Singapore to participate in the global Hour of Code (HOC) in 2017.
As part of Skool4Kidz’s curriculum, students are taught the basics of planning, coding and sequencing using programmable technology toys that develop critical thinking skills.
The Code-a-pillar (above) has body segments that can be put together in various combinations to form movements.
The Kibo (above) is a wooden robot designed that preschoolers can build from scratch and programmed to navigate obstacles.
The Bee-Bot (above) is a colourful and easy-to-operate robot for younger children to code as part of sequential thinking development.
Skool4Kidz’s programmes focuses on integrating learning and technology to better prepare children for the digital era ahead.
Through games and activities with the above toys, children discover coding, sequencing and design processes that help with problem solving.
Skool4Kidz will be partnering the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) at the Singapore’s largest tech carnival SG:Digital Wonderland, previously known as Tech Saturday, in July. By implementing technology aids into its centres’ programme, Skool4Kidz strives to provide a learning experience on technology for young children.
