Pedagogy & Curriculum

With our unique pedagogical approach, we holistically cultivate our children’s creative thinking and teamwork ethic. Through a play-based approach we ensure that all our young learners achieve rounded and balanced personal development and that all our children are capable of applying what they learn to their daily life.

The four key principles of Little Lion’s educational provision are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), an early years education programme with the purpose of giving “choice for parents and the best start for children”. EYFS is not only a national-level curriculum standard for all kindergartens in England , but also one of the most respected early years education systems in the world.

Based on the EYFS framework alongside the guidelines published for Chinese Kindergartens, Little Lions offers a broad and well-balanced curriculum for children aged 2 to 6.

  • C1, 2 to 3 years old
  • C2, 3 to 4 years old
  • C3, 4 to 5 years old
  • C4, 5 to 6 years old

Our age-appropriate curriculum is designed to encourage our children’s learning processes (memory, attention, observation) and cognitive skills (reasoning, comparing and contrasting, classification), as well as the acquisition of specific information (name and shape of letters, nursery rhymes).

RECOGNITION THAT EVERY CHILD IS UNIQUE

Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Our children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships. Teachers observe each child’s development and learning, plan for next steps in learning and support children to develop a positive sense of their own identity and culture.

POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS

Positive relationships are warm and loving and foster a sense of belonging. Our teachers are sensitive and responsive to the child’s needs, feelings and interests, supportive of the child’s own efforts and independence, and stay consistent in setting clear boundaries.

ENABLING ENVIRONMENTS

In Little Lions, we offer stimulating resources relevant to all the children’s cultures and communities, rich learning opportunities through play and playful teaching, and support for children to take risks in exploring and expressing themselves ‘in a hundred ways’.

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Children develop and learn in different ways. We teach our children by ensuring challenging, playful opportunities across the prime and specific areas of learning and development, and foster the characteristics of effective learning.

Well-balanced School Schedule for Healthy & Happy Learning

Children’s well-beiing and their unique development needs are taken into consideration when designing the class’s daily schedule. For example, our C1 students will enjoy a tailor-made class schedule from 8:30a.m and ending at 4:30p.m. with enough time for lunchbreak, which ensures a whole day of energetic learning and playing.
