The Learning Environment
At Callidus Preschool, our classrooms are enclosed - this allow children to learn in a quiet and calm environment which helps them to be more attentive during class activities.
We provide the following facilities to support children's learning:
1. Learning Centers:
- Math Center
- Discovery Center
- Blocks Center
- Music Center
- Arts Center
- Dramatic Play Center
- Library Center
- Fine Motor Center
- Gross Motor Center
The learning centers provide children the opportunities to explore and discover different areas of learning that aim to develop the six domains of development: Language and literacy, Numeracy, Discovery of the World, Aesthetic and Creative Expressions, Motor Skills Development, Social and Emotional Development.
We use digital devices, audio and visual media, as supplementary teaching tools to the concrete learning materials to extend children's learning.
3. Display Boards
Language boards for English and Mother Tongue are set up to augment children's learning. Children's works, such as arts, crafts and writing, will be displayed on the boards around the classrooms.
There are various outdoor play venues around our school.
A playground is located just next to our school. Children can have fun with their peers while developing their gross motor skills and enjoying the fresh air.
Bishan Active Park is just a stone's throw away. There are sports facilities and playground in the open space amidst natural greenery for children to play and roam free.
Health and Safety
Your child's health and safety is our school's top priority.
Safety gates are installed at stairwells and entrances/ exits in the school to ensure that our children stay safe within the school. Railings are provided to assist children in their mobility and prevent mishaps from happening.
To minimize the effect of occasional haze conditions and the associated risk of infection and health problems, our classrooms are installed with air purifiers and air conditioners that are equipped with air purifying functionality that removes PM2.5 particles and airborne bacteria and viruses.
