welcome

The first few years of a child’s life are the formative years of childhood.

They should be filled with love, play, fun and laughter. Nothing on earth is more precious than a smile on your little one’s face. You’d give your child the world if you could, but a happy and secure homely environment, a teacher who enjoys giving her love and attention, consistent support by all our staff, a strong foundation, a well-rounded education and positive self-esteem are an excellent start. That’s exactly what your little one will receive from us at LITTLE BEAN.

 

We understand the anxiety you feel about choosing the perfect childcare facility for your LITTLE BEAN. We also understand that you’re wondering what your little one is doing while you are at work. We realize that you’d like to share in all their special moments. At LITTLE BEAN we make the most of every precious moment with your little one – all in a warm, nurturing and safe environment.

We focus on teaching skills, concepts and knowledge required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, loving and homely atmosphere where the children can acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years. We acknowledge the potential in each child to reach their optimum ability; therefore, there is less emphasis on competitiveness and more emphasis on individual achievement.

Education and Curriculum

Language Arts

This core content learning area covers areas of linguistic development, comprehension skills and language. Little Bean has also developed a phonics program that includes a program from the UK called Letterland.

Socio-Emotional

Social and emotional skills are crucial aspects of interpersonal development. We aim to harness individual characteristics while reinforcing positive actions that can improve confidence, leadership, team involvement and self-reflection. At Little Bean we have developed and embedded activities throughout its programs that prompt learners to interact, think and reflect with an objective of providing a well-rounded child that is fully prepared for life ahead.

Numeracy

Numeracy incorporates sequential patterning, geometry, basic algebra and problem solving.

Science

Ranging from mechanics and physics to biology and environmental science, our programs are packed with deeply enriching science experiments and inquiry based activities.

Creative Arts

What some children view as fun can be serious learning. We promote this through many avenues of art, from your fine arts (painting, coloring, molding) to music and role-playing. Creative Arts is the greatest area for children to start developing their imagination.

Motor Skills

Motor skills are broken down into two categories, fine and gross. Fine Motor Skills include cutting, finger painting, and hand control. Gross Motor Skills range from balancing to team play. Little Bean also believes that play-based activities are often the most exciting method in achieving a learning objective, and is therefore among the most effective. We have incorporated play-based learning into all of our programs.

Parent Involvement

 

 

All parents are encouraged to participate in our activities as much as possible. This includes, but is not limited to sharing special talents with the children, assisting with scheduled activities, etc.

Security

 

On enrolment, you will be given a security code to grant you access to the property. Please keep this code confidential, and under no circumstances allow your child to know what the code is. Please escort your child into the property and hand him/her over to the teacher on duty. Do not allow your child to enter the premises unaccompanied. We have a security guard on duty during school hours.

Parents must please make sure the gate is closed when entering or leaving the school premises at all times.  It only takes a second for a child to go out when it’s left open.
