St. James’ Church Kindergarten (SJCK) provides a bilingual environment that offers high quality early education and nurtures values based on Christian principles. SJCK desires to develop and demonstrate godly character expressed as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Diverse approaches are integrated in our programme to support children’s discovery and exploration of the world around them. The Project Approach framework anchors the many experiential projects that emerge serendipitously from our environment. Their Creative Sensory Playscape and Nature Playscape provide children with endless opportunities for sensorial engagement and social interaction. SJCK believes that language is acquired naturally in such settings that offer children playful and meaningful interactions.
Ang Mo Kio Primary School
20 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3, Singapore 569920
Being the first school to be built in Ang Mo Kio New Town which was being developed during the late seventies, Ang Mo Kio Primary School strives to deliver a curriculum customised to provide students with a broad range of learning experiences that will help them to discover their talents and interests, and to gain the knowledge, skills and values needed to thrive in the 21st century. This curriculum is guided by the school vision, “Every Child, a Leader of Self and For Others, with a Passion for Excellence” and aims to develop the Leadership Habits in students during their formative years. Underpinning this vision is a firm belief that literacy is the key to unlock all these possibilities for their students.
