The A-Plus Preschool Program provides your child with the ideal learning environment for holistic child development. Anchored on an expertly designed curriculum that is based on Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory, your child is guaranteed to experience optimal learning process that will provide the necessary foundation for growing up into a successful, responsible member of the community, with a lifelong love for learning.
The MI Theory is applied in the classrooms through the Center-based Learning (CBL) approach. CBL builds a comprehensive learning environment that will allow students to enhance their parallel thinking capabilities by relating each concept to one another. Prepared activities in the learning centers are designed to meet individual students’ needs, allowing them to discover concepts and ideas thereby, constructing their own knowledge.
We have specially designed programs that are geared to address the specific needs of kids aged 1.5 to 6.5 years. Based on the understanding of the very special needs of young children in this stage of their development, the programs provide them with meaningful learning experiences in a caring and nurturing environment.
Daily Mandarin lessons are included in the Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Kindergarten Levels and Abacus Mental Arithmetic lessons are taught to the Nursery and Kindergarten students.

Our multi-sensory approach to learning seeks to empower your children with age-appropriate experiences and interactions that will enable them to construct knowledge through investigation, story and play. This approach will improve their coordination or motor skills, verbal or language skills and other basic foundation skills that will help them successfully transition to higher levels of challenges, such as problem-solving.
