About Capella Preschool
Engaging, Exploring and Evaluating Through Guided Inquiry
Capella Preschool is set out to build a safe and enriching environment which encourages a joyful attitude towards learning. We are a preschool designed to approach topics and problems from different angles. In order to nurture our children to be critical thinkers, our teachers plan the different invitations of learning experiences and provocations which excite their sense of wonder and make them ponder. We are bringing the universe to them through explorations that are far beyond the academic aspect of learning.
As we believe that every child is an inquisitive child, we invite children’s curiosity and teach them how to form questions around different topics of interests constantly. Investigation and exploration are the actions needed in order to answer the questions they formed at the initial part. Our children learn to incorporate different techniques and methods to extract as much information. From there on, they learnt to reflect and pull conclusions that will spark their next inquiries, investigations and more enrich conclusions.
The Capella Story
“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”
A piece of proverbial wisdom that inspired the founding team of Early Childhood Practitioners which led to the birth of Capella Preschool Singapore.
As principled practioners with visions and missions, we believe that Early Childhood Education is not just about equipping children with the necessary knowledge and skills so that they can do well in school with textbook answers. There is more to it, like equipping them with their own voices and languages to express themselves, their understanding and learning. More importantly, we must instil the right attitude in children towards learning that will sustain for a lifetime.
To be an early childhood organisation that empowers lives and raise leaders in their own way
1. Creating an environment that celebrates and embraces children for who they are
2. Providing a curriculum that ignites children’s curiosity which provokes them to investigate and communicate their findings confidently
3. Building a collaborative partnership with families and communities
4. Continuously growing our educators to uphold professional teaching practices.
