b) use language such as position words, number words, names of shapes and so on are designed.
Under the guidance of teachers, children maneuver and engage meaningfully in the investigation of things around them, trying to find answers to their questions. They will grow into bright shining stars!
Physical development in kindergarten is about improving skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement. TSS provides children with the programs and space to carry out the physical activities at the physical stations in the hall as well as in the play room.
Physical development helps children develop confidence in what they do and enables them to feel the positive benefits of being healthy and active.
Art, Music and Dance
Children are naturally spontaneous and exuberant in the ways they express their ideas and feelings. We would like to nurture the children to be creative to enable children to make connections between one area of learning to another and, in doing so, extend their understanding of the world through learning art, music and dance.
