Here at The Little Tree House, we ensure that your child is both socially and academically ready for their formal schooling experience in Year 1. This is accomplished by systematically developing their leadership, reading, writing, numeracy, communication and critical thinking skills. We believe that children’s potential can be unlocked as they feel empowered and valued to be the decision-
Thematic approach is an interdisciplinary teaching and learning approach, where themes form the core content of the curriculum. These themes are relevant to children’s real life experiences, enabling them to build connections between prior and new knowledge. Each theme is presented in all of the learning areas so that children are able to making meaningful connections between different concepts and the holistic understanding of the world. Using the thematic approach, we also ensure that children are responsible for their own learning; this can be done by allowing the children to actively search for multiple resources that are related to the topic, and to think critically on how one activity is related to another.

Through storytelling, activities and daily routines, teachers put emphasis on interactions that affect children’s behaviour, thoughts, feelings and actions, encouraging the building of positive characters.
Play is a child’s work, which is the key tool for young children’s development and learning. It is a natural activity for them to invent, discover and learn about the world around them. Learning centres are thus set up within each classroom to encourage hands-
Reading is one of the most important skills children learn in the early years. We believe that reading is progressive and thus careful levelling of children’s reading abilities ensures every child become a confident, motivated, and lifelong reader. Besides having a wide range of reading materials in the library, we also adopt a specific reading scheme in supporting every step of a child’s reading journey.
