E-Bridge Curriculum Overview

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach, our Learning Through Inquiry curriculum provides children and educators opportunities for explorations, investigations, problem-solving, developing critical thinking and knowledge construction. We believe in setting the foundations for lifelong learning through the development of learning dispositions such as Perseverance, Reflectiveness, Appreciation, Inventiveness, Sense of wonder & curiosity, and Engagement (Nurturing Early Learners’ Guide). Our inquiry process integrates learning across all areas; language & literacy, cognitive & numeracy, creative arts, social & emotional development, physical development conducted in English and Chinese language.

Our holistic approach ensures that children have a smooth transition from pre-school to primary one through opportunities such as:

  • Writing, phonological awareness, reading and computer experiences
  • Representation of ideas, thoughts and feelings through symbolic languages e.g. drawing, painting, dancing and drama
  • Mathematical experiences e.g. counting, using number symbols, measuring, sorting, comparing, classifying and problem-solving
  • Scientific investigations, observing, predicting, forming hypotheses, exploring and discovering
  • Outdoor play e.g. climbing and balancing, aiming and catching, experiencing nature
  • Exploration through the use of their senses
  • Social engagement e.g. listening, sharing and representing ideas with others

Our curriculum is informed and guided by:

  • Early Years Development Framework (EYDF) by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA)
  • Nurturing Early Learners: A Curriculum Framework in Singapore (NEL Framework) – (A Curriculum Framework for Kindergartens by the Ministry of Education [MOE]) and
  • EtonHouse Early Years Learning Goals
