At Posso, we believe children have unfathomable minds to learn but are often too distracted by their environment. Therefore, we expose our children to our carefully tailored interactive programmes to draw out their talents and potential.
All our programmes, lesson plans and teaching materials are created by our very own staff and logistics team. These programmes aim to develop the multiple intelligences of each child, molding them into well-rounded individuals with their own unique strengths. Whilst these preschool programmes prepare your child for primary school years, we take the time to evaluate the dynamics of each class and the requirements of each student. This allows the teachers to adjust the pace and style of the lessons.
We believe in building a strong foundation in the early years of a child’s development. Your child is born with a a great deal of potential. Let them surprise you.
Our infant care programme caters for infants aged 2 – 18 months. Our activities focus on developing a child’s gross motor skills and building their reflex and control movements. Our infant play equipment provide appropriate sensory stimuli to boost a child’s coordination and sense of balance. In addition, our facility includes an indoor heated pool specifically designed for infant and toddler swimming which helps strengthen’s a baby’s heart, lungs and muscles and builds water confidence.

Our playgroup programme focuses on hands-on experiential and experimental learning experiences, designed to actively engage your child as he/she first steps into a structured learning environment. Our classes are filled with enjoyable activities such as games, music, art, stories, reading, writing, water and sand play, all designed to spark curiosity, encourage inquisitiveness and provide opportunity to develop their creative minds.
We focus on developing their gross motor skills and social skills, setting the foundation for further learning in later years.
Most importantly, to have fun and discover for themselves what an amazing place this world is!
Our Nursery 1 programme introduces more activities and games to reinforce and build on their language and math learning. Our children will be able to recognise and remember alpabets and basic numbers. We also start developing our children’s fine motor skills by immersing them into more fun-filled art and craft activities such as clay modelling and basic science experiments. As they get more familiar with their peers, they further develop their social skills and learn the importance of sharing and taking turns. Our children are also immersed in conversations and thought process and encouraged to start expressing their thoughts.
At this young age, all our lessons (math, science, art and craft and cookery) will be taught in Mandarin as well. We believe a strong bilingual proficiency foundations starts from young.
Continued literacy development will be an important focus of our Nursery 2 programme where children start to read specially tailored books and engage in story telling and group discussions to develop their phonetic skills. Children will learn to blend and form basic words using letters.
Simple arithmatic concepts such as adding and subtraction will be introduced using age-appropriate teaching aids (such as plastic ice cream scoops) to build on their math-readiness skills under a variety of learning experiences. Fine motor skills are further developed through paper craft activities such as rolling, shaping and gluing paper together to create beautiful pictures. These activities will also help develop the child’s creativity, patience, concentration and diligence.
Kindergarten 1 builds on the foundation in various fields set by earlier learning years by providing a progressive and stimulating learning process. More complex concepts and challenges are being presented which further develops a child’s language, numerical, hand-eye coordination, analytical and social skills. Children will learn the importance of teamwork and given opportunities to demonstrate their leadership skills through team games and speech and drama classes.
The programme will emphasis on building the children’s reading, writing and numerical skills. Science experiments will take on a more active role as children are exposed to more real-life physical concepts. All this with the all rounded experiences offered by our art and craft, cookery and fitness programmes.
Our Kindergarten 2 classes will focus on preparing your children for their first year at primary school. Children will be introduced to common aspects of primary school learning such as spelling and comprehension. They would be encouraged to form longer sentences and reinforce their grammar such as proper use of singular or plural.
Children will also be guided to make interesting introduction, comprehensive content and logical conclusions by identifying characters, problems and solutions. At this level, we will also introduce more real life concepts such as money, time and careers to prepare them for an exciting personal and learning journey ahead!
