Mulberry Learning’s preschool learning practices

Preschool serves as a stepping stone between early childhood and the start of a child’s formal education journey. As such, these formative years ought to be maximised fully.

Here are 3 unconventional techniques adopted by Mulberry Learning which tap into the full learning potential of preschoolers:

1. Using Habits Of Mind – a framework used by MOE’s gifted education programme

Mulberry Learning follows the Habits Of Mind curriculum, which identifies 16 key habits to aid in the dilemmas of everyday life.

These include essential concepts such as managing impulsivity – the ability to manage one’s emotions and thinking before acting, hence preventing rash behaviour and unintended consequences.

Shifting away from a sole focus on grades, imparting soft skills such as impulse management and flexible thinking fulfil the crucial development of a strong Emotional Quotient (EQ).

2. Encourage discussions and self-directed learning with a renowned Italian teaching approach

Originating from Italy as a progressive approach in early childhood education, Reggio Emilia is centered around self-directed learning.

Instead of committing entire textbooks’ worth of information to memory without actually processing the information, kids form their own understanding based on observations, interactions and communication.

3. Getting a head-start in math and languages through Mulberry Learning’s signature programmes

Under a collection of programmes called iLearn, Mulberry Learning follows a systematic pathway for kids to stay on top of their new learnings and prevent intimidation or aversion when difficulties arise.

With programme sessions like Literacy Fun, Maths Quest and Chinese Master that are fun and enriching yet easy to grasp, students get to boost their competency across all subjects and enter primary school as confident and well-rounded learners.
