Smart Kids Educare Singapore started operation since 2007. The childcare centre is in a cottage-style semi-detached house located within the quiet and peaceful precinct of Seletar Hills East private estate along Yio Chu Kang road, the Northeastern part of Singapore. Over the years, children who had graduated after three to five years of spending their preschool education with us usually do pretty well in their primary school education and beyond. We credit that to the strong foundation we strive to build in them during their early years with us.  

Among our alumni, we have the talented Deborah who was selected to be in the School of The Arts, which requires stringent selection process in order to enter the Arts specialized secondary school. She won several awards in the rhythmic gymnastic competition and travels internationally for her dance competition. Recently, Sonata Dancewear even awarded her with a one-year scholarship program. 

We have the highly intelligent Kayden Yoo and Stephen Mills who are selected to be part of the Gifted Educational Programme by the Ministry of Education in Singapore. Stephen who is also musically inclined wins several awards every year for his drum routine and piano recital.

We have the creative in problem-solving Dean Chua, together with his team mates, who won the 1st Runner up in a Lego Competition at Science Centre.  They did research, added gears and automation parts with coding skills for their New Water Plant project.

We have a handful of children who also took part in the Stanford-Binet Educational Cognitive Assessments (IQ Testing) and scored in the Very Superior Intelligence range and above, out of which, three are accepted to join as members of Mensa.

English Literacy
Immersion
Literacy is the ability to read and write, listen and speak. In today's fast-moving world, it is critical that students develop the literacy skills they need to be able to read, write, think and communicate effectively.

We use phonics-approach to teach English Language. Phonics is a method for teaching reading and writing of the English language. The goal of phonics is to enable beginning readers to decode new written words by sounding them out, or, in phonics terms, blending the sound-spelling patterns. The simpler foundational components of English Language are as follows:-

• Speech Exercise and Phonemes
Phonemes is the smallest units of the spoken language. In English, there are about 44 phonemes.... for example, the word stop has four phonemes (s-t-o-p), while shop has three phonemes (sh-o-p).

• Phonemic Awareness and Spelling
Phonemic Awareness is the ability to hear, identify and manipulate these phonemes in spoken words.
Through the development of the phonemic awareness, we could now teach children the correspondence between these sounds and the spelling patterns (graphemes) that represent them.

• Reading and Writing
The ability to read fluently is a critical factor necessary for reading comprehension. Besides using phonics, we compliment reading fluently with other strategies such as High Frequency Words and Sight Words Recognition (with words that do not follow basic phonics principles to be ‘sounded out’).

Fine motor skills development starts with basic grasps like the palmar grasp and then the pincer grasp and eye-hand coordination as they practice penmanship and strengthening their fine motor skills.

• Vocabulary and Grammar
We use spoken and written words every single day to communicate ideas, thoughts, and emotions to those around us. Having a good vocabulary can help us say what we mean.  We expand children's vocabulary skill as the foundation of their English skills, making learning new vocabulary as natural and fun part of the classroom experience.  Grammar is the way in which words are put together to form proper sentences. Thus we teach children basic grammar such as the different parts of speech to construct English sentences.

• Word Play and Song
Children love music and they love having fun with language. Thus we incorporated word play and song into the programme to make learning English Language the fun way.
Chinese Literacy 
Immersion
Chinese has 5,000 years of history and come with it the complicated Chinese Language. In order to master the Chinese Language, we break it down to various simpler foundational components for children to learn such as 

• Hanyu Pinyin (汉语拼音) 
for better Pronunciation;
• Pianpang Bushou (偏旁部首) 
the Chinese Radicals;
• Bishun Bihua (笔顺笔画) 
the order of Chinese Strokes;
• Shige Erge (诗歌儿歌) 
the Ancient Poetry and Chinese Culture;
• Shizi Yuedu (识字阅读) 
to read Chinese Characters fluently.

The Chinese Language lesson uses the strategy of Singing Rhymes and Dramatization to enhance the learning experience of reading and writing new vocabularies.
Discovery 
of the World
Discovery of the World helps children widen their knowledge and acquire the essential skills and understanding to make sense of the world around them. 

 It aims at sustaining children’s natural curiosity to explore the world and lays the foundation for learning in geography, history and science. 

 As children Observe, Compare, Classify, Predict, Experiment, Record and Communicate, they develop these Process Skills that are necessary for their future learning. 
Montessori -
Numeracy
Learning Mathematical concepts in Montessori begins concretely and progresses towards the abstract. Children will get to manipulate with the concrete materials and learn concepts about Linear Counting, Number Symbol, Sequence, Place Value, Decimal System, Geometry, Fractions as well as the process of Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication, Division etc.

Working on Montessori materials bring about Character Development such as independence, self-discipline, patience, sense of responsibility and concentration as they learn to self-help in choosing what they would like to work with, take the tray and put it back after working on it.
Montessori - Practical Life
Montessori uses concrete hands-on materials to learn abstract concepts. The materials are set out properly on the shelves under different subjects such as Practical Life, Sensorial and Culture. 

Practical Life activities help children learn how to care for themselves and their environment. These activities help the child to become more independent, leading to greater self-confidence, and the ability to face new challenges. Practical Life exercises include lessons in grace and courtesy, care for self, and care for the environment. The purpose of these activities is to enhance co-ordination, concentration, independence, and indirectly prepare children for writing and reading. Activities often include cleaning, scooping, pouring, folding.
Montessori - Sensorial
Sensorial materials were designed by Doctor Maria Montessori to help children express and classify their sensory experiences. The purpose of sensorial activities is to aid in the development of the intellectual senses of the child, which develops the ability to observe and compare with precision. There are sensorial materials that focus on visual perception, tactile impressions, auditory sense, and olfactory and taste perceptions. Activities often include matching and grading materials that isolate the sense of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

Character
Building
Knowledge and skills must be underpinned by values. Values define a person's character. They shape the beliefs, attitudes and actions of a person, and therefore form the core of the framework of 21st Century Competencies by the Ministry of Education (MOE) of Singapore.

In Character Building segment, we strive to inculcate important Moral Values such as honesty, responsibility, respect for self, show empathy, non-bullying behaviours, learn how to live harmoniously in the society, the importance of resilience and perseverance in not giving up easily when facing difficult task.
Dance & Music 
Education
To enhance children exposure to arts education, we incorporate dance movement and music into early childhood education. This can help young children with development, social interaction and language growth. 

Where possible, we will also seek opportunity to attend public performances for children to handle fear and cultivating confidence when standing before an audience.
Motor Skills Development
The learning goals for Motor Skills Development focus on the need to help children develop both fine and gross motor skills which affect their physical fitness, agility and body coordination.
Improve Memory Games
Most memory games 
encourage quiet concentration. 

Playing memory games exercise the brain, making it more sharp and alert. 

The more you play, the better you get. 
IQ Problem-Solving Games
Through recent discoveries and understanding of how young children are able to learn very quickly, the MSB Brain-Development classes are geared towards integrating various learning sensitivities of little children. Empowering them with important skills to build strong solid foundation in the hope for an easier life-long learning journey as they grow up.  

We include IQ Problem-Solving activities to train children to have better concentration, increase brain reflection speed and achieve greater mind fitness.
Foreign 
Languages
As a form of introduction of Foreign Languages to young children, we give them an early exposure to various languages such as
 
French, 
German, 
Italian, 
Spanish and 
Japanese. 

This will improve their listening skills and help them learn languages better. 
PLAYtime! 
Family Bonding
As early childhood educator, we believe in play and know how play is very important to children.  Thus, advocating play as a medium where parents can also become playful with their children.

Family time together can help children feel valued and create great memories for them when they’re all grown up.

Thus, we organised activities and events for "Family Bonding with Your Child"
as a PLAYtime! opportunities for the whole family to form stronger parent-child relationships.





FUNtime! 
Outdoor Learning
Quarterly, we bring children out on a learning journey to discover the great outdoors and to facilitate holistic learning
by creating meaningful outdoor experiences.
ARTtime!
Artist In School
In collaboration with professional artist to come in regularly to conduct quality arts programmes, thus nurture positive attitudes in children towards learning in and through the arts.

EXPLORE
Children are curious and inquisitive, so we let children do what comes naturally: play.

As they play, they explore, they learn.

We also give  them opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings that develop both their critical thinking skills and 
communication skills.
EXCEL
In line with one of our core values ‘Culture of Excellence’,

we encourage children to excel by
giving their best personal effort in all that they do - 

during play, or
working on a task or 
participating in activities.
