Specially designed for the preschool years, Stamford American Early Learning Village (ELV) helps each child succeed with a personalised approach offered in a caring, inclusive and supportive academic environment that is safe for experiential learning.
Led by the USA Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework, the ELV’s curriculum outlines the skills, behaviours and milestones to foster in young learners. Though the programme is led by teachers, Stamford American lets children initiate their experiences, and ensures that their creativity, social competence, thinking skills and language development are enhanced.
With a student body of more than 70 nationalities, the school’s international culture is supported by its World Language Programme, where students are given the chance to participate in an extensive range of local and global cultural events from Chinese New Year to an International Fiesta.
As part of its holistic Early Years programme, Stamford American recognises the importance of academics, but places equal emphasis on your child’s physical, intellectual and social skills. Programmes include: Specialist Languages in English or Mandarin, “SMART Steps” Specialist Physical Education for children 18 months and up as well as Specialist Suzuki violin from age 3 and cello from Kindergarten 2 – and more!
Having a conducive environment for your child to learn in is crucial. And, at the ELV, each classroom is abundant with natural light, stocked with all-timber furnishings and has thoughtfully designed sensory resources to stimulate your child’s imagination and kindle his or her curiosity. Bonus: Each classroom has a discovery space – tailored to the different grade levels, where your child can enjoy, say, learning about science with nature.
Babies and infants have differing needs, routines and preferencess – and ELV aims to customise each experience through its Individual Care Programmes. Located in the cosy Infant Care Pod, this programme caters to little ones aged 2 to 18 months, and makes sure children have a similar routine at school as they do at home to make the daily transition easy on your family.
