First Steps is an early childhood English course for pre-primary children aged 3 – 6 years old.
It is designed to develop your child’s English skills and self-potentials through hands-on and fun activities. As children create art projects and participate in games, songs and chants, they practice English in a natural, fun way.
Our teaching methods maintain children’s attention by keeping them actively involved in different activities that they can relate to. This way, actual learning is done sub-consciously in response to their early cognitive capacity. With dynamic songs, chants, books and video programs, First Steps stimulates children to learn and helps them build confidence in communicating in English.
Our classrooms' setting and atmosphere is prepared to create a loving, nurturing and active learning environment to support the development of children’s emotional and intellectual capabilities. We provide activities that grow their self-confidence, self-esteem, communication, social skills, critical thinking and creativity.
