About Us

Our Learning Approach

  • Programmes offered at Kids Land are based on:
  • Te- Wharriki ( NZ Early Childhood Curriculum) which weaves through the four principles of Empowerment, Holistic Development, Family and Community and Relationship, together with the five strands of Well-being, Belonging, Contribution, Communication and Exploration. Parental involvement and the individuality of children are highly emphasized.
  • High/Scope encourages children to be active in their learning through supportive adult interactions. Teachers facilitate work on problem resolution with children when conflict arises. Individual, small and big group learning experiences are supported in the learning program. Children are encouraged to "Plan-Do-Review" and to learn interactively.
  • Maria Montessori believes that all children want to learn. They want to work independently and they learn best through their five senses. Montessori materials are aesthetically beautiful and sturdy. They are designed with self corrective measure and children are encouraged to work on it with determined end. The curriculum consisting of three broad phases of practical life, sensory education and language activity.
  • Reggio Emillia's children have "HUNDRED LANGUAGES". These concepts of accept children's multiply forms and increasing levels of adaptation and competence. WE respect and give support to children's own timing and rhythms of growth and development. Reggio also believes that Learning Environment is children's third teacher.
  • Whole Child Concept: We strive towards the goal of creating an environment conducive to the development of the whole child.1.e.the development of cognitive, social, emotional, language and physical domains.
  • Mandarin option: Special Chinese speaking and learning are available daily.

Celia Toan (Arianna's Mum)
Kids Land has helped my daughter Arianna in important areas such as building her confidence, preparing her for primary school as well as improving her social skills. Arianna by nature is quite shy. Now, she has the boldness and confidence to stand in front of her class to do news time right from day one in primary school. Further, she represented her class in the school's mastermind quiz finals and is thriving in reading, maths and writing. She has easily made many new friends. The training and exposure she received at Kids Land had indeed made a difference.

Kids Land stands out from other day care centres because of its very competitive fees, caring teachers, focus on learning and great facilities. The incorporation of Montessori teaching, Christian values and Mandarin exposure were what we were looking for in an ideal centre, and Kids Land has the combination of all three. Thumbs up to Christina and the team at Kids Land.
