Nursery (Ages 2-3)

The Little GEMS Nursery offers a rich and nurturing programme for children aged two to three and provides endless ways and opportunities for your child to develop.

We ensure that your child benefits from varied and well-directed early learning opportunities through their involvement in a wide range of carefully planned educational play-based activities. We’ve created a nursery environment which incorporates the best elements of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and IB practices. Imagination, creativity, curiosity and confidence are the cornerstones of a child’s experience and progress at our school. Our individualised and child-centred approach goes far beyond just education.

Our teachers help to foster a lifelong love of learning in your child and guide them to become a successful, confident, well-rounded and caring global citizen.

Each day brings a variety of exciting learning experiences related to the following developmental areas:

  • Communication & Language (English & introduction to Mandarin) 
  • Gross & Fine Motor Development
  • Social & Emotional Development
  • Mathematics Discovery (Science)
  • The Arts (Music, Dance, Drama & Visual Art)


Through play, our Nursery programme supports your child in developing skills in the following key areas:

Communication Skills

Children benefit from opportunities to develop their early communication skills in relation to their social skills, development of play, comprehension and expressive language skills.

Thinking Skills

We encourage children to take an active part in the variety of play-based activities arranged for them and to experiment and refine their theories on what causes things to happen.

Social Skills

Our teachers support each child’s emotional well-being, ensuring that they are confident to take part in new activities and work with others, as well as develop a positive sense of themselves and respect for others.

Self-management Skills

The development of self-management skills is necessary for a child’s future independence. Children are supported in:

  • Increasing independence in eating and drinking
  • Expressing needs in changing a diaper or using the restroom
  • Handling zippers and large buttons
  • Experimenting with putting on and taking off pull-over clothing
  • Performing simple chores such as picking up and putting away toys, etc.
Research Skills

We fully support children in developing research and observation skills to encourage creativity and enable meaningful discoveries.

Our teachers will facilitate your child’s learning to deepen their exploration, help them develop understanding and encourage reflection.
