Nursery (Ages 2-3)

Offering a caring, happy, engaging, play-based experience

The GEMS World Academy (Singapore) Nursery Programme offers a caring, happy, engaging play-based experience that will provide your child with opportunities to develop their thinking skills, social skills, communication skills and motor skills.

Having a place and space to thrive is fundamental to the GEMS (Singapore) Nursery Programme. We view the learning environment as a key element to enable exploration, creativity and self-expression.

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, we recognise that children develop at their own pace and learn through sensory, movement and communication experiences.

At GEMS (Singapore) Nursery, we provide endless ways and opportunities for your child to develop. We support their attempts to become more independent in their self-management skills such as dressing and feeding.

Thinking Skills Development

Your child will have the opportunity to engage in experiences where they can acquire and apply new understandings through puzzles, games and problem-solving activities.

Social Skills Development

Your child will be involved in experiences where they will be encouraged to interact with others. They will be emboldened to share and cooperate.

Communication Skills Development

Your child will be involved in experiences where they will listen to and follow simple instructions. They will have the opportunity to listen to stories, to adults and to other children. Your child will be supported in their attempts to communicate both verbally and non verbally.

Motor Skills Development

At GEMS (Singapore) Nursery children will be developing their gross motor skills and spatial awareness through games, physical education, dance and drama activities. Your child will also begin to develop fine motor skills through art activities involving mark making, painting etc. They will take part in sensory experiences involving sand, water, playdough, etc. This hands-on child-centred approach to teaching and learning helps students explore the world around them as well as aid their cognitive development.
