At Josiah, the Pre-Primary K2 journey is a new and fresh experience for our children to prepare them for Primary 1! Their learning journey emphasise on acquiring knowledge and the 21st century skills competencies such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking skills and creative skills, metacognition and global citizenship. Subject matter such as language & literacy, mathematics, science, MAP and outdoor play will all be integrated in our children’s daily activities.


Core Subjects

Language and literacy proficiency is emphasised to hone communication reading and writing skills through comprehension, cloze passages, Han Yu Ping Yi (for Chinese language), journal writing, creative writing, show-n-tell, picture composition and oral skills.

Social and Experiential Learning

Using a multimodal approach,knowledge and skills set for mathematics, science, musical arts and citizenship are conducted through digital media, Montessori apparatus, games, activity sheets and collaborative learning.

The Pre-Primary learning journey will end off with a year-end project based on a theme chosen by themselves.


Project Work

Our children are offered opportunities to engage their creativity and ideas through the Reggio inspired Project Work. Children are encouraged to investigate project themes in depth across disciplines. The Reggio inspired Project Work helps our children develop connections between primary activities, like playing, exploring, and expressing oneself. Project Work encourages our children to have a thirst for knowledge and helps our children to adopt an active approach towards learning. Children ponder meaningful questions about the real world and generate new ideas to answer them.

Social Studies

By Pre-Primary, our children would have developed a sense of civic consciousness. Here at Josiah, our Social Studies curriculum embodies a child’s need for order in the environment and towards social interaction with the larger community in the society. The child has a need to understand social structures in order to be more at ease in his/her environment.
