Integrated Programme

At pre-school level, the Integrated Programme is conducted in English and led by qualified local teachers.

From Primary level upwards, the Integrated Programme is designed specifically to meet the needs of Vietnamese students from Year 1 to Year 9. It is delivered through an education collaboration between our partner school, Children World Primary and Junior High School, and Singapore International School.

Through this collaboration, students are provided with an opportunity to study not only the mandatory Vietnamese MOET curriculum but also key learning areas of the international curriculum.

Our programmes include a STEM focus with elements of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics explored through a problem-based and applied learning approach from kindergarten to high school.

An Outward Bound course is also built into our programmes for students from Year 4 to Year 12. The Outward Bound course is designed to build self-confidence and strengthen leadership skills such as teamwork, perseverance and effective communication.

    Pre-school KinderWorld provides Pre-school education for children from 18 months to below 6 years.

    Integrated Classes are Led by qualified Vietnamese teachers and conducted in English.

    Our Kindergarten program is designed to help each child reach their full potential in an environment that is challenging, secure and nurturing. This is an exciting entry into your child’s formal education and it is our hope that it will be a very positive beginning!

    We believe that young children learn through active, purposeful interactions with a wide variety of learning materials and activities which develop the growth of the whole child. Because young children are concrete learners, they need to be able to learn by using all their senses and by trying things out on their own.
