GWL EXPERTISE

The Golden Window of Learning (GWL) programme is based on research-backed pedagogy of the Relationships-Based Curriculum by Early Childhood Expert Dr. Marjory Ebbeck. The approach focuses on creating a strong bond between parent (or teacher) and child, which lays the foundation for learning confidence. This confidence to learn facilitates the understanding of his/her sense of self, development of sensory and motor skills, and the strong foundation in both Mandarin and English.

The GWL Mandarin programme is also under the guidance of Dr. Connie Lum EdD, Member of Lee Kuan Yew Fund Bilingualism Proposal Evaluation Committee and the Promote Chinese Language Learning Pre-School Chinese Language Education Support Group.

She is an authority in teaching Chinese, having written over 30 books and been invited to speak in symposia such as China Early Childhood Conference, The Hong Kong University Conference and the OMEP World Conference.

HEAR FROM OTHER PARENTS!

My girl is always looking forward to the 20 minutes of fun with Teacher Reginal every week. Teacher Reginal is very engaging and interactive. Besides the live Zoom classes, the GWL programme also provides interesting activities for us to engage her at home. Desiree has definitely learnt a lot from the school lessons and activities for the past 3 months. She can count 1 to 10 without a beat! Thanks to Teacher Reginal and the school for curating such an interesting programme! Lynn Khoo, mum to Desiree
Both the English and Mandarin sessions were really fun and engaging. Tessa loved the music and movement the most and it makes me very happy to see her groove with the teacher. They also provide home kits which are simple to use. I love how hassle free this is as everything in the kit is packed and delivered to us monthly. This is a great programme for us to safely engage Tessa in the comfort of home. I think she’s a little more prepared for school next year. Sheila Mansy, mum to Tessa
We’ve had the opportunity to experience both Engage at Home & LiveClass online and I felt that it was engaging and fun, providing us with ideas for Jamie to learn! The kits provided by LSH included simple instructions with safe, quality materials which we continued to engage Jamie in after the class! Zonia Raymond Tan, mum to Jamie
Atlas is growing up and learning way too fast! That is why I am always trying to keep him engaged by finding him activities to train his development of sensory & motor skills! Had the chance to experience The Golden Window of Learning (GWL). Faustina Pang, mum to Atlas
Firstly, I would like to thank you for the weekly summaries to help Elijah with his learning and the use of the learning material kit when he was away from the classes. He loves all the learning kits. The reason Elijah missed the classes was because he has turned 2 and we decided to send him to pre-school. Once again thanks for being a part of Elijah's learning experience and we wish you guys all the best with this new course. Fung Pin Ren, mum to Elijah

Interactive “show and tell” featuring our live guest - Zeus the parrot!

In this English LiveClass Online session, the children learnt about birds through an interactive “show and tell” featuring our guest - a live parrot! As our GWL specialist introduced the bird’s features such as its beak, wings and tail, children were encouraged to also identify and match the same parts on their puppet bird (part of the kits). This sensory activity not only builds children’s vocabulary, but also lets them learn about different textures through exploration!

In this Mandarin LiveClass Online session, the heartwarming story of friendship between two birds and a tree was brought to life through a fascinating shadow puppetry activity. Through the storytelling, children fostered listening skills as well as picked up new vocabulary related to the topic of the week - animals that fly! They also got to witness an exploration of shadows and light as the story unfolded on stage.
