Coding, widely known as computer programming, is not all about using the computer. In a technology-reliant era, early exposure to Coding helps young children develop essential skills for the digital future. In November 2022, Kinderland International Preschool @ Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam launched age-appropriate coding lessons for our preschoolers. Our students from nursery to kindergarten levels will learn how to manoeuvre and navigate introductory programmable gadgets.

To prepare for the launch of the Coding programme, Kinderland Singapore’s Curriculum Specialist Ms Shikin flew in to train the Kinderland Vietnam teachers. She introduced the benefits of Coding and how best to deliver the programme to our children. The teachers underwent three days of intensive theoretical and practical training on Coding. They also had first-hand experience in exploring the various gadgets and planned lessons.

Our teachers are actively learning with Coding Specialist Ms Shikin from Kinderland Singapore Curriculum headquarter.

Children can embark on more formidable coding challenges ahead with a strong foundation in Coding. Beyond delivering the training, Ms Shikin also guided the teachers in assessing children’s learning development. The assessment will monitor the children’s progressive learning from Nursery to Kindergarten.

Our Vietnamese teachers thoroughly enjoyed the interactive sessions and were recharged with new knowledge. They were ready to engage the children in December with the launch of the new Coding Programme. Regular reviews and training will be conducted for he programme, bringing new teachings and learning to the children.
