Skool4Kidz Preschool is in the forefront of digital empowerment for preschoolers to provide little ones in a rich learning environment. As the first in Singapore to espouse digital education for little ones, our childcare programme incorporates robotic toys since 2014.
Partnering Singapore Government to expand 21C Digital Citizenry.
We partner Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) in their PlayMaker Programme. This programme empowers the young (and old) to learn simple programming to prepare Singapore towards 21st century digital citizenry. To enhance the learning, we incorporate basic coding with Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) into our programmes. As early digital adopters, we support IMDA in various public education initiatives. These bring awareness that coding is more than extended screen time on electronic devices.
Skool4Kidz is the first to host Singapore’s largest Coding Meet for preschoolers at the globally-acclaimed Hour of Code in 2017. The event was in partnership with Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) and IMDA. It was officiated by (then) Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for the Ministry of National Development, Mr Desmond Lee. We continue to host the yearly Hour of Code in support of the Infocomm Media 2025 masterplan since. Our goal is to gear children towards technology empowerment while developing a Can-Do spirit in digital innovation.
Skool4Kidz children use tech toys to perform coding and solve problems while internalising sequential thinking and the merits of creativity. Coding with the use of robotic toys is a regular feature in our children’s learning in all Skool4Kidz preschools.
Celebrating Global Wins in Coding.
We are humbled to win second place in the Global MatataWorld Robotics Competition (MWRC) in 2020.
The preschooler team, Skool4Kidz Space Explorers, won the “Matatalab Creative Star Year Award” as well in the global robotics event. This event was designed to improve children’s all-round skills through fun and challenging coding activities.
Singapore continues to press ahead to prepare the population to become future-ready in an increasingly digitalised world. We are honoured as digital advocates in support of intelligent learning opportunities for little ones in Singapore.
