What is the curriculum?
We elevate the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), by integrating iPads and Byte-ed coding lessons.

Add to that weekly swimming sessions for Reception class, and specialist PE lessons for all. Lessons are taught in English, along with fun Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia classes.
In our diverse community, every festival is a learning experience and a celebration rolled into one. We cherish diversity and we're committed to tapping into individual interests; recognising the unique learning journey each child is on.

What does the school do to help children develop their English?
The school offers a number of differentiated programmes to support children develop their English. From Year 2, we run an English Language Centre (ELC) where we provide intensive English lessons to students with little or no English. There are additional costs for enrolling in this centre. In addition, the school has a specialist we also provide Assistant Teachers to support our younger students immersed in the the lessons.
Do students learn Mandarin and Bahasa Melayu?
Our curriculum is delivered in English and all students learn Mandarin and Bahasa Melayu in a fun and engaging way.
When they reach Primary school, they have the option to learn Mandarin every day. In Secondary students can also opt to take the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) - an international standardised examination that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency, alongside IGCSE Chinese first language and second language pathways.
We understand the heart of languages for our multi-lingual environment.
How does the school determine what year group my child will be placed in?
Early Years students must have turned 3 by the 1st of September, and so on as they progress up the school.
How long does the admissions process take?
Generally, the full admissions process takes around 1 to 2 weeks from the initial application until the confirmation of a place, during which your child will be required to participate in a one-hour trial session. Your child is required to be potty-trained.
