We stand out from others because we approach things differently. We are aware that childhood learning takes place almost everywhere and use that to our advantage. Parents are encouraged to provide their kids with holistic Early Learning Experiences so that they can learn a lot and simultaneously have a memorable childhood. Preschool education in Singapore doesn’t get better than this. We don’t favour traditional Rote Learning methods and promote an Inquiry-based preschool curriculum. Singapore can boast of few preschools that are as progressive as us in their approach!
This healthy and open approach to learning ensures that children don’t shy away from observing, exploring, asking questions and noticing as well as understanding the world around them. The joys of learning are manifold and we try to expose young minds to this phenomenon.
Due to the fact that Pegasus follows an Inquiry-based curriculum, hands-on projects and class activities are an integral part of day-to-day activities. Our roomy classrooms and extensive outdoor play areas provide kids the independence to learn freely and have fun in a stimulating atmosphere. The safety-oriented and conducive qualities will bring out their creativity!
The Learning Cycle of Pegasus reflects the process of inquiry and occurs in several sequential phases. Our learning cycle moves children through investigations that creates awareness, by enabling the environment, and explore materials, then constructing a concept that they need to acquire and finally apply or extend the concept to situations. Our learning cycle is a sequential process for both learning and instruction. It places focus on a series of steps that encourages a more thorough understanding and a deeper application of content. It also pushes students towards in depth inquiry and discovery in their learning. The learning cycle gives teachers a process for instruction while giving students a formula for learning.
While several variations have been developed over the years across many preschools, the idea of a learning cycle was first introduced based on ideas Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget had in regards to how children learn. Piaget's goal was to match content mastery with a student's cognitive development process. His model, known formally as the learning cycle, consists of three basic steps: exploration, concept development (sometimes called invention), and concept application.
In Pegasus we believe that experiential learning brings together observation, creativity and active interactions in early years education. Our Learning Cycle was derived by the inspiration of an American Educational Theorist, David Kolb, who believes that learning happens through the transformation of experiences.
We offer courses that deliver knowledge and skills in subjects such as Language and Literacy, Mathematical Concepts, Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Music & Movement, Outdoor Explorations, Creative Art, Science Exposure, Character Building & Mandarin.
