WELCOME TO PEGASUS

Pegasus International Preschool Pte Ltd – the pre-school with a difference in Bukit Timah.

Pegasus International Preschool Singapore (PIPS) first opened its doors in

May 2013. Pegasus was set up with the vision of delivering an inquiry-based, high quality early childhood experience for children aged18 months to 6 years old in a fun and conducive environment.

 

Transformative, Child-Centred Preschool Education

Your child loves to ask “Why?” as soon as they are able to express themselves confidently. Driven by curiosity, children seek to explore the world from infancy. At no time in life is curiosity more powerful than in early childhood.

At Pegasus, our curriculum is focused on Inquiry-based learning where children start by formulating questions through interactions with their environment. At Pegasus, we begin this inquiry process by understanding the many questions children ask and allowing them to engage in intuitively exploring in their environment with their own senses.

Initiated by their interest, we engage our pre-schoolers to further explore various concepts creatively such as Language and literacy, Mathematics, Physical and Cognitive development etc. For a pre-schooler, we believe that a holistic approach has to be taken, which is why Pegasus places a strong emphasis on our children’s physical well-being, character building and their environmental consciousness.

 

Inquiry-Based Learning

Through the process of inquiry, children construct much of their understanding of the natural and human-designed worlds. Inquiry implies a “need or want to know” premise. Inquiry is not so much seeking the right answer — because often there is none — but rather seeking appropriate resolutions to questions and issues. In Pegasus, inquiry implies emphasis on the development of inquiry skills and the nurturing of inquiring attitudes or habits of mind that will enable children to continue the quest for knowledge throughout life.

Philosophy

We believe learning should be fun and exciting. We aim to motivate ad nurture children in order for them to discover the joy and fulfilment of learning. Quality Early Childhood care is of vital importance to the growth and development of children. Research on brain development has proven the importance of early years in a child’s learning and development.

At Pegasus, we take a multi-faceted approach. We understand that a child’s development and learning does not only take place in the classroom but at home too. We strongly encourage and actively involve parents to provide their children with Early Learning Experiences.

Pegasus promotes an Inquiry-based curriculum in contrast to the traditional Rote Learning techniques. An immersive, Inquiry-based learning empowers children to observe, enquire, explore and comprehend their subject matter. We aim to expose the children to the joy of learning and we believe in equipping them with skills to actively explore their interests.
