For 5-6 year olds
Foundation II : The threshold to formal school education
At Little Red Hen Preschool, the child development and learning between 5-6 years is consolidated under the Foundation II Learning Program, which we consider the gateway to formal school education.
During this period children are now building a stronger sense of their own identity and their place in a wider world. Children are learning to recognise the importance of social rules and customs, to show understanding and tolerance of others, and to learn how to be more controlled in their own behaviour.
Learning and playing in small groups helps to foster the development of social skills. Children now become better able to plan and undertake more challenging activities with a wider range of materials for making and doing.

Foundation II at Little Red Hen
In this phase children learn effectively in shared activities with more able peers and adults. Literacy and problem solving, reasoning and numeracy skills continue to develop. Children’s developing understanding of cause and effect is encouraged by the introduction of a wider variety of equipment, media and technologies.
Just like we build strong foundations of our homes to make them last an for decades; the same approach should be followed by Little Red Hen for building a strong learning foundation for our little chicks. Early foundational learning is critical for a child’s later learning. In fact, a strong early learning foundation is the ladder to ensure a future where they can adapt and thrive.
One cannot fully discover a child’s full potential if one only emphasizes on completing the set curriculum and content. What is key is nurturing essential life skills. When children are given sufficient time and space to build strong foundations with respect to skill development, it paves the way a future where they can make decisions and continue to be critical, creative thinkers and doers.
We, at Little Red Hen, are committed to equip our students with the tools, knowledge, and confidence to be life ready. A well-rounded education helps students make the most out of their learnings and develop important life skills. We help establish the foundation needed for a lifetime of educational success. We ensure that we include hands-on exploration and play to prepare them for later learnings. We are dedicated to help young learners thrive and discover their full potential at every step in life and free play is an important part of our curriculum.

The Class Children to Teacher ratio at Little Red Hen Preschool & Early Years is never above 15:1. According to research conducted by USA’s National Bureau of Economic Research, small class size and low student teacher ratios were one of the most vital elements in early childhood education settings to future academic achievements.
Our Learning Curriculum
We have learnt that there is no absolute education approach that will work as the perfect preschool learning curriculum for all children in the early years.
We have integrated the education approaches of Montessori Education + The Play Way Methodology while following the framework of Early Years Foundation Stage ( EYFS) guidelines.
