Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is built upon thoughtfully chosen English and Mandarin book titles, where children not only learn the language components but also expand their learning across various subjects by delving into the content of these books. The curriculum covers fundamental to advanced concepts through specially designed lessons and activities, covering Language (English and Mandarin), Numeracy (Mathematics), Science (Environment), Fine and Gross Motor Skills, Aesthetic and creativity, Music and movement, and Social and Emotional development domains. Moral and Health education is seamlessly integrated into the curriculum throughout the child's preschool years, with the aim of nurturing your child.


At Appleland Playhouse, we advocate for hands-on activities to stimulate your child's self-discovery, self-learning, and problem-solving skills. Our bilingual program plays a crucial role in establishing a robust foundation in both English and Mandarin, ensuring your child is well-prepared for a smooth transition to primary school.

Infant Care
