Students have had a buzzing first year at Kinder Labz in Ipoh as the kindergarten celebrates its first anniversary.
The new kindergarten takes on the challenge to give the students more hands-on learning experience. The youngsters, aged two to six years, regularly take part in festivals and events, from field trips to cultural celebrations.
The international curriculum is rich in art, music and drama. A highlight of the year for families was the first concert and graduation ceremony at Wisma Chin Woo. More than a hundred students brought the audience to the different lands in Enid Blyton’s classic children’s novel, ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’, while adding a few local and modern touches to it through songs like the local classic ‘Chan Mali Chan’ and Justin Timberlake’s, ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’.
The inaugural graduating six-year-olds gathered in their robes and mortar boards as they received their certificates, becoming the first class of students to graduate from Kinder Labz.
Parents, Azmin and Aisyah said, “It’s a wonderful feeling watching small kids performing and thanks to all the teachers and school staff for extracting the best of their potential.”
According to Evelyn Chen, Director of Education at Bonanza Educare, “Incorporating dancing, acting, and also music-making into a child’s learning journey today does more than just giving them the confidence to be on stage but also fuels them to succeed in a world that demands for more creativity in solving its everyday problems”.
Staff benefit from in-house training and are expected to meet very high standards. The end of year parent survey highlights how parents are kept well-informed about children’s development, through weekly newsletters, social media and parent meetings.
Kinder Labz Head of Academics, Mrs Puvanes said, “Children thrive in this wonderful, vibrant and fully inclusive kindergarten. The staff know all the children really well and we are all passionate about providing families and children with the very best start.
“Children are happy and children are learning; our core value of ‘care’ is truly at the centre of everything we do at Kinder Labz.”
Apart from providing early childhood education and care to children aged two to six years old, the kindergarten also provides a before and after school care service for children between the age of
