Why Tadika Xaris
The blended learning curriculum is designed by incorporating the best learning methods from various countries. Our specially-designed & yearly-updated curriculum is aligned with the curriculum by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Our curriculum prepares the 3 & 4 year olds to read, write, speak and listen, and prepares the 5 & 6 year olds to be ready for International and Local Primary Schools.
Tailor-Made Learning Workbooks
Every child is unique and has his/her own learning pace and abilities. With this in mind, Tadika Xaris designs and develops its own learning workbooks that are tailor-made to meet individual child’s needs and progress. The 3 languages (English, Bahasa Malaysia & Chinese) and Mathematics workbooks are reviewed yearly and will be amended anytime to suit children’s progress and development.
Regular quality and up-to-date trainings are provided for all our teachers. Teachers are sent to attend international Early Childhood Education conferences, school visits and study tours to various parts of the world such as Singapore, Netherlands, Iceland, Belgium, Japan, Korea & the United Kingdom.
We have one of the best global blended programmes!
In the course of time and to keep up with the global trend, Tadika Xaris adopts a blended approach from visits to Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Japan, China & Singapore.
More methods are incorporated into its programme to discover and enhance each child’s fullest potential by building self-confidence, self-motivation & independence within a well-prepared environment with activities including unstructured and self-directed play.
Our curriculum allows children to grow at their own pace, thus retaining their individuality as they develop each unique personality. We advocate the belief that education must prepare children for schools, as well as for life!
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr Montessori’s method has been time-tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world. It is the view of a child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child – physical, social, emotional and cognitive. Tadika Xaris adopts the Montessori philosophy and creates the environment for children to learn by making discoveries with materials provided, besides cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love for learning.
Play-based learning is essentially learning while at play. Play helps children learn about themselves and make sense and understand the world around them. Play-based learning supports the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of children. Tadika Xaris incorporates Dramatic Play, Constructive Play, Water Play, Sand Play & Critical Thinking Games into its curriculum for children to play on their own as well as with their peers.
STEAM is an integrated approach to learning using Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts & Mathematics as access points for guiding children.
