我們的課程理念 ─ 「學玩」
Our rationale- learnXplay
What is “LearnXplay”?
We promote “learnXplay” culture which combines the concept of learning and playing together.
What do children aged 0-6 learn?
Children aged 0-6 are experiencing the golden period of physical and psychological development. During this period, children have their intelligence, language, social skills and emotions, bodily function and self-care ability quickly developed.
The development of bodily function is the major growth of children of preschool age (before 3 years old) as they have a fragile body. They need to acquire the skills of walking and running, the ability to use objects and carry out early stage of language communication.
After the preschool age (3-6 years old), they have achieved a certain level of physical and psychological development. They start to have new needs and their learning environment have changed from family to kindergarten. Thus, they need to learn more skills about living independently (e.g. eat on their own, go to toilet and tidy up stuff, etc.). Simultaneously, they will start engaging in social activities, these includes establishing social skills and emotion management.
When children promote from kindergarten to primary school, they switch from a casual learning environment to a more regular one, which brings great challenges to them. They need to learn to be independent, disciplined, more concentrated, have their literacy increased and acquire subject-based knowledge etc.
To help children adapt to the changes and to handle challenges ahead, it is important for us to provide holistic development and social skills to children during the age 0-6 years old, so that they could grow healthily and delightfully.
Why play-centred learning approach?
著名的遊戲治療大師Dr. Garry L Landreth說過"Birds fly, fish swim and children play."。孩子的世界就是玩的世界，對孩子來說S，玩樂就如每天吃飯、洗澡、睡覺一樣，是孩子成長的「必需品」。
A renowned play therapist Dr. Garry L Landreth ever said, “Birds fly, fish swim and children play." The world of children fills with games. Playing is as important as eating, bathing and sleeping; it’s their necessity during their growth.
All children love playing. They will have self-discovery as they play, they also learn to get along with others, and explore everything around them.
During games, positive emotion will be generated that stimulates children’s interest in learning. Having a stronger motivation in learning, their ability in absorbing and understanding also grows stronger, which helps children acquire knowledge and maximize the function of learning. Hence, we believe playing is the best approach that motivates them to learn.
Combines “Learn” and “Play” (learnXplay)

We promote “learnXplay”, i.e. combining learning and playing. We take games as the medium for learning. We turn the knowledge of different fields and the skills of our daily living into games. Children will adsorb the knowledge and skills by literally “playing”. The more they play, the more they could learn.
