Play-based learning in a natural environment
We focus on providing young children (aged 18 months to 4 years) with a unique opportunity to play and learn in a green outdoor environment away from the confines of a regular classroom.
Research clearly shows that being in a ‘green environment’ impacts powerfully on the learning process, enhancing creativity, a sense of safety and belonging, and laying the foundation for a positive disposition towards learning.
Active learning through structured group play activities enables children to use their natural curiosity to develop psycho-motor, language and social skills essential for future learning.
The children learn and play surrounded by a lush tropical landscape, nurturing a respect and understanding of how things grow and evolve on a daily basis. A vegetable garden in Singapore’s Garden City is the perfect way to generate children’s curiosity in how things grow; as well as ‘getting dirty’ and having fun whilst learning by doing.
Arts and crafts are a key part of Little Bunnies projects, using a wide variety of recycled goods. The children (and their parents) are encouraged to bring interesting articles in from home that can be re-used and adapted into something new and exciting. Our musical instruments are also made by the children using a variety of recycled materials. The children’s creative work is taken home regularly, providing an important communication link with parents.
At Little Bunnies we help children acquire the basic skills and confidence to work together, to share and take turns fairly, and have a sense of ease and respect for the world around them.
