MANJARIA KINDERGARTEN

From the Desk of the Head of Kindergarten

It is my pleasure to be welcoming all Manjaria Bestari children to the new academic year 2019. This year, with the increase in the number of students, we are having another additional class for the 5-year-old. We would like to maintain a low teacher to students’ ratio so as to uphold our teaching quality and to ensure that every child receives sufficient attention from the teachers. Parents may communicate with the class teachers through the communication book provided or you may send messages to the teachers via email. It is our normal practice, for parents to formerly meet with the teachers twice in a year at the meet the parent sessions.

In 2018, we had started the Mandarin stream for the 6-year-old children. The outcome was promising and in 2019, we will continue with this initiative. The response has been overwhelming and we are having a full Mandarin stream class this year. Besides, we will be introducing the Singapore Mathematics to all the children from the 4- until 6-years old. At the same time, we will be introducing the Robotics Programme for the 5- and 6-year-old children as one of the enrichment programmes. The kindergarten children may then continue the Robotics Programme when they move on to the Primary and Secondary School. Our aim is to better equip the children so that they are able to assimilate into the Primary Education with ease. Besides, the Robotics Class as one of the enrichment programmes, we will also be having the Arts & Crafts, Lil’ Orators and Taekwondo Classes.

Thank you for entrusting us to mould your child and we believe in working hand-in-hand between the teachers and parents.

I look forward to another fruitful year ahead.

Mandarin Stream for 6 Years Old

Manjaria Kindergarten introduced a Mandarin stream for our 6 years-old children starting from January 2018. This programme is to enable the children to have a superior grasp of Mandarin. Children will be exposed to listening, speaking, reading and writing in Mandarin.

Thematic Approach and Experiential Learning

There will be two field trips in a year to expand children’s knowledge beyond the classroom through hands-on experiences. Most of all, field trips will help to make learning more tangible and memorable. Beside academic achievement, we also emphasize on having strong foundation on character building among our children.

Reading via Phonics

Reading for English is done using the phonics way approach not the whole language approach. Phonics reading will enable children to learn how to read and to spell the words. This method will allow children to blend the letter sounds to form words. While the whole language approach teaches the children to read by recognizing the words as a whole.

Arts and Craft

There will be arts and craft lessons whereby the children will be able to exercise their creative and critical thinking skills with lots of opportunity to explore during these lessons besides improving on their fine motor skills.

Social Skill Development

The children will be exposed to different stages of play and eventually working towards cooperative play. Children will be placed in different seating arrangements all the time so that they can interact with every child in the classroom.

Use of Worksheets

The curriculum includes a set of comprehensive worksheets for each individual age as well as incorporates a thematic approach to prepare children for primary school.

Reading programme

The individual reading programme is done according to the individual pace and ability. The progress of the children will be recorded and shared with parents when they come in for the parents-teachers meeting. The readers are wisely selected for the reading programmes. Reading is done in three languages, mainly in Bahasa Malaysia, English and Mandarin. Selecting the right readers for the beginners is important to boost their confidence level in their first attempt in reading.

Numeracy and Math

The 4 year old children will be exposed to early mathematics with emphasis on recognizing numbers from 1 until 20. While the 5 and 6 years old children will be exposed to addition, subtraction, time and value of money.

Physical Education and Gross Motor Skill

The physical development of the children is also important and we have the physical education on a weekly basis beside the annual sports day and telematch.

Religious Studies and Moral Responsibility

Also incorporated in the curriculum is Islamic study for our Muslim children. All other students attend moral studies to promote moral values among the children.

ELSA SUPPORT/SPECIAL NEEDS

The Education and Learning Support Academy (ELSA) was setup to cater to the special needs students. The ELSA support includes individual education plan as systematic approach in addressing individual needs.

These interventions are designed to help students with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and confidence. There are inclusive and exclusive classes offered to special needs students.

EXTENDED HOURS CARE

We provide extended hours care centre service to cater for the working parents from November 2015 onwards. Your child’s activities during this extended service hours have been specially planned, which includes, individual reading, indoor games, artwork, drama and outdoor activities. Our conducive environment serves to enhance your child(s) learning and at the same time providing sufficient free playtime for them. Through play, children are able to develop their social skills such as sharing, turn taking and communicating with their peers.

The child care service will operates from Monday through to Friday until 6.30 pm. A grace period of half an hour are given to parents to pick up their child, therefore; parents must pick their child by 7.00 pm. After which, there will be late pick up charges of RM10 for every additional half hour. The daycare will be closed on all public holidays and any other holidays laid down by Sekolah Sri Bestari.

We will provide lunch and tea break for the children. We also bathe the children and he or she will have one and a half hour nap. Your child may change into his/her non-uniform clothing during daycare hours. Children will not be force to take a nap, however they must stay quiet and respect other children who wish to rest. You are allowed to bring small pillow and blanket for nap. Please clearly labelled each item.

We truly believe that the needs of your child are important under our care. We hope that we will be able to work together for the best interest of your child. Any helpful suggestions about dealing with your child are welcomed. Please advise us in advance if somebody else (beside parents) are coming to pick your child.
