Let’s hear from Ms Tan:
1. What is your role at Kinderland?
I engage with children in Chinese throughout the day, making sure that the language is interesting for the children. Because of my experience, I have taken on the task of guiding the curriculum, while managing a team of eight!
2. How does Kinderland integrate Chinese into the curriculum?
We use nursery rhymes, interactive games, songs, and dance to teach. Children can be afraid of learning Chinese because the characters look complicated. So, these methods make the language easier to approach.
At Kinderland, we integrate the language throughout the day by having both English and Chinese teachers guiding the children always. Learning happens more naturally through such interaction.
