At Sprout, we believe in the philosophy of Whole Language Approach to the teaching of Chinese language, where learning is a cognitive experience unique to each learner’s own perspective and prior knowledge.
We respect and accept the unique nature of each child, and strive to bring out the best in every child through love and care.
We seek to provide a natural, authentic and holistic learning environment, where language acquisition best takes place in.
We place emphasis on the quality of learning, that learning should not be a means to an end, but an end in itself, where the essence lies in the process of inquiry and learning, and not just results.
At Sprout, the classroom is a garden, the students are seedlings and the teacher is the gardener. Each time students enter the garden, it is the responsibility of the teacher to prepare and excite students through interesting activities, and to sow the seeds of learning. Some students will blossom early and others later. Some will require extra attention and some will need additional encouragement. Our teachers scaffold students’ learning, check and evaluate on their progress, and adjust according to their learning needs. It is only through this process that our students will be able to grow strong and tall, and develop into lifelong learners who are confident and well-versed in the Chinese language.
At Sprout, we believe reading is the foundation of language learning. Through harnessing the power of high quality stories and literature, we cultivate children’s interest and love for the Chinese language. We empower children with effective skills and strategies, so that they grow into confident speakers, independent readers, critical thinkers and skilled writers. We place emphasis on the process and quality of learning, and not just results. Most importantly, we respect and accept the unique nature of each child, and strive to bring out the best in every child through love and care, allowing them to develop at their own pace. Our classes are also tailor-made to ensure each student’s learning experience at Sprout is maximized.
