OUR ProgramExperiment - Learn - Understand
Our purposeful curriculum for infants and toddlers care and early education is based on 14 years of local practice and inspired by latest development in the sector.
Our focus is always on what will best serve the needs of “1st Class” children and families with an eye on innovation for quality early education.
Experiment – Learn – Understand
Your child is a champion of learning. Every inch of a child is striving towards a single goal to learn, experience, understand and everything at 1st Class is designed for the sole purpose of nurturing this search.
Our spaces and programs have been designed to allow your child to acquire his first apprenticeships and thus build strong foundation for his life.
At 1st Class, we create an early multilingual learning environment: a native foreign speaker spend regular time interacting with infants and toddlers and ignite the learning of foreign languages.
Babies are born wanting to learn, like little scientists.
They explore and learn through all their senses even before they can crawl.
We encourage this learning by providing new opportunities for them to touch, taste, smell, grab and listen to the world around them in a safe and nurturing environment.
Special areas are dedicated to the babies: sleeping room and activity room to explore, crawl, and start to walk inspired by the NIDO in the Montessori Method.
Nannies will provide all cares your baby needs with the highest hygiene and security standard. We’ll follow your routine in terms of feeding and sleeping times to maximize the infants comfort. Nannies make sure your baby fully develop his/her potential experiencing at his/her own path in the activity room and with the foreign language facilitator.
1st class program covers all learnings domains for your kids to acquire solid foundation for school and lifelong learnings. Activities are organized around a main subject, specific new notions or words are repeated or emphasized throughout all activities during a pre-defined period.
Children are encouraged to participate as they can, according to their age and personal preferences.
Languages & Literacy
- The early years are critical for literacy development. From sign language, to singing and story time, to initiation to phonics your child develops important literacy skills and a love of reading.
- Listening: During story time, children are encouraged to listen as it develops attention and concentration skills.
- Speaking: Your child is also encouraged to express himself/herself during all activities and special times are dedicated to speaking.
Early experiences with math help children develop reasoning skills, inventiveness, and persistence in problem-solving. Our math program introduces classifications, measurement, patterns, and small numbers through hands-on learning, and build the basis to counting.
Physical Development / Motor Skills
Active children become active adults. We show your child fun ways to practice proper techniques for movement, balance and motor skills with plenty of time to slide, climb and run on our age-appropriate playgrounds.
Very young children have the opportunity to start learning foreign languages and develop abilities to learn new language easier in the future. We propose a multilingual and multicultural program which emphasizes regular social interaction, play, and high quality and quantity of language from the native facilitators in Khmer, and English.
Children are natural scientists. They use their senses and special technological tools to observe and investigate their world. Garden, special installation and hands-on experiences are great fields of observation and findings.
Arts & Crafts
Arts stimulate imagination and creative thinking and drawing, painting, modeling etc. are great ways to develop fine motor skills and prepare kids’ ability to write.
Social & Emotional / Behavioral & Relationship Skills
