OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Curiosity Kids was started by parents of two curious children who would constantly ask them questions such as ‘How do plants grow? Why do we see the moon only at night?’ etc. To encourage this habit of exploring their world, their mum started to plan simple experiments for them to understand concepts of science that come into play in our daily lives.
Curiosity offers practical science experiment classes to foster the habit of observing and exploring! Our ideology is to encourage children to connect with science and learn what role science plays in our daily lives. This connection to science with our daily life activities (whether it’s brushing our teeth, or riding on the school bus) makes learning exciting and enjoyable for young minds.
Curiosity Kids prides itself on hiring experienced and engaging teachers. All our instructors have certified backgrounds in education and childhood learning, and are passionate about helping children maximise their full potential.
