Here in Bumble bee we believe in developing our children as all rounders. We have partnered with enrichment programme companies such as Learning Cottage Pte Ltd( Singapore) and Comat Jesi Pte Ltd to further meet our goals.
Learning Cottage Pte Ltd (Singapore)
Learning Cottage Pte Ltd (Singapore) is an Education Consulting firm which specializes in enrichment programmes for children between the ages of 2 to 16 years. It was founded in 1997 and they are the leading provider of English Speech and Drama programme in Singapore.
Learning Cottage Pte Ltd (Singapore) is professionally designed and built to accommodate to different learning styles of every unique child. Their programmes are designed to enhance children's creativity through reading, writing, music and movements and physical activities. The planning of each session is practical and fun-filled as it exposes the children to a wide range of quality creative activities.
They believe that every student is unique and hence they have designed an integrated teaching approach – 5 Sense System that consists of dynamic programme curriculum developed according to the students’ needs and interactive delivery of activities that make lessons more fun and engaging. These play activities allow our Bumble Bee children to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially.
Their lessons provide a wide range of learning opportunities for our Bumble Bee children and encourage them to be active participants using all their 5 senses such as the sense of sight (Eyes), the sense of hearing (Ears), the sense of touch (Hands & Body), the sense of taste (Tongue) and the sense of smell (Nose) to explore and learn.
5 Sense System approach brings the whole education alive into the classroom. It allows our children to become more creative as they explore learning in the activities planned for them. Our children are given the opportunity to explore their own interests and strengths and to develop their own distinct individual personalities.
