Shaws Preschool: Nurturing Happy, Healthy Pre-schoolers Through Play-Based Learning (and Sport)!

At Shaws Preschool, playtime goes beyond giggles and fun (although there’s plenty of that too!). We believe in the power of sports to transform our little learners into happy, healthy, and confident individuals. Our play-based learning curriculum integrates sports in a fun and engaging way, making it a perfect fit for curious, active pre-schoolers in Singapore!

The Science of Smiles: How Sports Make Our Little Ones Shine

Ever wonder why your child beams after a day full of active play? Science has the answer! During sports, their bodies release special chemicals called dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. Think of them as tiny cheerleaders, giving a natural mood boost and fueling motivation to keep playing!

  • Dopamine rewards them for trying their best and mastering new skills, like scoring a goal or throwing a ball further than ever before. It’s a happy high for their achievements!
  • Serotonin promotes a sense of calm and relaxation, like a warm hug after a long day.
  • Endorphins act like natural pain relievers, keeping them feeling good all over, even after a little tumble.

Why Sport is so Great for all Kids

These happy hormones are just one reason why sports are a cornerstone of the Shaws Preschool curriculum. Here’s how sports help our little learners develop:

  • Confidence Soars: The more they practice and improve, the prouder they become. Their self-esteem takes flight, making them more self-confident!
  • Problem-Solving Detectives: Sports are all about quick thinking on the field. They become super smart problem-solvers, figuring things out on the fly!
  • Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Playing with friends teaches invaluable teamwork skills. They learn to collaborate, share, and celebrate each other’s victories – a winning formula for life!
  • Building Resilience: Sports offer opportunities to learn from setbacks. They bounce back, try again, and develop resilience, a crucial life skill.
  • Healthy Habits for Life: Sports are a fun way to get active, promoting healthy habits that stay with them long after preschool.
  • Strong Like Superheroes: From kicking balls to sprinting across the playground, sports help them build strong muscles and a healthy body – just like their favorite superheroes!
  • Discipline: Sports teach them to follow rules and respect their coaches/ teachers and friends.
  • Leaders in the Making: Being part of a team fosters a sense of responsibility and encourages them to help others. They become natural-born leaders!
  • Smarter Than Ever: The more they move, the more their brains grow! Sports help them learn and retain information faster, boosting cognitive skills.
  • Good Sportsmanship Wins: Sports teach them the importance of sportsmanship – celebrating victories with humility and learning from losses with grace.

So, the next time you see our little ones having a blast at Shaws Preschool, remember – they’re not just playing; they’re building a foundation for a happy, healthy, and successful future!

At Shaws Preschool, we believe in the power of play-based learning to unlock their potential, and sports are a vital part of that journey!
