Early Learning Afternoon Programme

Our English and Chinese based afternoon early learning programme nurtures young children from as young as 12 months, helping them build their early learning skills, their emotional security and confidence and guiding them on how to build positive relationships.

The Carmel Early Learning Centre curriculum has been tailor designed and refined for close to three decades. Children as young as twelve months are under the supervision of our team of excellent early years' educators, providing every child with individual time and attention each day.

Carmel Early Learning Centre builds language and personal development through play, music, movement, creating a well-rounded programme for developing minds. Play provides important opportunities for children to experiment, explore, discover and create.

Our small class setting and high teacher-to-student ratio ensure that the cognitive, personal and emotional needs of all children are catered to.

Underlying all our learning and teaching, is a pedagogical understanding of how young learners learn best. Language development, communication through play and hands-on activities are the driving forces for shaping our future learners.

Our Learning Philosophy

At Carmel we provide a learning environment where all children feel loved, secure and safe. Children learn to have a voice while respecting each other and we focus on a whole-student approach to education. For us, each child and each child’s needs are unique.

We recognise that all children have the ability to succeed and that learners thrive when success is celebrated. Our young learners are given opportunities to engage in meaningful, play-based learning experiences through which they can discover, create, improvise and imagine.

Child Development

Our Early Learning Educators constantly focus on the development of key skills, attitudes and approaches. Our approach to teaching and learning is responsive to the strengths and interests and emerging development of each child and we work towards developing children that are social, empathetic, creative, healthy and active.

As we prepare the children for their continued educational journey, we focus on helping them become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk takers, balanced and reflective.

Our Team

Our talented and experienced team of Early Learning Educators hold recognised Early Childhood qualifications from universities and institutes of Education from both Hong Kong and overseas. Together with our wonderful teaching assistants, the team continuously enrich their practice through professional development and a genuine commitment to and passion for early years teaching.

Our teachers value the importance of learning relationships where both the adult and the child learn from one another. Our team is thoughtful and purposeful in their decision-making and action-taking when providing learning opportunities, while ensuring that all children are recognised and valued.

At Carmel creativity is central to the learning process, empowering children to become imaginative and confident learners. We listen to the children, act as facilitators in their learning experiences and support their interests to help them problem-solve and extend their learning.

Children learn to socialise and interact with one another through play and group work. Team collaboration and being kind towards each other are all fostered from this young age.
