The Town4kids curriculum is a modern curriculum using the Blended Learning Approach. Students engage in an integrated learning environment that includes interactive multimedia activities, combined with traditional worksheet exercises, and a mobile student app that enables students to extend learning from school to home.
The curriculum is fully supported by an interactive multimedia courseware that contains hundreds of songs, interactive lessons and activities spanning across various topics and subjects. The courseware can be installed in a multimedia lab, or in a classroom with interactive whiteboard or interactive projector. The activities are designed to motivate children to learn through fun and games.
Lessons are also supported by worksheets that teachers can download and print. The worksheets contain structured exercises that reinforce the learning objectives in each lesson, and work in conjunction with the multimedia courseware. Some of the student works (e.g. art projects) can be put up in class in the form of a learning wall, or learning corners, to create a stimulating learning environment for students.
A dedicated Student App (for iOS and Android devices) designed to support home learning is provided free to students. The Student App, together with the classroom curriculum, creates an integrated school-home learning environment. The app incorporates built-in features that support shared reading with parents and learn-to-speak function using advanced speech recognition engine for self-learning.
Designed as a complete program that supports early childhood education, the Town4kids Kindergarten curriculum encompasses both academic learning, as well as all-round development of preschool children. The highlights of the curriculum include:
Character and social emotional development

STEAM Education Approach
STEAM is an educational approach that infuses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Research has shown a positive relationship between early STEAM experiences and future success in school.
Science, Technology and Engineering have changed the way we live and opened up new possibilities for the future. Math is a central component in these subjects. Arts play an important role in cultivating creativity, creative expression, and communication abilities. Town4kids’ curriculum is designed with an emphasis in these areas to equip children with essential skills for the future.
The program introduces children to a wide variety of theme-based topics that range from learning about our body and our surroundings to exploring the world of animals and outerspace. Children acquire reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills through these topics and language use activities.
