Black, slimy and super fun! The Cambridge @ Sengkang K1 children explored magnetic forces using slime! They were filled with wonder and surprise as they watched the magnetic slime come “alive”. Using magnets, they manipulated the slime in many ways like pulling tentacles from it, dragging it from side to side, and even accidentally dropping the magnet into the slime and see it being “engulfed” by the slime in seconds!

In order to contribute to our children’s long-term success, Cambridge @ Dairy Farm established close partnership between home and school fostering strong collaboration with parents to promote home-school partnerships. Parental involvement produces measurable gains in a child’s holistic development as parents play a central role in the development of their children, and parents are regarded as their children’s first teachers and family influences are lifelong. Strong parental involvement in the education and development of children helps parents to get a better grip on what schools are teaching and how they can support their children’s learning at home. We create parent-child bonding opportunities for our children and their parents through our twice a term parental-involvement activities which enabled our parents to engage, create, laugh, learn and bond with their children.
The importance of outside play in early years can’t be underestimated and the benefits of learning outside the classroom are endless. Children at Cambridge @ Dairy Farm look forward to outdoor learning as being outside, our children get to express themselves freely without any space constraints. Learning in an outdoor environment allows children to interact with the elements around us and helps them gain better understanding of the world we live in. They can experience animals in their own surroundings and learn about their habitats and life cycles. The sense of freedom playing and learning outdoors allows children to make discoveries by themselves as they can develop their own ideas and understand what they can do by themselves, and develop a ‘can do’ attitude, which will act as a solid foundation for future learning.
Our Cambridge @ Serangoon Gardens K1 and K2 children had a fun day learning at KidZania! The children were immersed in the realistic role-play stations and participated in diverse occupations in a hospital, dental clinic, bakery, police and fire station, bank, convenient store, and even a chiropractic clinic! It widen their perspectives of the different ways they can contribute to the world when they grow up and set them thinking about what they would like to be in the future.
This Father’s Day, the children at Cambridge @ Yio Chu Kang showed their appreciation by presenting a performance as well as handmade crafts to their daddies. It was a day well spent with activities such as slime and sandwich making and telematches, which were perfect for bonding
