As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they feel ready to take on the world. Our early foundations Preschool Programme enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and develop a love of lifelong learning.
Through independent exploration, structured activities and hands-on learning, children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in areas such as early literacy, mathematics, science and social interaction.
Daily activities at Villa Bloom are designed to help children learn to make decisions on their own and in the classroom. We prepare children for the next stage of education, while giving them a place to feel comfortable and safe to explore their interests.

Your child’s early education at Villa Bloom
Discover how our six focus areas provide your child with endless opportunities to learn and grow.
1. Communicating with others
Villa Bloom guides your child in developing communication skills. We use a language-rich environment to encourage the development of children’s early literacy skills. We do his through various activities, including the daily reading aloud of high-quality children’s literature to promote a love of reading, as well as journal experiences that give your child the opportunity to practise writing letters and words. We offer multiple opportunities to identify and use letters and words to expand vocabulary and develop the ability to communicate.
2. Building brainpower
Villa Bloom helps your child gain higher-level thinking skills. We encourage children to explore the physical properties of materials, use daily calendar activities to teach event sequences, patterns and routines and support the learning of cognitive skills, such as counting, making predictions, testing and drawing conclusions.

Villa Bloom coaches your child in developing strong relationships. We model social concepts such as ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, facilitate daily classroom conversations and community-building discussions, explore similarities and differences between children and encourage cooperation with others.

Villa Bloom helps your child refine motor skills. We use lacing cards, stencils and writing activities to enhance fine motor skills and we strengthen coordination and gross motor skills through running, jumping and throwing activities. We also offer healthy food choices for snacks and meals and encourage learning about the ways our bodies respond to exercise and nutrition.
