Learn to Play & Play to Learn @ Peninsula International Pre-School
We at Peninsula International School Australia, Malaysia Campus have chosen to adopt the best of the best approach for our International Pre-School. Infusing established International pedagogies like Montessori, Waldorf & Regio Emilia into our Victorian Curriculum, we have created the “Learn to Play & Play to Learn” approach in our International Pre-school.
Playing freely stimulates the imagination, problem solving skills and creativity of children. Moreover, it helps them to further build upon their linguistic skills and will challenge their physical and emotional boundaries whenever they are at play. It is this potential which we wish to harness at Peninsula International Pre-School.

Unstructured & Structured PLAY
Play is more than just having fun; it is the key to your child’s development.
Confidence & Coordination through PLAY
Empowering your child into making choices is a critical part of learning and play improves eye, body and mind coordination. These are the building blocks needed for a proper foundation for structured learning in school in the later years.
Imagination & Creativity through PLAY
Our thematic based curriculum will lead to small projects every end of Term, illustrating the imagination and creativity of our children.
Art of Storytelling through PLAY
A critical component of our curriculum is our “Show & Tell” activity, complimented by our art of storytelling through Art & Craft, Song & Dance and through our Puppet Show sessions.
It’s so much more than just Reading
A critical component of our curriculum is our Reading module implemented in our reading clubs, book character sessions as well as our themed months. The focal point of this is the relationship and connection created with children through this activity which is why it is also a compulsory feature for our parents.
