Why "YGK Science Club"?
Science＋Inquiry-based Learning＋English Immersion ＝ YGK Science Club
What we value:
・Having fun ・Sense of Wonder
"YGK Science Club" is an English immersion class for 3-6-year-olds that applies active and inquiry-based learning.
Children develop creativity, thinking and problem-solving skills. They are given different materials and tools to create something out of their own thinking. In the process, they encounter challenges on how materials work and it gives them opportunity to think of how to solve them.
Through our fun science explorations, young children have the chance to exercise important science skills such as predicting, observing, comparing, measuring, communicating and reasoning.
The children get to learn English language through immersion. After several weeks of exploration with materials that they are interested in and caring teachers who converse with them meaningfully, the children start using English words naturally to express their thoughts and needs. They are acquiring the language by experience and observation.
