PRESCHOOL PROGRAMME

Preschool in essence prepares your child for Primary school and like many parents, you may be wondering if your child is ready for the learning challenges ahead.  Most importantly. you may be asking yourself, is my child reading okay?  Can he or she spell well enough to go into Primary 1?  We want to help your preschooler who may be struggling with early literacy.  We can help them to develop the skills and strategies enabling them to be confident achievers by the time he or she enters primary school. 

If your child is struggling with literacy then the SES Preschool programme cna help them.  At preschool it is too early to diagnose for a learning difference but we can definitely help your child to be a more confident learner and prepare for Primary 1.

Our Approach


The programme helps preschoolers acquire a good foundation in alphabet knowledge and phonograms, leading up to learning sight words essential for reading. These abilities gear them towards reading and spelling readiness. In class, your child will be taught rules, facts and generalisations about the English language, enabling them to read and spell more effectively. They will also be taught strategies to cope with letter reversals. The programme follows a prescribed scope and sequence for systematic, sequential and cumulative teaching.

Components covered in a typical lesson:

  • Alphabet Knowledge
  • Phonograms
  • Learnt Word Knowledge (e.g. said)
  • Reading
  • Spelling


Preschoolers will be advised to go for a School Age Psychological Assessment if they have not responded to appropriate instruction in the language when they turn 6. Children diagnosed with dyslexia have the option to continue with the MOE-aided DAS Literacy Programme.

Recommended for


Preschoolers in Kindergarten One and Two who are at risk of dyslexia or having difficulties with reading, spelling and/or writing.
