Learning through The Arts
In Nobleland, we believe that Arts Integrated Curriculum (Visual Arts, Dance Education, English Literature and Drama, Chinese Theatre, Kindermusik and Foundational Keyboard and Music Education) and learning through the Arts helps to develop children better, allowing enhanced brain development and creativity, as well as increased self-esteem. The emphasis on an Arts Integrated education is supported by awards and recognition such as the Early Childhood Innovation Award 2012 by ECDA for integrating Arts into the Learning of Literacy, Numeracy and Learning of Chinese.
The Importance of Arts Education
Did you know that right brain is associated with creativity, intuition and emotional perception? These qualities are often neglected in the pursuit of academic excellence in Singapore. To nurture creativity and a zest for life in your child, it is essential to provide your child with a range of innovative experiences. Through our Arts Education programmes, children can express themselves and comprehend concepts better, become more creative and innovative in problem solving, therefore increasing self-esteem and performance.

Collaborations with Parents
A two way collaboration between parents and the school enables parents to be actively involved in their child’s growth and development, as well as to gain a better understanding of their child.
Did you know?
Children respond positively to parental involvement. They gain the understanding that they are valued, and that school is important.This motivates them to perform better in school, hence increasing their successes and achievements.
By contributing and participating in school projects and excursions, parents are able to contribute their expertise and skills to increase the children’s learning. We value your cooperation with the school and have conducted many activities to facilitate parent-school efforts.
Collaborations with the Community
Collaborations with the community enables the children to gain awareness of knowledge of community and social issues. Working with professionals from other fields also enables resources to be shared and a curriculum enriched by their skills and knowledge. Children practice their teamwork and social skills when interacting with adults.
- ECDA Awards for Excellence in Early Childhood Development, Early Childhood Innovation Award 2013 “Character Building and Making Connection in Learning in Collaboration with Community and Parents”
A Chinese picture book “Swimmy” (Chinese Hui Ben) was shared to allow preschool children to recollect, interpret, and reflect their feelings on ‘bravery’, ‘teamwork’ and ‘caring for minority’. The yearlong project was useful in instilling character values that students comprehend better through practical project and hands-on activities. The project also collaborates with parents by involving them in their children’s learning, thus motivating and strengthening bonds among parents, child and the school. At the end of the project, our children created a mural painting in small groups. This culminated in a year end concert which brought the picture book to live. Parents were invited to brainstorm an alternative storyline that provides opportunities for the integration of literacy, arts and character education.Nobleland is proud to be invited by MOE to showcase this Innovative project in MOE ExCEL Fest 2014.

In Singapore’s present education system even in the preschool years, there has been too much emphasis on end products and academic and not the process. Parents need to be enlightened about the importance of the active learning process to children’s learning and development, the ability of an Arts integrated curriculum to help children make connection across different discipline, the importance of learning by understanding (the concepts) instead of route learning.
The project to integrate Arts into the school curriculum has helped to:
- Develop a vibrant arts culture in the school, support and advocate arts education as a whole school approach.
- Provide a more holistic approach to our teaching curriculum, develop and nurture better rounded children who are confident and good thinkers.
- Inculcate and nurture in our children, culture and appreciation of the arts as well as enhance their creative thinking process through interactive learning and engaging their minds.
