Every semester of the Pre-school Programme consists of 10 weeks that lead up to a mini-presentation on the last class.
Each lesson will be conducted with the following components in mind:

  • Development of the Mind
  • Development of Creative Problem-Solving
  • Development of Speech and Basic Communication
  • Development of PLAY

Each class will have the various topics covered in varying activities such as movement and body, speech and voice, group work and working in a team. Students will learn basic theatre activities and theatre games which help them develop their listening skills and focus.

The classes are limited to only 16 kids per class (the maximum number of each class may be lesser than 16 depending on the momentum of the class. If the students are a bit more difficult to control; we will keep the number smaller)

1. Is there any trial class for the programme?
There is no trial class due to the limited number of students. You have to commit at least for one whole semester in order to join the programme. If you are not too sure whether the programme is suitable for your child. You may enroll them for our Intensive Creative Arts Programme (normally is done during the school holidays); as the programme is shorter and more intensive ( it’s a daily programme for 1 week).

2. My children refuse to participate in the class and cried throughout the class.
It’s normal for young students to cry on the first day of the programme due to new environment. Parents may accompany them in the class for only the first class.
We do not recommend for parents to stay in the class as we need the students to be independent and for them to build their trust with our facilitators.
Please do not worry if your child decided not to participate and just sit at the corner of the class; students will still be able to learn something by observing the class; and they will eventually join the class once they are ready.

3. Can I see what’s happening in the class?
You can peep through the small gap on the windows to see what is happening in the class. The windows are covered so that the students are able to concentrate.

4. Is the class is for both days? Can I change my child class from Saturday to Sunday in the middle of semester?
The class is only once per week. You may only choose either Saturday or Sunday and will have to stay with the chosen day until the end of semester.

5. Is there any replacement classes?
There are no replacement classes. Dates of the classes are as stated on the schedule.

6. What about the year end show?
There are no year end production for the preschool drama programme. However, there is a short presentation by the kids for the parents at the end of the final class. It will take about 5-15 minutes and the presentation will take place in the same studio where the class is being held.

Under the tutelage of mentors and adigurus like Pak Bob Khalil, Pak Osman, Ruslan Imam, Salvadore Guerzo and many others, Teuku is emerging as a leading light in the new generation of Malay gamelan artists. He is the winner of the “Best Gamelan Performer” in a Malay Gamelan Competition in the state of Terengganu, has directed many traditional performances in ASWARA and has also led the ASWARA Gamelan Group in a collaboration with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO).
