At Humpty Dumpty and REWA Little Einsteins, we created a hybrid play-based programme that could be delivered remotely as well as in-person.

Our new approach is inspired by our love for children’s books; our goal to inspire a love for literacy from the early years: The REWA Story Curriculum. This programme reflects evidence-based research for engagement, deeper learning and developing executive functioning skills – the most critical component to school readiness & lifelong success -cultivated during the formative early years of a child’s life.

Our Story Curriculum engages children with inquiry-based themes that young children are typically interested in. Still working within our Rainbow Play framework (developed by our NGO Partner Learn To Play), our daily lesson plans are now built around a particular story.

This nurturing pedagogical approach provides opportunities for our little learners to develop empathy and independence despite the distance. Weekly activities include art, music and movement, literacy extension activities, games, story-yoga, dramatic play, sensory play, cookery, scientific exploration, cultural awareness, and outdoor fun.
