Children today learn at a faster and more intense pace than previous generations ever did. The education that they receive should be dynamic enough to quickly respond to this. The Little Archers Learning Center recognizes this reality and addresses it by having flexible teaching styles. We incorporate multimedia and multi-sensory experiences in the learning process, involving our students in countless activities and giving limitless opportunities to express themselves. As renowned psychologist Jean Piaget proved, children learn best when they have fun while they learn.
We remove the unnecessary stress from the learning process by being responsive to the children’s needs-we give them more only when they are ready for more.
We pride ourselves in being able to provide developmentally-appropriate, world-class education anchored on our faculty, our facilities, and our curriculum. The synergy of these three elements gives your child the LALC ADVANTAGE.

Our Safe and Secure Facilities
We make sure that our pupils have a fun and safe place to play and learn in! Our schools are always sanitized twice a day – once after the morning classes and another after the afternoon classes. All our facilities are also child-sized and child-friendly. Sharp edges are and hard play surfaces are covered with rubber mats to make sure that your children are able to run, jump and spin around without any worries! Aside from that, all our facilities are covered by 24/7 CCTV, and RFID cards are now standard for all our pupils.
Our Pioneering Curriculum
Towards this end, we have identified that there are five Expected Pupil Attributes that we want to have our pupils demonstrate. These five attributes are:
- Competence – We want our pupils to be able to accomplish benchmarked abilities determined by the Department of Education and by leading early childhood education practitioners.
- Confidence – We want our pupils to be able to effectively and appropriately communicate their needs and requirements. This allows them to become young people who are imbued with the knowledge that they are valuable and precious.
- Commitment – We want our pupils to be committed to learning. We know that learning does not begin and end in the classroom. The world outside of their classrooms offer more knowledge and insight, and we have to harness their innate curiosities in order for them to maximize their education.
- Concern – We want our pupils to be able to relate to one another as equals. An oft-told maxim goes that values cannot be taught, it can only be caught. In order for our pupils to be concerned for one another, we have to be concerned for them as well.
- Compassion – We want our pupils to know how important it is to be kind to one another. The development of their knowledge of intersubjectivity allows them to become positive forces for good and development in our society.
These five Expected Pupil Attributes are informed by a set of competencies and skills that we are teaching through the 8 Multiple Intelligences proposed by Howard Gardner. The 8 Multiple Intelligence Domains allow our learners to experience learning wholistically and gives them more opportunities to harness the best mode of learning for them.
At the end of each learning period, we give our parents a detailed portfolio of their child’s performance. We do not give numerical grades but we assess how well the child is able to accomplish skills and competencies appropriate for their age.
