“I returned to Singapore after living, studying and working as an educator overseas in the United States and the Netherlands for about 20 years. I started at XCL American Academy (XAA) in July 2022, when the school officially opened in Singapore.
One aspect of teaching at XAA that I enjoy most is the play-based curriculum and its child-centred philosophy. The learning is child-initiated and restricted only by rules about safety and respecting others.
During their play, the children can access any resources they wish to use in class, and their explorations can take any direction they like.
