Nancy Devine has been teaching preschoolers at Singapore American School since 2003 and enjoys watching students as they learn and grow.
Each week of Summer Semester our youngest learners will have the opportunity to learn and explore different concepts through purposeful, practical and playful experiences. Students will have firsthand experiences incorporating nature, cooking, kitchen science experiments, early math and literacy, and art. We will explore the various learning opportunities using all of our senses. Children will be learning and playing together, fostering new friendships, and building their communication and collaborative skills through shared inquiry. Each day we will also engage in movement specialist classes.

Kevin Donaghey has been on the Summer Semester team for four years. Every year students express how much fun the program is. Donaghey's passion is physical activity. Helping students grow and develop both physically and socially makes his job one of the best in the world.
Note: This course is built into each student's schedule.
The Summer Semester elementary physical education (PE) program provides students double the fun. Current research shows that students perform better cognitively with physical movement. Students will engage in physical activities in a caring, supportive, and non-threatening atmosphere twice a day. Every student will be challenged and provided the opportunity to be successful. We aim to challenge every student with a wide variety of physical activities that will contribute to the development and maintenance of their physical, cognitive, and social wellbeing over summer.
