UWP’s 3+3+3 Philosophy

United World Preschool (UWP) is a premium international preschool that subscribes to a unique education approach that combines various practices, disciplines and beliefs into one seamless culture. We call it our 3+3+3 Philosophy.

Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Fröbel

UWP combines the pedagogy approaches of Maria Montessori, Reggio Emilia and Friedrich Fröbel into a unique and holistic childhood education practice. The Montessori approach emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural development within a child-size environment. The Reggio Emilia approach advocates a space where the teacher is a co-learner and collaborator, being visible for those who need and invisible for those who don’t. Lastly, Fröbel—the creator of the word as well as the concept “kindergarten”—promotes that children learn through play, emphasizing a value-based teaching and role-modelling in addition.

Dale, Bloom and Vygotsky

Our teaching principles are shaped by Edgar Dale, Benjamin Bloom and Lev Vygotsky. Dale’s “Cone of Experience” provides an intuitive model that people remember based on how they encounter information. Bloom motivates educators to focus on three learning domains: Cognitive, Psychomotor and Affective, each with its own taxonomy of learning to create a more holistic form of education. And lastly, Vygotsky’s main work was in “proximal learning zone” and “scaffolding” where he saw reasoning as a practical activity in a social environment. This in turn influences our three pillars of:

Environment, Curriculum and Teaching

  1. Environment – where a creative space with innovative tools are provided
  2. Curriculum – where lessons are learner-focused and value-driven, integrating technology in a complementary and selective way
  3. Teaching – where our experienced teachers are not only experts in progressive teaching but also passionate about promoting a holistic childhood education

Put all together, this is our unique 3+3+3 philosophy.

In short, we believe in providing our children with a creative environment, to engage in holistic curriculum, with the guidance of progressive teachers.

Every child at UWP is encouraged to become a thinker, a caring person, a risk-taker, an inquirer, an open-minded person, and above all, a life-long learner. And to grow up to learn, laugh and love.
