Global Speak

Kiddie Toes Montessori School (KTMS) holds true to its promise of providing its learners an avenue to grow -- not only locally, but globally. With today's fast-paced and ever changing way of life because of globalization, we all need to keep up.

The child today is the child of a global village. In a world where children are dressed in clothes made in China, bathed in soap made in Germany, fed with chocolates made in Switzerland, are made to watch tv shows produced in the US, and talk to a relative at the other side of the world through the internet... it is definitely undeniable how globalization has changed the way we live.

Although we at KTMS still believe that the best products (may it be food, entertainment, clothing or educational materials) are still from the local sources, we have to teach our learners how to cope in this ever changing, highly technical world.

We have started and included in our school curriculum a program called "Global Speak". In this program, the learners are taught not only phrases and words in different languages (English, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Thai, Japanese, Italian, Bahasa, etc), but they are also taught about each county's culture and tradition.

More importantly, they are taught about the current events and recent developments about each country -- from the typhoons in Asia, to the drought in Africa... from the elections in Burma, to the King's health situation in Thailand.

KTMS belives that at the core of holistic and global education, the learners have to be aware about what is happening around them, and made to participate in shaping a better common future for the world. We teach them how the human society is interdependent, and must therefore be united. We will teach them about peace and how to make their future sustainable and liveable. Lastly, we believe that this program will inculcate positive values and will enable the learners to thoughtfully evaluate their actions as global citizens.
