Cultivating Future Skills Through iSTEAM
CAMBRIDGE PHILIPPINES takes pride in our PBEM x iSTEAM curriculum, where we further explore diverse topics under Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math through experiential learning. We encourage children to inquire, explore, and innovate in order to prepare them for a future of real-world problem solving through creative solutions.
iSTEAM embraces the philosophy of “thinking with hands”, and consists of hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration of interesting topics in fun and age-appropriate ways to prepare your child for future success.

Open Future Doors Book Series:
Open Future Doors by Cambridge Philippines is a book series coming out this June 2018, these books target the literacy development of preschool students from ages 1.6-6 years old.
In the efforts to acquaint our students to real life images, Open Future Doors veers away from the typical children illustrated books.
With carefully leveled content, this project aims to develop every child’s love of reading.
Our purpose is to scaffold each child through our comprehensive child care programme that involves:
A conducive, loving, stimulating, responsive and safe learning environment that will enable children to freely explore, experiment, create and learn.
Warm, caring, nurturing and qualified teachers and caregivers with positive attitudes of trust, respect and understanding of children.
Developmentally appropriate preschool programmes with concrete, interactive, learning experiences that take into account each child’s individual needs, interests, abilities and culture.
The curriculum aims to be purposefully connected to real life experiences, beginning with and extending each child’s existing knowledge through discovery, exporation, project based work and hands-on activities.
Founded on advanced educational research theories including multiple intelligences, ecological systems, Vygotskian framework and Montessori methods, our programmes promote an all-inclusive approach to children’s education.
Family involvement programmes that facilitate families and Cambridge Child Development Centres to be partners in their child’s learning journey. Together we can nurture growing minds by igniting children’s love for learning.
