Since 2009, this exclusive programme has been continually developed and tested by American-Singaporean John Cunningham (J.C.), educated in the USA and New Zealand. It started as an exclusive curriculum for Singapore’s most prestigious kindergarten. The STELLAR English Preparatory Classes are now offered to children all across Asia.

The STELLAR English Preparatory Classes: Learning Theme 1 – Nature, Weather & Seasons includes 4 storybooks on the topic of nature, weather, and natural phenomena that J.C. sourced internationally. In this Learning Theme, children can acquire STELLAR skills in English literacy and communication through educational songs, interactive learning activities, vocabulary cards, storybook review cards, narrations, and built-in assessment exercises.

Learning Theme 1 – Nature, Weather & Seasons includes these four storybooks:
1) The Rainforest Grew All Around by Susan K. Mitchell and Connie McLennan
2) Bob and The Flood (Full title: The Bobbling and The Flood) by Inger Brown
