The CHIN CHOK CLUB is a parent owned playgroup, associated with the French School of Siem Reap (EFSR).
The CHIN CHOK CLUB welcomes toddlers aged 1-3 year old to a multicultural and bilingual (French-Khmer) pre-schooling programme in a child-friendly place.
The CHIN CHO CLUB offers the children a friendly and safe place to socialize with other children and benefit from appropriate educational activities to develop their senses and abilities.
The CHIN CHOK CLUB has been created in 2003 by a group of parents concerned about their toddler's arousing. When the concept first started, the parents would take turns to look after and entertain the children. Little by little, the CHIN CHOK CLUB became more and more professional through the recruitment of French educators and Cambodian assistants. The precious input of experienced crèche instructors helped to set up a programme respecting the specific needs and paces of such young children.
In September 2008, the CHIN CHOK CLUB associated with the French School (EFSR) and moved to their school building.

Educational programme :
Educational activities are proposed to the children to develop psycho motor skills, dexterity, their ability to communicate (language learning…) and especially to socialize.
All sessions are split in 20mn long sequences and alternate various activities to stimulate senses, communication, imagination, movement, and try to keep a balance between guided semi-guided and free activities. The educators have to adjust sequences accordingly to the reaction of the children.
Activities are organized around a main subject; specific new notions or words are repeated or emphasized throughout all activities during a pre-defined period.
Children are encouraged to participate as they can, according to their age and personal preferences.
Examples of themes: the body, shapes, colours, animals that can fly or swim, the circus, emotions, day/night, New Year, machines and transportation, different cultures,...
Examples of activities: Songs, nursery rhymes, storytelling, puzzles, play dough, piling & construction games, origami, cut & paste, painting (with fingers, sponges, paintbrush, stencil,...), drawing (with pen, pencils, chalk, colouring,...), water games, sandbox, party & fancy dressing, music & dance, excursions (only if enough parents can accompany the group),...
