Pre School


Our Pre-school room

Consists of two rooms and is designed to provide a structured education that balances both child-initiated and adult-led activities. Our experienced practitioners create engaging and motivating experiences based on the children's interests to help them in the learning process. Our staff to child ratio is 1:8 

Reading and early literacy skills are nurtured through shared-reading sessions and circle time. The preschool room has dedicated areas for various activities and these are changed frequently based on the children's needs, interests, and discoveries. Children engage in activities such as music, writing, arts and crafts, and are encouraged to think critically and make independent choices.

At meal and snack times, we provide opportunities for children to develop their independence skills through self-serving. They even help with cutting fruits for snacks!
