Singapore’s first stand-alone IB pre-school has moved from 2 Orchard Boulevard to a brand new campus on 8 Thomson lane. Spanning 200,000 sq ft, this is Singapore’s largest pre-school campus and will set new standards in early years environment design.
Designed by specialists in early childhood and inspired by the Reggio Emilia pre-school settings, the innovative and high quality environment is a beautiful blend of indoor and outdoor spaces. The campus has several new and innovative features that will establish new standards in the early years community in Singapore. These include dedicated children’s gardens, swimming pool, alfresco dining areas, and Ateliers for Art, Light and Food. The extensive outdoor environment will be planned to engage children in experiences that are in a natural setting with platforms for reading or dramatic play situated in the midst of lush greenery. The curriculum focuses on inquiry based learning through the provision of a physical environment that stimulates the children's thinking.
The school is an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School and offers the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children from 18 months to 6 years of age. The PYP is an internationally renowned programme that aims to develop the whole child by supporting the development of knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills and attitudes. Children will also be offered the well established Mandarin programme delivered in an inquiry based curriculum framework.
