Kinderland brings quality infant care and bilingual preschool education for children 2 months to 6 years of age.
Founded in 1978, Kinderland Educare Services is a member of Crestar Education Group and one of the earliest established preschools in Singapore. It’s even the first and only preschool with a marching band here on the Red Dot!
Kinderland has made a name for itself through its musically infused programmes under Kinderland’s Integrated Curriculums (KIC), which incorporate various aspects of music into its classes. Students have the opportunity to undergo music classes for keyboard, percussion instruments, solfege singing and rhythm training. Proving the school’s success in and commitment to music education, its preschool marching band is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020.
Through Kinderland’s KinderBabes and KinderTots programmes for infants, little ones receive plenty of opportunities to hone their sensory-motor, creative, social and emotional development. The exposure to musical experiences has also been shown to enhance a child’s brain development –especially in areas of language and reading – making the school’s infant programmes perfect for your LO’s holistic development
Kinderland’s KICs are designed to help preschoolers integrate confidently with their rapidly expanding new world. Each term, broad themes are broken down into sub-themes to ensure level-appropriate learning as well as a continuity from pre-nursery through kindergarten. The curriculum domains are Creative Expression, Motor Skills Development, Discovery of the World, Logical Thinking, Literacy and Social & Emotional Development. Kinderland also provides preschoolers with a holistic education by offering a range of classes including a bilingual programme teaching English and Chinese, Literacy Through I.T., KinderFit Cardio-Wellness and S.T.R.E.A.M*, an inquiry-based project work programme that includes coding. Kinderland graduates are entitled to priority placements into The Grange Institution, an international primary school in Singapore which provides a multidisciplinary approach that develops important personal attributes and international-mindedness through the Cambridge and the International Primary Curriculums.
