Kinderland‘s success since its beginning 40 years ago has led to a regional preschool network of more than 60 centres across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, China and Cambodia, which nurture more than 20,000 children. The school strives to develop children holistically by encouraging them to learn life skills and teaching them about good decision-making in everyday situations. Kinderland’s main focuses include:
A comprehensive bilingual preschool curriculum is integrated with a music-infused programme that enhances language literacy in children’s early years. Its music programme helps children to develop confidence and express themselves.
The curriculum integrates Western education methodologies and Eastern morality, values and interpersonal relationships. It also offers a unique physical education programme, which nurtures health habits and lifestyle through cardio-wellness instruction.
The Literacy Through I.T. programme is a comprehensive, computer-based, multi-sensory instructional system designed to help children learn to write even before they begin learning to read.
Its STREAM Through Nature programme encourages children to think outside the box. It is structured as a series of six hands-on projects with modules organised around themes like nature and inventions, and how they apply to modern society.
“Kinderland provides a safe environment where every child is cared for, respected and supported. They have access to various activities throughout the day, and teachers work with children individually, in smaller groups and as a whole group at different times during the day. The school’s educational approach helps children learn independence and develop executive functioning skills, leadership, logical thinking, creative expression and more. Rena loves going to school and her academic achievements have improved!” – Lydia Chang, mum to Rena, 6, K2
