There are five Chiltern house preschools in Singapore to choose from, including one within Forum The Shopping Mall (583 Orchard Road).
The centres, named after founder Julia Gabriel’s parents’ home in England, offers full childcare services within a comprehensive preschool curriculum.
Among the aims of the programs from Nursery to Kindergarten is to nurture children’s growing independence along with positive self-esteem and self-image in an environment that has the nurturing qualities of home – warmth, security, and love.
Also, the company instills in children a love for learning through their earliest learning experiences, preparing them for a confident, successful entry into the primary school level.
The centres also provide a dedicated Learning Support program for children who need additional help to learn.
Each of the program curriculum has been carefully constructed and planned with the primary goals in mind, and includes the Oxford Reading Tree from the UK, Maths, physical education lessons on a weekly basis, computer work, cooking and science, art and craft, mandarin, speech & drama, and music.
The learning environment is enhanced by the preschools’ small class sizes, with an excellent student to teacher ratio (two teachers to a class of twelve to sixteen students).
With small class sizes, each teacher has the opportunity to follow each child’s progress in great detail, providing extra help in any area where it may be needed.
Furthermore, the children are often divided into small numbers for certain areas of the curriculum and given the opportunity to work together in pairs or small groups, with the teacher present as a guide.
The available preschool programs include full and half-day childcare, comprehensive nursery and kindergarten, interactive child-based curriculum, and learning support and therapy.
In terms of children’s ages, the limits are: Nursery One for 2 to 3 year olds, Nursery Two for 3 to 4 year olds, Kindergarten One for 4 to 5 year olds, and Kindergarten Two for 5 to 6 years olds.
