Mulberry Learning sets your children up for success by helping them develop intelligent thinking habits, and maximising their capacity to learn from a young age.
One preschool network in Singapore that prides itself on nurturing “future-ready” skill sets in children is Mulberry Learning – an established preschool brand across Singapore, Australia and China. It’s known for its vibrant learning spaces, bilingual programmes, holistic development outcomes and emphasis on character building via a framework called the Habits of Mind.
ENDORSED BY EDUCATIONAL EXPERTS AND PARENTS
The Habits of Mind framework received a ringing endorsement in the inaugural Young Parents’ SG Parents’ Choice 2016/2017. This year, for the second year running, Mulberry Learning is once again voted the Best Holistic Learning Programme in Singapore. The Ministry of Education (MOE) has also adopted the same Habits of Mind framework to help groom the top one per cent and the brightest primary schoolers in its Gifted Education Programme (GEP).
REAL LIFE, REAL LESSONS
As the ﬁrst and only preschool to be certiﬁed by The Institute for Habits of Mind, Mulberry Learning focuses on instilling positive habits as prescribed by the framework. Developed by Dr Arthur Costa, Emeritus Professor of Education at California State University, the Habits of Mind framework provides children of all ages a framework for autonomous learning, critical thinking, effective inquiry and how to behave intelligently and respond effectively to dilemmas.
The habits include Persisting, Managing Impulsivity, Questioning and Posing Problems, Thinking Interdependently and Flexibly. To get kids to use the framework like it’s second nature, a new habit is introduced every month in lessons and reinforced repeatedly, even during playtime, mealtimes, and wash-up.
Unlike traditional preschools that use ﬁxed classroom spaces, Mulberry Learning believes in allowing children to move around each part of the school, mingle and learn in any corner – similar to a workplace-of-the-future concept, where collaboration and ﬂexible-use spaces take centre stage. As such, the facilities are designed to have dedicated multi-age learning studios equipped with an array of materials on the arts, languages, mathematics and sciences.
