From one centre in 2013 to 25 in 2017, Maplebear Preschools has been working to meet the demand for high-quality and reliable childcare.
Developed by Canadian leaders in education and reﬁned for Singapore by Patricia Koh, its curriculum is based on the bilingual experience and dedicated educational practices that make the education systems of Canada and Singapore two of the best worldwide.
As the founder of Pat’s Schoolhouse, Patricia has more than 40 years’ experience in the education sector. Under her guidance, Maplebear Preschools promises a safe, secure and stimulating learning space for children aged two months to six years, so parents can have a peace of mind knowing their child is embraced in an enriching and caring environment during their critical early years.
Maplebear is also known for its strong home-school partnerships and open communication with parents. It organises several activities throughout the year where it invites and involves parents and grandparents. Tel: 86468846/Website: www.MapleBear.sg
This preschool aims to strike a balance between the nurturing qualities of home and ensuring that every child is prepared for the academic rigours of primary school.
The combination of an environment ﬁlled with joy, warmth, care and love, and Chiltern House’s unique Edudrama teaching methodology, provides a dramatically different educational foundation that sees every student graduate with increased conﬁdence, positive self-esteem, strong communication skills and a curious mind.
The interactive curriculum includes maths, language and literacy, art and craft, cookery and science, computer discovery, physical education, speech and drama, music, regular ﬁeld trips and weekly sessions in mindfulness. And the school’s renowned Mandarin programme prepares students to be effectively bilingual by the time they enter primary school. See Young Parents’ Listings for branches.
