Not all preschools are the same. At the award-winning Mulberry Learning, children aged one month to six years are taken on an experiential learning journey, during which they develop next-generation skills to prepare them for the future.

Mulberry Learning is the first preschool network in the world to be certified by The Institute for Habits of Mind in the USA. It currently operates 10 centres in Singapore, in areas like Alexandra, Choa Chu Kang, Cairnhill, Toa Payoh, Woodlands and Shenton Way. It also has two centres in Australia and a preschool campus in China.


The vision of Mulberry Learning is to nurture well-rounded children with imaginative minds, positive attitudes and strength of character.

Its research-based pedagogy, embodied in the four pillars of iLearn, iExplore, iDevelop, and iExperience, has influenced the lives of thousands of children and parents over the years.

It involves a unique blend of Reggio Emilia-inspired project learning, Multiple Intelligences (by Howard Gardner, Professor of Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education) and Habits of Mind (by Arthur Costa, Emeritus Professor of Education at California State University).

Mulberry Learning offers a bilingual learning environment, with English as the main language and Chinese as the second language, and provides vibrant Reggio Emilia-inspired learning spaces for the children.


Mulberry Learning’s child-centric, skills-based learning framework develops pre-schoolers holistically. The children are excited to learn about anything and everything, are motivated to ask questions and explore the world around them, and acquire intelligent thinking habits that accelerate their learning.

They also build expert knowledge in both English and Chinese, as well as in mathematics and other fields – all while forging new friendships and having plenty of fun.

As well as developing next-generation skills that prepare them for the future, children who graduate from Mulberry Learning find the transition to primary school a lot easier.

Just ask Shandy Tang, whose son graduated from Mulberry Learning in 2016: “Xuan Zheng had a smooth transition to Primary 1, thanks to the strong foundation in literacy acquired while at Mulberry Learning. He also performed well academically throughout the year. Besides topping his class, he received the MOE education merit award. All his teachers say that he is a brilliant boy with a vibrant imagination and an inquiring mind.

“Xuan Zheng often reminisces about the time he enjoyed at Mulberry Learning with his friends and teachers. Xuan Zheng’s younger brother will be following in his footsteps and joining Mulberry Learning in 2019. We are confident that he will also benefit from Mulberry Learning’s comprehensive and holistic development programme.”
