Even if your child is ready to start preschool, are you? Welcome to the happy little school that’s like a home away from home
Looking for the perfect preschool for your littley but worried about how your baby will respond to their first school experience? Mamas rave about Rain Trees International Kindergarten in Bukit Timah — a small, cosy school that prides itself on giving children a super caring and safe beginning to school life.
Rain Trees was established back in 1999, and is an independent international kindergarten, nursery and preschool that provides a fun, friendly and challenging environment for children aged 2 to 6. Owned by a British couple who’ve lived in Singapore for nearly 20 years, Rain Trees caters to a multicultural student body with teachers from equally diverse international backgrounds.
Every Rain Trees teacher has either international qualifications or teaching experience; children at the school learn through a hands-on, play-based approach in tandem with the proven British Early Years Curriculum. This ensures kiddos have a solid foundation of preschool skills so they will be ready to learn when they arrive at primary school!
Caring, exploring, and most of all, fun are the name of the game at Rain Trees, and this extends beyond the classroom to the large, safe outdoor play area, too, as the school considers the external environment a classroom unto itself. After all, outdoor exploration is just another way for kiddos to exercise their imaginations. Take a look at the school’s Facebook page and you’ll see one smiling face after another, whether playing outside, getting stuck in to an art project, or exploring Singapore on a fun and educational field trip. You can just tell these kids are truly happy, mama, and we know that must make their parents feel good, too.
There’s much to love about this wonderful little school, but we’re particularly fond of its name. Rain Trees was chosen to reflect the school’s deep roots in Singapore, along with its goal of nurturing each and every child so they can grow to their full potential. From its beautiful location close by to the Botanic Gardens, to its shady garden that is in fact sheltered by rain trees, it’s just another way to remind children of their beautiful, nurturing surroundings.
Picture how you want your child’s school experience to begin: what could be better than dedicated, caring teachers in a small, homey setting? Schedule a visit today to see if your child wants to become part of the Rain Trees family, mama!
