Looking for a preschool that balances academic excellence with a warm environment and caring teachers? Check out the new Viv’s Schoolhouse, mama!
When evaluating preschools, mama, one of the first questions that usually comes up is What’s their approach? Is it play-based? Reggio-Emilia inspired? Vivian Lee, the founder of Viv’s Schoolhouse, says her new preschool and childcare is all about a values approach:
“Simply put, we incorporate lessons on values and character development into every class, because to us, children’s emotional maturity and compassion towards others are of utmost importance.”
Viv’s Schoolhouse has a truly holistic approach to learning with equal emphases on academic excellence, character development and strong family units. It’s all about developing little ones into well-rounded individuals, mama!
The school’s unique, evidence-based curriculum has been carefully developed by in-house consultant Dr. Tan Bee Geok, who spent nearly 30 years as head of the M.O.E.’s Gifted Education Program.
Working alongside Dr. Tan is in-house educational psychologist Serena Lim, who focuses on students’ emotional and cognitive development and developing shared values like compassion and respect. The team is also dedicated to creating individualized lesson plans for each and every student.
Every detail has been thoughtfully considered in bringing about this new kind of preschool, mama – from custom-built bathrooms and shelving, to a beautiful outdoor play area with playground and swimming pool, to an amazing indoor gym with a feature rock wall and soft climbers! (You can check out the gym for yourself at a super fun gymnastics workshops happening on 4 March, mama. Click the link for all the deets!)
On top of all that, kiddos enjoy monthly field trips, low teacher-child ratios, and nutritious and delicious meals. And did we mention the convenient location in the heart of the city? Viv’s Schoolhouse is just a 1-minute walk from Bras Basah MRT (or five minutes from City Hall and Bugis)! It’s not just physically accessible, either: they’ve also got an open-door policy that encourages parents to visit classes and come along for field trips, because we are kiddos’ primary caretakers after all and play a pivotal role in their educational development.
We are truly impressed by the school’s commitment to learning – whether it’s nurturing students’ passion for different subjects, preparing them for primary school, or developing their social and emotional skills. It’s all about empowering children to develop a positive disposition and problem solve.
When we say they’re comprehensive, we mean it mama: Viv’s Schoolhouse is even up-front about their fees, which range from $1,100 to $1,300 per month (inclusive of basic subsidy) for full-day care.
Sounds pretty great, right mama? Contact Viv’s Schoolhouse today to learn more!
