When our toddlers make that big move and settle into a new life at preschool in Singapore, we want to find just the right place where learning is fun and their innate curiosity and creativity can continue to blossom. LeClare Preschool in the vibrant neighbourhood of Bugis has carefully designed an inspiring environment where children can play, explore and naturally want to learn more. Combined with its nurturing program that encourages kids to be imaginative, confident and resilient learners, LeClare has created a hard-to-find atmosphere families will fall in love with.
A balanced approach to learning
Using a beautiful balance of teacher-directed and child-led learning, LeClare Preschool keeps a low teacher-child ratio to ensure every child’s interests, strengths and weaknesses are supported – and that little ones have a voice.
The program for toddlers blends the arts with an inquiry-led approach: class teachers design a theme for each term that’s in tune with the needs and interests of the little ones under their charge. For example, Nursery 1 (N1) kids are currently learning about ‘My Feelings and My Body’. Through activities that boost literacy, numeracy, social skills, and physical, cognitive and creative development, children are led to new understandings, make their own discoveries along the way and grow into critical thinkers and confident learners. Plus, each class has both an English and Mandarin teacher to give kids a natural start in bilingualism.
At LeClare, teachers create a partnership with parents to understand each child from the family perspective – it’s all about sharing the same goals and helping little ones thrive at school and at home.
A calming, creative space
Walk into LeClare Preschool’s Reggio Emilia-inspired environment and it’s clear just how much thought has been put into this space. Neutral tones, natural wood furniture and lovely light make the space calm and inviting, while highly textured tools for play engage the senses. Music and light are used brilliantly to set the tone throughout the children’s day: soothing music and dimmed lights ease little ones into nap time; a mysterious tune tells kids it’s story time; brighter lights help keep children alert and focused during lessons.
Every day is an adventure for little ones at LeClare Preschool! From mornings spent playing dress-ups, or in the sand pit, to afternoon sessions of messy play, cooking and storytelling, there’s so much for toddlers to enjoy alongside building their skills in the classroom. Thanks to specialty play spaces in the school, there is never a dull moment. We love that outdoor play takes place in a stunning 14000sqft Rooftop Adventure Park complete with a huge jungle gym, water play and a community garden (plus a cycling arena coming in November), and that kids can enjoy music and singing in the Studio and arts and crafts in the Atelier every single day.
