Founded in 2008, Blue House is Singapore’s leading Reggio Emilia inspired preschool and childcare, welcoming children from 6 months to 6 years old through a 2, 3 or 5 half or full day programme. Childcare was born out of the desire to bring the image of the child as capable, curious, and full of creativity to childcare in Singapore. A place where children can be themselves and feel empowered to explore while parents can rest easy with the highest standards of responsive care available all year round.
The school recognises Educators as guides and facilitators of the children’s learning experiences, cultivating a community of staff and families who believe in the children and recognise their potential, alongside an environment that is rich in meaning, materials and resources that inspires exploration to further the children’s interests, threads of thinking and projects of enquiry.
Children enjoy small class sizes of 14 up to 18, and Educator to Child ratios of 1:5 up to 1:9, dependant on age. Children benefit from large “chunks” of uninterrupted time outdoors to enjoy the myriad of learning experiences only nature can provide. We recognise the environment as a child’s third teacher, and we create intentional learning experiences to invite the children to question, test their theories, problem solve and research their ideas. We value each child both in their uniqueness and as part of a collaborative community of learners.
We are a school driven by a genuine sense of community and collaboration recognising everyone in a child’s life for having something of value to offer and support the children’s learning experiences.
We invite you to explore more about our school community, founded on the following key educational principles. We hope to have the opportunity to share this special environment with you.
Image of the Child
Children are viewed as competent, curious, full of knowledge and interested in connecting to the world around them.
Ideas are shared, work is exchanged and opportunities are created to extend and build upon theories that are uncovered.
Educators as Partners
As co-learners, partners and resource guides, Educators listen, document and support the child’s learning in a collaborative relationship.
Role of Parents
We openly and actively encourage parental involvement creating a genuine and supportive sense of community.
Children become a member of a community rather than an isolated individual and learn through their interactions with peers, adults, objects and symbols.
Role of the Environment
Through space, colour, light, displays of children’s art and attention to aesthetics, nature and detail, our spaces are designed to encourage encounters, communication and relationships.
Through experiencing materials such as clay, wire, charcoal or pastels, children can express their ideas, theories and feelings about the world around them.
A child’s learning processes are documented in detail to make learning visible to the children and families at school.
What Sets This School Apart
Blue House Nursery and International Pre-School is set along a jungle lane, surrounded by lush nature and with a view across to the paddocks and horses beyond, leading to a truly spectacular and peaceful location- something very special in the heart of Singapore.
The school environments, both inside and out are filled with rich possibilities and open ended materials for the children to use in their creative explorations. The environments and materials as set up by the team are always reflective of the school's image of the child- one where the child is curious and competent.
An international team of qualified teachers and specialist Pedagogistas await to welcome families and together, led by an experienced and passionate School Director the team offer every child a unique and engaging learning experience.
The parent community is truly a special part of life at Blue House - the school is a place that parents will always feel welcomed to be part of the school community and with a fabulous building that offers so many other facilities, including a gorgeous pantry where parents can grab a fresh brew and work whilst they wait for their child-the school is always alive with warmth and energy.
With a 2000sq foot atelier suitable for even the youngest members of our school community to attend there truly is something for everyone. The atelier, known as the Infant and Toddler Atelier is a Reggio Emilia inspired place that is for children 6months-36 months and is facilitated by members of the Blue House teaching team.
The school community is an important puzzle piece that fits together with the philosophy, environment, parents and teachers to create a wonderful pre-school experience for children.
