In the first five years of their lives, what we impart to our children will lead the way forward into their future. That is why Kinderland’s programme stirs curiosity, cultivates care, expands capability, promotes creativity, builds confidence and above all, sharpens communication as core competencies in our children. With this philosophy in mind, we have designed our curriculum around the K.I.N.D.E.R. multi-disciplinary lands to help your inquisitive child to learn better and more.
Why Kinderland is the right choice for your child
How do we achieve these?
Our academic team will help you understand how Kinderland’s unique time-tested curriculum can maximise your child’s talents and abilities.
Kinderland’s Time-Tested Curriculum
Kinderland’s music-infused curriculum is built around the K.I.N.D.E.R. multidisciplinary lands. Six developmental domains based on learning areas identified by the Singapore Ministry of Education in the Nurturing Early Learners framework are covered.
🏃 Kineticland – Strengthen motor skills and build sharper minds
💡 Intelliland – Hone language and literacy skills through a specially curated multi-sensory programmes, building confidence in reading and writing
🌺 Natureland – Spur inquisitive minds to explore and seek answers in nature through Discovery of the World
💻 Digiland – Understand numeracy and build logical thinking for real-life application, comprehending the fundamental skills of programming through coding
😇 EQland – Develop character by refining social and emotional skills, growing a heart for the community
🎭 cReativeland – Encourage creative expression through various forms of music and arts, honing children’s sense of aesthetics, rhythm and coordination
Children’s Music Programme
Instrumental music, taught by Music Specialist, unlocks new areas in your child’s cognitive growth. It is a key component in Kinderland’s music-infused curriculum. Instrumental musical training develops the part of the brain that controls visual-spatial skills, vital for learning maths and science. It sharpens memory and improves verbal intelligence and literacy. Research has shown that formal music education helps to promote children’s brain development.
Beyond classroom learning, Kinderland is the first and only preschool in Singapore with a marching band and stage ensemble. Marching band is only available at Kinderland Academy @ Yio Chu Kang. Our experienced performers from the marching band and stage ensemble had put up countless performances for dignitaries in occasions like Early Childhood Conference 2019 and Octoburst 2019 – A Children’s Festival by Esplanade.

Literacy Through I.T.
Developed in the U.S., this multi-sensory programme is designed to empower children to write even before learning to read. Children are encouraged to express their ideas freely using sound association, without needing to observe the rules of grammar. The goal is to allow children to enjoy the process of learning to read and write through the use of technology, and for them to experience a sense of accomplishment.
Children will go through the process of
- learning to recognise words using audio recordings
- matching alphabets to form words using games and interactive resources
- typing out alphabets to construct words and sentences.
KinderFit Cardio-Fitness Programme
KinderFit is a fitness cum cardio wellness programme for children. It incorporates games and exercises to develop their confidence and ability to control their body movements. Here at Kinderland, your children enjoy 50% more physical activity than most of their peers. Through KinderFit, they also learn to measure their heartbeat and are educated on proper eating habits and lifestyle.
In S.T.R.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Reading & wRiting, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics), children are engaged in exploration and effective learning through inquiry-based project work. From idea conceptualisation, research, creation of prototypes to construction of actual structures, children are actively involved to lead and problem-solve their own queries. Coding is incorporated into selected S.T.R.E.A.M. projects.
In Kinderland, children are taught to care for themselves, the community and the environment. Through community initiatives and collaborations with the Lions Befrienders, Singapore Red Cross and other charity organisations, we cultivate the habit of giving through everyday acts of care and empathy. Through EQland, character development A-Z programme, we nurture the caring Kinderland child to be curious, socially responsible, mindful, and have a growth mindset.
Kinderland opens an amazing world of learning opportunities for your little ones. We do not just ready them for school, but empower them to be competent learners and achievers of tomorrow.
Our Curriculum Specialists share how our unique
integrated Kinderland programme helps children develop holistically.
Beyond the basics
We believe in stronger body, stronger mind for learning. Kinderland’s certified in-house nutritionist plans our menu according to the Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme. In line with Health Promotion Board’s guidelines, we ensure our children absorb the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and build a strong immunity.
Not only are our teachers professionally trained to handle infants and young children, they are also trained in child first aid. You can rest assured that your child will be in safe hands.
Hygiene and Cleanliness
Our preschools maintain stringent safe management measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. We sanitise our premises regularly throughout the day. Our centres are equipped with the latest air steriliser, effective against 99.9% coronavirus and other viruses. These are in addition to our centres’ existing air purifier and use of UV sanitisation light, all for your greater peace of mind.
Purposefully-Planned and Designed Spaces to Enhance Your Child’s Learning
Each learning space in our centres is carefully planned by our curriculum team
to optimise your child’s developmental growth and learnings.
Music lessons are conducted in facilities fully equipped with professional instruments such as Yamaha-trademarked electronic organs, electones, or pianicas. Children learn basic notation and instrument playing.
Centres are fitted with I.T. gadgets to facilitate our signature Literacy Through I.T. programme. Children are taught to explore technology safely with guidance from teachers.
Indoor Play Area
The indoor play area in our centres is the perfect setting for activities of KinderFit, regular centre events and enrichment programmes like Gymnastics. The area is often buzzing with children’s laughter.
Infant Care Bay*
The clean and comfortable setting makes our infant bay a home away from home. The intentional learning spaces are conducive to the different stages of your infant’s development. From nap to gym to reading or feeding, our equipment is built to height so our infants and toddlers will feel more confident exploring their surroundings.
*Available at all centres except Ministry of Manpower, Siglap and Upper Changi
In line with Health Promotion Board guidelines, our certified in-house nutritionist plans the menu according to the Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme to ensure our children absorb the necessary nutrients for healthy growth. Children love to sneak a whiff of their tasty meals when passing the kitchen.
Outdoor Play Area
Spacious outdoor area is available in selected centres for children to soak up the sun during physical activities. A variety of vegetation is planted within school grounds, allowing safe exploration by our children while they learn about nature. Outdoor learning experiences and S.T.R.E.A.M. projects excite the curious Kinderland child with an active desire to investigate and learn more about the natural environment.
HEAR FROM OUR PARENTS
I would like to commend Ms Lin and Zhang Laoshi 张老师 for relentlessly keeping up with staying in touch with the kids during the lockdown period by holding classes and thinking of ways to keep them entertained. Also, because Emily wouldn’t eat much on her own and wouldn’t allow anyone else to feed her, she has been very difficult during mealtimes. Both Ms Lin and Zhang Laoshi 张老师 have been very patient with her. I also noticed that Emily has become more independent lately. She has learnt tasks like washing her face and mouth, including taking off her own shoes. Thank you Teachers at Kinderland Sunshine Place.
After attending Kinderland (her 4th preschool), Faith has become a much more confident, cheerful & lively person, much unlike the timid, quiet & introverted girl she was before. Back then, she always seemed to look like there was something she wanted to say, but just couldn’t/wouldn’t (which was honestly very worrying).
Lucky for us, we found Kinderland (MOM) and I am not only thankful but also grateful beyond words to Kinderland for helping me by transforming Faith into the confident & bubbly girl that she is now. She is laughing so often and also constantly wears a smile now. ;-)
Thank you for the patience you display while teaching Bevis. Your inspirational words are like beautiful footprints that have been etched in the kid’s hearts and mind forever. We see how much Bevis has grown from when he first joined as a toddler to now that he is in K1; physically, knowledge and confidence wise.
Thank you for the guidance to Bevis and the never-giving-up spirit you all (teachers) have shown and influenced on the kids.
This year has been a little more challenging with Covid 19 situation, however the spirit of an educator still shines! My family thank you so much for all your hard work and being such Wonderful Teachers! You are doing a fantastic job!
Dayna has been in the capable hands of the staff at Kinderland Hougang since 5 months old, starting with full day Infant-care. Her transition to full day childcare in PN1 class this year was done under the caring and thoughtful supervision of both her Infant-carers and PN1-teachers. Many thanks to Ms. Maureen and Chen Laoshi for their tireless efforts during Dayna’s Infant-care days, giving me and my husband absolute peace of mind to leave Dayna in their care. And much appreciation for Ms. Mei Xian and Liu Laoshi for continuing the same care and support for Dayna’s development after moving up to PN1.
It’s their (teachers’) deep expertise combined with tangible love that is helping to build up Leonardo. We can see daily improvements; languages, behavior & social attitudes.
The activities in school help him to further develop his mind.
Leonardo always calls his teachers’ names several times in a day during weekends, and looks forward to be back in school the coming Monday. A sign of unconditional love.
We would like to extend our gratitude also to the whole staff for their precious efforts during the health emergency that hit the country. They have done a great work to secure our beloved ones, and to keep the environment safe. A sign of professionalism and dedication that we can’t forget.
Dear Mr Kingston, Thank you very much for going the extra mile to produce interesting content for the children during circuit breaker. Your passion and enthusiasm as a teacher and your genuine love and care for the children inspires and can be felt by the heart. You have an amazing ability in handling the children, and Joshua has a great liking as you are such a fun and interesting teacher. Thank you for also inspiring him to pick up martial arts.
I would like to thank Ms Cristine, Fu Laoshi and Ms Zyra for their relentless effort during the HBL period. I am very impressed by their efforts to prepare and organise the worksheets and art & craft materials nicely. It was not an easy period for them and they are able to display their professionalism in teaching the children. Javier and Jonas have grown tremendously under their teaching. In addition, I would also like to thank the rest of the Marine Parade Teachers for their love and care to my children. Lastly, also to thank the Cook aunty for providing such nutrition and tasty food. Both my children love her cooking.
We want to thank Teacher Corrine Tay and Fei Lan lao shi for constantly guiding our little Luke throughout. Even during the home-based learning period, they both ensured that Luke is participating actively in the e-learning. They always ensure Luke has opportunities to speak online. It was tough at the start of the e-learning for both teachers and parents, but both teachers made sure they reconfirm with us, parents, that the students had understood the lessons. They make time to call us if we need support.
Thank you for acting as parents in school for our kids. :-)
Sophie really had a fun and enriching experience in Kinderland. She is always sharing with us the fun activities conducted in school. She is looking forward to attending school every single day. Thank you for conducting the zoom sessions during the circuit breaker. This year, all the teachers had a challenging job. It’s definitely not easy but I must say, all the teachers in Kinderland did a fantastic job! The children had fun attending the daily online lessons. Thank you for the mask and small gifts given too. If there were no teachers, all other professions would not have exist! You will always be the child’s hero!
