LEAP SchoolHouse Preschool offers premium care and academic programmes for children from 2-17 months old (Infant Care), as well as preschool aged children from 18 months to 6 years old (Playgroup, Nursery and Kindergarten). As an extension of its Enrichment arm, LEAP SchoolHouse Preschool was established in 2016 and is located in City Square Mall (Singapore) and in Menteng (Central Jakarta, Indonesia).
At LEAP, we believe a conducive learning environment, a holistic curriculum and the teachers’ personal touches are key in helping young children enjoy learning and to experience little successes in their own ways. Why else should your child join LEAP SchoolHouse’s preschool?
Our curriculum was developed by our Founder and Curriculum Director, Mrs Esther Lim, who has nearly two decades of experience in Singapore’s education scene. With her experiences from MOE, LEAP’s preschool curriculum is designed to be in line with ECDA’s NEL curriculum. This means that at the end of kindergarten, your child should be ready for primary education.
Our curriculum is also holistic with every type of learner in mind. On top of the standard subjects, we also included Music, Dance, English and Chinese Enrichment at no extra cost.
While we place emphasis on the academics, our teachers also strive to make learning fun for the children by teaching through a more hands-on approach. Children are encouraged to ask questions, to be bold in trying new activities and to pick up information using all their senses.
Every day, our teachers spend dedicated time during assembly to impart values and reinforce desirable character traits. This is done through activities and our specially curated books that are in line with our monthly Character Building themes.
From the entrance of the school to the classroom, from the common spaces to our various activity areas – each space is specially thought out with the child in mind. Using only high quality furniture and materials, our aim is to provide a safe haven for your child to grow up in.
To provide a higher quality of care, we have kept our teacher-child ratio well within the recommended ratio set by ECDA:
|Teacher : Child Ratio||ECDA’s Ratio||Our Ratio|
|INFANT CARE: 2 to 17-month-olds||1 : 5||1 : 3|
|PLAYGROUP: 18-month-olds and up||1 : 8||1 : 6|
|NURSERY ONE: The year your child turns 3||1 : 12||1 : 8|
|NURSERY TWO: The year your child turns 4||1 : 15||1 : 10|
|KINDERGARTEN ONE: The year your child turns 5||1 : 20||1 : 12|
|KINDERGARTEN TWO: The year your child turns 6||1 : 25||1 : 12|
