ABC Nursery


 

“Bye mummy, daddy,” the child utters as he runs into the waiting arms of the teacher who is waiting at the gate of ABC Nursery. ABC is a registered Early Childhood Education Centre with a history that stretches back over three decades which caters to children from as young as two months to six years old. The grounds of ABC Nursery seem cocooned in tranquility, a million miles from the hustle and bustle of everyday drudgery. The well-maintained lawns and hedges plus its fully matured palm trees, interspersed with specially designed child-safe playsets, exude a quiet and calmness that is unique. ABC’s ‘prepared environment’ is specifically designed to create an optimal environment that supports and encourages independent learning and exploration. With its Montessori based curriculum integrated with a thematic and play based approach to learning, ABC’s curriculum and programmes are well prepared, child centric and holistic. Classes at ABC are small and divided into learning centres where trained and dedicated teachers provide direction to ensure a rich and balanced learning experience for the child.  ABC is a one-stop learning centre for all children whether they are infants in need of play companions or pre-schoolers on their way to making that transition to a “real school”.

Kinderland, Bangsar



With more than 100 franchisees all over Singapore, China, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Cambodia, Kinderland’s award-winning curriculum is the key factor for parents in choosing this bright and cheerful yellow-and-green preschool located in the Terasek neighbourhood. A curriculum that integrates the best education approaches and methodologies from the West with the values of morality and inter-personal relationships of the East is the result of almost 40 years of continuous research and development by Kinderland’s in-house team of early childhood experts. Framing creative expression, logical thinking, literacy support, dramatic play, and large group learning, Kinderland’s thematic approach in teaching provides a gradually widening circle of learning experiences for the child. A pioneer in incorporating a children’s music programme into their curriculum Kinderland is also the first to introduce higher order thinking skills into the syllabus (since 2015) to ensure that their students are always ready when entering primary school. Students are taught to use logical thinking in their discussions so that they learn to see things in perspective. Another standout aspect of a Kinderland preschool education is Dramatic Play, where the children practise role play and speech and drama. In keeping with Kinderland’s philosophy and the requisites of the Ministry of Education and the Early Childhood Development Agency, its programmes are specially designed to enrich and complement a child’s school experience.

KOOL KIDZ Early Years Learning Centre



Latest research supports the belief that children's learning patterns are established in their first 5 years of life and early exposure to play-based learning will help in a child’s development. Kool Kidz Bangsar, its sunny, spacious play areas and its world-class Australian Early Learning Education programmes, which cater to children 12 months to 6 years, focus on each child’s interests and development rather than on a rigid educational syllabus that aims to test the child’s performance. Flexible class schedules allow younger children to start with a 2-day week and gradually increase to a 5-day week depending on the child. Some might see that all they do is merely play. However, there is a purpose to its play-based learning; there is always intentional teaching behind the play….and the teacher’s job is to make sure that it is fun! Besides the academics, a child will learn self-reliance and problem-solving skills, know how to look after his or her own belongings, use the bathroom independently, be able to express emotions appropriately, and deal with competition and conflict. He or she will also form friendships, experience new discoveries, fun and real personal growth. Kool Kidz believes childcare and education shouldn’t be about business but about children.
