Tadika Aktif’s 21st Century Smart Pre-school is a transformed kindergarten that takes into account the globalised and fast-changing competitive environment that today’s children will face. In the 21st century, creativity and innovation will be highly prized – both for developing technology and new media as well as for solving challenges with limited resources.
We balance traditional and modern educational philosophies ranging from Friedrich Fröbel (who started the first kindergarten) to Dr Howard Gardner (eight intelligence) and Sir Ken Robinson (creativity). We also balance the East and the West by building strong foundations for our students in the world’s two most popular languages, i.e. Mandarin and English. Indeed, research has shown that children learn best between ages 0 to 4 years and can master at least two languages.
Taking into consideration all the above, Tadika Aktif emphasises on the 3R’s and 4C’s, namely, Reading Writing and Mathematics, as well as Creativity, Communications, Critical Thinking (Problem Solving) and Collaboration. Great effort has been made to source for multisensory and multiple intelligence-based materials from abroad as well as locally to build into our curriculum.
Children at Tadika Aktif learn through the fun way and love coming to school. Instead of the normal linear way of learning, we help to scaffold their learning by building on what they already know. In this way, they learn a lot of things, yet without stress. As a result, they gain confidence and are able to become independent learners much younger than their peers. We are very child-focused and spend much of our time in helping each child reach his/her potential. Our students are also guided to discover their passion early so that they can build on it to be successful in life earlier.
We have half-day, full-day and enrichment classes, which includes Kindermuzik and Speech & Drama by a specialised teacher using the Trinity College London syllabus. Our fees cannot be compared to other kindergartens as we are using the international syllabus for English (Jolly Phonics and Cambridge) and Mandarin from China.

My daughter, Megan had enrolled to Tadika Aktif since Jul 2015. I had been searching high and low to find a school that suitable taking account of teacher, environment, lesson and nutritious meal. Which Tadika Aktif has all of it. Principal Grace, is a passion and warm person and the best principal I had meet after more than 6 pre-school I had went to. Every progress of Megan is clear updated to me and every comment I made had been follow up thoroughly. I love their Mandarin teaching system, easy to understand with simple animated make kid full of imagination. All teachers are caring, good in couching and good listener.
I am glad that to send Megan to Tadika Aktif. In less than 1 year, I can see great improvement on Megan in term of confident, outgoing and passion to learn without giving up easily. I always believe a great personality and foundation start in young age. I am grateful that I found Tadika Aktif that able to provide excellent education and couching for my daughter.
It's my great pleasure to provide this testimonial to Tadika Aktif.
My kids, Kaylynn and Caden, have been studying at Tadika Aktif for 2 1/2 years. During this period, they learnt so much and was taken care of so well.
With the conducive environment, they have grown to love learning and the various programs that the tadika introduced (eg reading Chinese with animated computer program, and maths program), make learning interesting. With good phonics teaching, Kaylynn (6 years old) is able to read children story books on her own, and Caden (4 years old) is able to read words new to him.
The kindergarten also conducts several extra curricular activities in a year...making it fun and educational for the kids. Just this year, we had the Mother's Day event, halloween party, visits to the fire brigade and Kidzania, and the year end concert and graduation day.
It's not an easy task to take good care of a group of young kids but here, kids' concerns (eg misunderstanding between kids) and parents' feedback are dealt with effectively.
I'm grateful that the kindergarten has helped to build a strong foundation for my kids. Thanks to all in Tadika Aktif.
My eldest son was referred to Tadika Aktif from an ex-Principal. Felt comfortable with Teacher Grace’s tour around the kindy and decided to enroll him immediately. He is now in standard 4 and the education he received from Tadika Aktif had shaped him into a positive and diligent child. He excel in all his subject and top 50 in school for all the exams. Apart for being a scorer in examinations, he was trained to finish up his homework in daycare as how Tadika Aktif had trained him. A practice he practices up today without the need for me to nag and scream. I believe these training are very important for a full time working mom. I do not need to worry his homework and basically I just need to cook good food that Tadika Aktif has been providing and encouraging them to eat healthy food and gulp water like a camel ! And, this year, I have switch my 2nd son into Tadika Aktif after trying out 1 year at a well-known international pre-school. The teaching and mindset coaching in Tadika Aktif is just out-standing
