?How to Mould Your Children to be Intelligent Thinkers and Happy Learners (Through Play)
Introducing the only Preschool that adopts the Best of Reggio Emilia, Multi Intelligences, and the Habits of Mind ™ Frameworks to help your child fulfill their potential
You see, for the past 13 years, Mulberry Learning Centre has helped thousands of parents shape their children to become independent learners well-prepared for their future in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (V.U.C.A) 21st-century world.
Along the way, we're proud to have won numerous awards such as Young Parents SG Parents' Choice Award, "Best in Promoting Positive Learning" Award, and are the first and only preschool in the world to be certified by The Institute for Habits of Mind ™ from the USA. This pedagogy is also employed to teach MOE's Gifted Education Program Students. Now, we want to help you.
Why Choose Us
Ignite Child's Love for Learning
When you think of classrooms, you might expect to see a teacher at the front giving directions to the little ones. It's quite the contrary in our Reggio Emilia classrooms. Guided by their teachers, children get together to discuss and agree on a scientific inquiry they want to explore for the next 6 months. Along the way, they learn all about the topic through books, mind-maps, music, handicrafts, cartoons, and even go on field trips to soak up the real-world experience. At the end of it, they gather all their findings and present what they’ve learnt to the class--brimming with satisfaction. It's no wonder why this child-directed approach is regarded as the only global pedagogy truly able to ignite a child's love for learning.
Develop Future Ready Habits
We believe like you that, while knowledge is temporary in today's disruptive world, the right habits last a lifetime. Developed in the USA, the Habits of Mind ™ is a framework that instils 16 intelligent thinking skills and traits characterizing successful entrepreneurs, global leaders and world-class athletes. These habits are deeply integrated into our daily curriculum and include persistence managing impulsivity, clear communication and listening with empathy, just to name a few (check out FAQ section for full list of habits).
Build Solid Foundations
Would you like your child to develop an expressive vocabulary of more than 4500 English words, be familiar with 80 Chinese idioms, and have a strong grasp of mathematical concepts--by age six? It's possible with our signature core programmes. What's more, we have an extensive range of S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) enrichment programmes to allow children to hone their creativity, problem solving and critical thinking skills while having fun.
A Safe Stimulating Environment for Your Child to Play and Learn
The learning environment plays a key role in the Reggio Emilia approach -- serving as the "third teacher". Whether it's an atelier, reading nook, discovery cove, construction piazza or a baker’s kitchen, every learning space is thoughtfully added to suit your child's interests and developmental stages.
As the attention span of children is short, the layout of the environment also helps to keep them engaged by 'transporting them into different worlds' and changing activity every 30 to 45 minutes.

Get the Right Nutrition
Having the right foods can improve brain function, memory and concentration in young children. Our menu has been developed in collaboration with expert nutritionists from leading health foods companies, GNC and Nature's Farm, to incorporate brain foods and provide the best nutrition for young children.
Meals are freshly prepared daily by our in-house chef, and the menu is aligned with the Healthy Meals in Pre-school Programme (HMPP) under Singapore's Health Promotion Board -- we are proud to be awarded the Platinum Tier for HMPP.
Get the Right Nutrition
Bosco started from a child who's not able to speak in a complete sentence in Mandarin, to now being able to recite a Li Bai poem. The curriculum of the centre provides a truly holistic exposure to the kids. I loved the fact that meals are prepared by school's kitchen, including snacks given during tea breaks unlike some schools which only provide biscuits during tea breaks. As a working mother, time to prepare home cooked food is limited and truly appreciate that the centre ensures the kids' health are not compromised in terms of meals.

Out of all the schools we visited, Mulberry Learning is the most spacious and has the best facilities. There are places for children to play with sand, toys, water and even a slide - which Alex enjoys very much. They even have an extraordinary baby spa which I believe no other school has. What is valuable to me as a parent, is how much the teachers share with us to keep us updated on our child's daily activities in school. This feels like a personal touch because the teachers even send me pictures of Alex in school.

Who Are We
Mulberry Learning Centre has been creating waves and progress in Singapore's preschool scene since 2006. We are the first and only Preschool network globally certified by the USA for Habits of Mind and voted the Best Reggio-Emilia Preschool (2017 - 2018) and Best Holistic Learning Programme (2016 - 2018) among other awards.
Reggio Emilia is often regarded as "the only global preschool pedagogy truly able to ignite a child's love for learning". Since the 1950s, this child-directed approach has been gaining popularity among parents as it allows a child to develop resilience, responsibility, self confidence, teamwork, problem solving, as well as creative and scientific thinking skills.
The Habits of Mind framework has been adopted by Singapore’s?Ministry of Education?to groom the top 1% and the brightest students in Singapore under its Gifted Education Programme. Mulberry Learning is proud to be the?first and only preschool in to adopt Habits of Mind for preschoolers in Singapore and the region. It includes the following 16 habits:
We have all the learning and development frameworks in place for 2-months-old infants all the way to 6-years-old Kindergarten kids.
We pay attention to the smallest details and do things with extraordinary care. Class sizes are kept small to enable effective small group teaching and better care of each individual child. The teacher-to-child ratios for each age group are as follows:
We take the safety of our children very seriously. We are paranoid and believe that prevention is better than cure. Whether it is HFMD, haze-related illnesses, or child fevers, we take measures to make sure your child is in safe hands. Temperature scanners, air purifiers and hand sanitizers are but several of the essential features we have in place to keep our centres always clean and safe for your child. What's more, every centre has in-house cooks to ensure food is nutritious, fresh and properly prepared.
Parents will receive weekly updates of their child's progress and keep you updated of his/her learning in the classes. There will also be a checklist of milestones every term where teachers will observe and update all aspects of your child's developments such as language & literacy, math skills & concepts, aesthetic & creativity, social & emotional development, self help skills, motor development, and discovery of the world.
We look for qualified educators with?passion, strong dedication, a cheerful disposition, and an?ardent enthusiasm to go the extra mile?– just to make your child smile.?It's no wonder our teacher turnover rate is 25% lesser compared to the industry rate.
The first five years of a child are especially crucial for physical, intellectual, and social-emotional?development.?It's not just about keeping your child occupied. If you want your child to develop both IQ + EQ and fulfil their full potential, you may want to leverage on our pre-school education expertise.
We conduct special parenting workshops from time to time to equip parents with activities and knowledge that can help reinforce the Habits of Mind at home and get them academically ready for Primary 1.
