First Steps Preschool is a leading Innovation-Focused school. It was conceptualized on the belief that children must be encouraged to discover new knowledge, rather than memorize information from books and school.
“The leaders of tomorrow must be innovative problem solvers, and not just experts within a limited field. The ability to create new solutions from out-of-the-box ideas will become the world’s most valuable skill.”
– Mr Er Kwong Wah, Chief Education Officer, First Steps Preschool (Former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education)
Experience World-Class Education
Based on the philosophy of world-renowned child therapist, Magda Gerber from RIETMUSA and the research of Hungarian paediatrician, Dr Emmi Pikler from Pikler-Lóczy, First Steps Preschool is Singapore’s leader in Early Years Education.
Helmed by our Head of Pedogogy, Ms Nancy Lee Wong (Associate Lecturer with National Institute of Early Childhood of NTU), we strive to give children the greatest gift of all – the ability to think creatively.
Confidence & Good Manners
Our public speaking lesson builds children’s confidence and serves as the foundation for them to engage in meaningful discussion and debate their ideas.
Also, when moral education is sacrificed in pursuit of academic excellence, we end up with uninspiring bosses. We are one of the only schools that focus on teaching children compassion, gratitude, patience and acceptance among other core character values.
Singapore’s Most Futuristic Preschool
We believe that technology and interactive media are tools that can promote effective learning and development. We use technology intentionally and appropriately to support our learning goals established for children under our care.
Children are taught sequencing, estimation, and problem-solving as they play with coding robots as they enter their own commands and create more complex sequences.
