Preschool (Early Years)

Our Preschool Programme provides a bilingual and diverse environment, offers a large degree of stimulation, guidance, and nurturing to develop in our young learners a love for information and knowledge.

We are incredibly proud of our:


We help our young learners to develop into confident and motivated global citizens: children who look forward to exploring and discovering the many facets of our world in their lifelong journey of learning. Our Preschool curriculum aims to foster and provide a holistic approach through an integrated theme-based, and hands-on, learning experience. We believe that such an environment will ignite a child’s curiosity and develop an aptitude for learning.

Our Preschool Programme aligns with Singapore’s Ministry of Education’s Nurturing Early Learners (NEL) framework. Our curriculum embodies seven key learning areas.

  • Aesthetics and Creative Expression
  • Discovery of the World
  • English Language and Literacy
  • Chinese Language and Culture
  • Motor Skills Development
  • Numeracy
  • Social and Emotional Development

SSIS Preschool is highly recognised for its bilingual immersion curriculum. Each class has an experienced early years team, comprising one English-speaking and one Chinese-speaking teacher who plan for the learning needs of individual children. The co-teaching model provides an enabling environment where children can:

  • Feel comfortable about their own identity, language and culture
  • Move easily between cultures
  • Learn comprehension and literacy in both English and Chinese Languages


Holistic education comes about when we extend learning beyond the classroom and its curriculum. We offer our preschoolers various activities such as excursions, theme-based field trips and performances. We believe these experiences can support quality curriculum delivery and can provide meaningful social and emotional development opportunities for our young learners.

  • Annual Spring and Autumn Excursions
  • Theme-based Field Trips
  • External Performances


At SSIS Preschool, we believe in the transformative power of nature education. We recognize that children have an innate connection with the natural world, and we aim to foster and nurture that connection through our curriculum. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that nature provides a rich learning environment where children can develop holistically – intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially. We believe that by fostering a deep connection with the natural world, children develop a lifelong appreciation for the environment, becoming responsible stewards of our planet.

Highlights include:

  • Outdoor Explorations
  • Nature Walks and Field Trips
  • Chinese Culture Programme: 24 Solar Terms
  • Gardening with the seasons
  • Nature-Based Art and Crafts
  • Environmental Responsibility


We believe in establishing a close relationship with each student’s family and see parents as essential partners in the student’s success. We work closely with parents and emphasise the importance of open communication and collaborative effort between home and school.

Every year, we organise important events to foster effective communication and engagement between parents, students, and teachers. These include the Parent-Teacher Conference, Student-Led Conference, and featured assemblies. These events provide an opportunity for you to have face-to-face discussions with your child’s teachers and gain insights into their growth and learning process.
