Q: As a principal, what do you think are the three most important elements that make a preschool unique and appealing to parents?
A: A colourful, inviting environment, a progressive curriculum that takes cues from the local context, and dedicated teachers.
Q: What do you look out for when you pick your teachers?
A: I think qualifications are important, but how a teacher manages a crisis is what matters the most. I generally ask them a few questions and put them in certain scenarios in order to gauge their management ability and see if their teaching style is in line with what I desire.
Q: What do you think are essential traits that all preschool teachers should have?
A: I think everyone in this industry must love children, and on top of that, I think it is essential for educators to want to make a difference in the lives of their kids as much as possible.
Q: What is the greatest thing that experience has taught you?
A: I think the greatest thing would be the fact that each child is unique, and that every single individual develops differently.
Q: What is the most fulfilling part of your job?
A: I think it warms the heart most to see children acknowledge your effort; it is highly satisfying to build a bond with a child to the point where he or she feels your absence when you are sick or away and also the appreciation from parents.
Q: What do you enjoy about working with Mulberry?
A: The environment, curriculum, and approach appealed to me a lot.
Q: Any tips for parents?
A: Spend lots and lots of quality time with your kids.
An Award-Winning Curriculum
Mulberry Learning Centre offers an industry-leading unique curricular model for preschoolers. It is different from other Reggio Emilia-inspired preschools because it is the first in Singapore and the world to be certified for “Habits of Mind” – an intelligent thinking framework from the USA designed for young children. So wide is the appeal of “Habits of Mind”, that MOE’s Gifted Education Branch also adopted it to promote intelligent thinking in the top 1% of Primary School students in Singapore! Mulberry therefore ensures that every preschooler can benefit holistically from a trusted curriculum model crafted by educational experts and recognized globally. With its unique curriculum, nurturing educators and ultra-cosy learning spaces, Mulberry Learning has won several awards, including the recent “SG Parents’ Choice 2016/17” awards by Young Parents magazine, as well as the “Best of the Best Preschool Awards 2015”.
