Our new Chinese Preschool opened in March 2020 at the Solaris building, located within the Fusionopolis area and a short walk away from the Circle Line One-north MRT station.
This new centre will offer a unique Chinese-immersion programme for preschoolers aged 18 months to 6 years, focusing more on Mandarin especially in the early years, while also ensuring they are well equipped to excel in Primary School by the time children graduate.
The specially designed Chinese-immersion curriculum will continue to feature Mulberry Learning’s renowned signature programmes like Habits of Mind and Reggio Emilia Project Inquiry, thereby providing a holistic education and nurturing your child into a truly bilingual citizen for the future. This centre only provides Child Care Programme for children aged 18 months to 6 years.
Mulberry Learning’s Chinese Preschool Programme
Our Chinese preschool integrates the Mandarin language into the child’s daily routine and makes learning it a delight. This enables them to gain better exposure to the language as they learn, play, listen, sing, dance and interact with the teachers and their peers in Mandarin. The children also gain a deeper understanding of the language whilst nurturing a love for it as they engage in a myriad of fun activities to learn about the amazing arts, literature, philosophy and festivals of one of the oldest cultures in the world.
As the Chinese preschool programme is also integrated with Mulberry Learning’s award-winning iDevelop / iExplore / iExperience / iLearn curriculum model, parents can rest assured that signature programmes like Reggio-inspired Project InquiryTM, Habits of MindTM and Literacy FunTM are still included as part of the holistic learning that nurtures the Future Ready Child.
Highlights of our Chinese Preschool Programme
A Sound Foundation in Chinese Literacy
With a structured and progressive pathway designed to build competency in Chinese, our Chinese preschool programme enables the child to develop an expressive vocabulary of more than 4,200 Chinese words, while familiarizing and reciting more than 30 Chinese poems and over 80 idioms by the age of six. Their reading, listening, speaking and writing skills are also honed through a myriad of fun lessons and activities.
Habits of Mind™ and Reggio-Inspired Project Inquiry™
Children from N1 to K2 will be engaged in self-directed learning through the Reggio-inspired Project Inquiry. Learning takes place in an inquiring environment with Chinese being the medium of communication and instruction as they develop communication, problem-solving, questioning, thinking and social skills while cultivating positive attributes.
Moral Education through Di Zi Gui (弟子规)
Besides learning how to listen, read, speak and write proficiently in Chinese, moral values are imparted to the children through the teachings of Di Zi Gui (弟子规). Based on the ancient teaching of the Chinese philosopher Confucius, it emphasizes on the basic requisites for being a good person and guidelines for living in harmony with others.
An informed child has the power of knowledge. The children are engaged in regular discussions on current affairs and world events in Chinese. This enables the child to gain the confidence to converse in Chinese as they ask and answer questions while sharing their thoughts with their peers.
Mulberry Learning’s enrichment programmes are S.T.E.A.M. based and aimed at building your child’s current affairs and critical thinking skills. Designed on the theory of Multiple Intelligences and delivered in Chinese, your child acquires their knowledge of language, literacy, numeracy and science in a fun and interactive way.

International Friendship Programme
This programme is developed to connect Mulberrians to children in partner schools in Beijing and Shenzhen via video-conferencing technology on a monthly basis. The children from both countries learn to collaborate and share their findings with one another as they conduct project work. Not only does this encourage the use of Chinese for communication, it enables the children to embark on a cultural exchange while fostering new friendships. Besides project work, Mulberry Learning also actively conducts student exchange programmes for both parents and child. The aim of this is to create a platform for the visitors to meet and interact with the Mulberrians locally.
Siti Nurzaifah, parent of Freya Bte Muhammad Fauzi (Infant), Mulberry Learning @ Toa Payoh“We wish to offer our heartfelt thanks to all teachers for making Freya’s first school experience enjoyable for us. I would like to commend Teacher Salbiah and Teacher Eunice’s commitment and passion for caring for the kids. The affection and personal attention Freya received allowed her to fully enjoy the whole experience of school with a positive attitude. It is hard for any parent to trust another to treat their child with sensitivity and care but the teachers made it easy for us as parents to send him to school without worry. I would also like to thank teacher Salbiah for going the extra mile to update us on Freya’s wellbeing even her non-working hours.”
