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.
Chew Chen Li, parent of Hannah Pua (K2) and Daniel Pua (N2), Mulberry Learning @ Alexandra“Xu Lao Shi has been working tirelessly through the year to nurture the students under her care. She is very patient, and knows how to handle the children. She also has a good rapport with the children, and you can tell that she really cares for wants the best for the children. I think her attitude and positivity is highly commendable, and it also rubs off the children, who become interested and start to love the Chinese language.”
Bryan Soh, parent of Sophie Soh (K1), Mulberry Learning @ Tanjong Pagar“Thanks to Teacher Hajar for her strong yet gentle managing of the children, and Lingdi Laoshi for her gentle and warmth to the children. My daughter tends to keep to herself and requires more encouragement and prompting to bring her out of her shell. Greatly appreciate the teachers helping to mould her into a more confident girl in school. Overall very friendly and helpful caring teachers who shows their love for the children creating a place of genuine warmth for the kids. I also like the excursions and trips organized for the kids.”
Happy Tan, parent of Anastasia Chen (K2), Mulberry Learning @ CCK“My daughter had trauma from previous school, where she was scolded by a teacher. Recently, her trauma appeared again and she cried every day going to school. But, teachers Hui Na and Zhang Laoshi are very patient and worked together with us to slowly build my daughter’s confidence again. After one month, we observed vast improvement. Thank you very much for the partnership!”
Ong Chee Kiong, parent of Ethan Ong (N2), Mulberry Learning @ CCK“Jiang Laoshi and Teacher Hui Na have been exceptionally nurturing towards my children. They are also very caring and patient towards the students in Mulberry. I have been receiving consistently positive feedback from my child for the teachers mentioned.”
Nataliia Fedotova, parent of Alexander Tretyakov (N2), Mulberry Learning @ Shenton Way“We enrolled Alexander in Mulberry Learning at Shenton Way in September 2017 and so far, my husband and I have been happy with our decision. 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. Not to mention the family activities we get to join in. The last time we participated in an event, we spent 3 hours with other parents, children and teachers watching the shows that they have prepared. As parents, we can see that this is a great place for children to learn and grow. We're really happy that we joined Mulberry Learning.”
Aloysius Siow, parent of Edrys Siow (N2), Mulberry Learning @ Tanjong Pagar“I would like to thank all the TP teachers and staff for showing love, care and concern for my daughter. Especially to Teacher Iris, Lin Laoshi and Teacher Jessica for taking good care of her in her daily school life and engaging her in fun activities during lessons. Thank you for their dedication and commitment towards the young ones. My daughter enjoys going to school because of them.”
