Mulberry Learning @ Shenton Way – A True Masterpiece
Opened in August 2017, Mulberry Learning’s new centre at Downtown Gallery in Shenton Way is fast making waves in the local preschool scene, and raising the bar of preschool education. Already well-known for its award-winning Habits of Mind curriculum, Mulberry Learning has once again created another gem – this time a tranquil oasis for parents and an urban learning sanctuary for children right in the heart of Singapore’s financial district. Infant Care and Child Care programmes are available at this centre.
Here are a few reasons why this award-winning preschool is definitely worth a visit for parents who want only the best for their precious little ones. But don’t say we didn’t warn you – spaces are limited, so act fast!
The Infant Spa
We all know adults can benefit from an occasional good therapeutic massage or soak in the hot tub, but did you know that babies too can benefit from a spa program? The infant care experts at Mulberry Learning certainly do, and so they ensure babies get the privilege of spa sessions with bubbles, whirlpool jets, and soothing lights in specially imported spa pods. Also included are baby massages by a certified baby masseuse which provide relief for colic and digestion, promote blood circulation, and strengthen the immune system.
The Central Playground
Located in the heart of the preschool, the central indoor playground is a child’s dream come true. A 2-storey wooden playground stands in a large sand pit, adorned with a kitchen role-play area, multiple swings, slides, and a wet play zone.
Remember the Road Safety Park @ ECP? The preschool has its own miniature track, complete with a zebra crossing, traffic lights, and parking spots for tricycles and cars. Children learn about road safety rules, all while having tonnes of fun, rain or shine!
The Habits of Mind Curriculum
Habits of Mind is a framework for intelligent thinking from the USA, also adopted by top schools like Raffles Girls’ School and Raffles’ Institution, as well as Singapore’s Ministry of Education to groom the brightest students in its Gifted Education Programme,
Mulberry Learning is currently the world’s first and only preschool certified by the USA for Habits of Mind. The curriculum, voted by thousands of parents as “Best Holistic Programme” in 2016, instills future-ready skillsets and intelligent thinking habits in preschoolers, moulding them into adaptive lifelong learners.
The Learning Studios
While many preschools typically have age-specific classrooms, Mulberry Learning takes 21st century learning to another level through the use of dedicated learning studios that allow preschoolers of any age to move around and learn in almost every corner of the approximately 9,000 square feet school. Each learning studio boasts an impressive array of materials, and provides an immersive, in-depth learning journey in the subject – be it the arts, the languages, mathematics or the sciences. Children embark on different learning odysseys each day, making each waking moment a memorable and fun one!
Genevieve Lai, parent of Charlotte Wei (N1), Mulberry Learning @ Shenton Way“Teachers are all commendable, they have gone out of their way to care and nurture, and shown sincerity and love. They have always considered the individuality of the children and have catered to their individual needs while ensuring no child is left out. When I have forgot to inform that Charlotte is not able to attend school, the teachers and staff named proactively reach out to me to ensure that all is well. Charlotte's intelligence, good nature, manners etc. are a wonderful result of the teachers' love. Thank you to all the staff for being so amazing and always going the extra mile."
Lim Zi Rong, parent of Erica Lim (N1), Mulberry Learning @ Shenton Way“Good mix of programmes for child to develop holistically, teachers put in a lot of hardwork and effort to make this happen. Kudos to the teachers, especially Teacher Vanitah. She cares a lot for the children and showers them with love. She is a teacher who puts in a lot of effort and hardwork into the children’s development and well being, very genuine and exceeds our expectations. With her, our child looks forward to school everyday and we know that she will be well taken care of as she learns and grow everyday.”
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.”
