A Vibrant Chinese Speaking & Learning Environment @ Fusionopolis
Building a Strong Foundation in Mandarin through our Chinese Preschool
Mulberry Learning @ Fusionopolis is our first Chinese Preschool designed with a proprietary Chinese immersion programme which nurtures your child’s love for learning and transforms them into maestros of the Chinese language. 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, over 30 Chinese poems and over 80 idioms by the age of 6.
Since 95% of your child’s brain develops before the age of 5, the early years are the best time to ingrain strong language fundamentals in your child. Especially for English-speaking households, sending your child to our Chinese preschool will help ensure that he/she is immersed in a Mandarin-rich environment to master the language and be effectively bilingual!
Beautifully Appointed Learning Zones within our Chinese Preschool
Beautifully designed learning spaces are hallmarks of the Mulberry Learning environment as we firmly believe that children learn best in beautiful and functional surroundings. Filled with various elements to promote an immersive Chinese learning experience for each child, no effort was spared to create these spaces of wonderment to stimulate their senses, unleash their creativity and encourage their natural urge for exploration.
– OUR VISION
The Art of Mastering Chinese – Discover our Chinese Preschool Curriculum
Our Chinese Preschool curriculum starts from the Pre-Nursery level and helps students to acquire the 4 skills of learning the Chinese language, namely Listening (听), Speaking (说), Reading (读) and Writing (写). With integration of the Chinese language into daily routines, children gain better exposure to the language as they learn, play, listen, sing, dance and interact with the teachers and their peers in Chinese. Besides developing a sound foundation in the Chinese language and its culture, children learn in a multi-disciplinary manner across subjects like Drama & Communication, Mathematics, Science, Music and Art & Craft. Weekly activities include learning traditional Chinese poetry, calligraphy, Chinese idioms, festivals and traditions, as well as moral values through the Confucian principles of “Di Zi Gui” (弟子規).
By the age of 6, our curriculum is designed to help children become young maestros of the language, acquiring an expressive word bank of over 4,200 Chinese words, learning over 30 Chinese poems and 80 Chinese idioms by the time they enter the Primary School years. 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.
1. 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 6.
2. Reggio-Inspired Project Inquiry™
Children from N1 to K2 will also engage in self-directed learning through Reggio-inspired Project Inquiry. Multi-disciplinary learning takes place with Chinese being the medium of communication and instruction as children develop deep subject knowledge, communication, problem-solving, questioning, thinking and social skills while having loads of fun in the process!
3. 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.
4. Current Affairs
An informed child has the power of knowledge. The children are engaged in regular discussions on current affairs and world events in the Chinese language. This enables the child to gain the confidence to converse in Chinese as they ask and answer questions while sharing thoughts and viewpoints with their peers.
5. Enrichment Programmes
Mulberry Learning’s enrichment programmes are S.T.E.A.M. based with and programmes like Picasso KidzTM , Busy BakerTM, Music MoovesTM and the Chinese Cultural ProgrammeTM being delivered in Chinese, thereby allowing children to reinforce their grasp of the language while acquiring additional knowledge across all S.T.E.A.M. domains.
6. International Friendship Programme
This special programme is designed to connect our little Mulberrians to children in partner schools in Beijing and Shenzhen via video-conferencing. Children from both countries get to collaborate and share project findings with one another. Not only does this encourage the use of Chinese for communication, it allows the children to appreciate cultural nuances and foster new friendships.
Why Mulberry Learning?
Voted as Singapore’s “Best Holistic Learning Programme” for consecutive years running, Mulberry Learning is the only Reggio-inspired preschool that adopts the Habits of Mind™ and Multiple Intelligences frameworks to nurture your child into confident communicators, independent thinkers and lifelong learners.
Proudly Featured In:
What Is The Habits Of Mind™?
Habits of Mind™ is about knowing how to behave intelligently and respond effectively to uncertainty or dilemmas. It provides children of all ages a framework for autonomous learning, critical thinking and effective inquiry. These habits are introduced to the child by infusing it into the curriculum and delivered through daily lessons and activities.
Being the only preschool in Singapore to infuse the Habits of Mind™ framework into its curriculum, Mulberry Learning is also the first to provide an assessment platform called “The Habits of Mind Assessment Tool (THOMAS)” to measure and analyze the development of these habits in the child. With THOMAS, educators and parents will have access to a report that provides greater insight into the growth of these intelligent habits in the child.
Two Examples of Habits Of Mind™
Listening with Understanding & Empathy
Listening with Understanding & Empathy is one of the 12 specially curated Habits of Mind™ infused into Mulberry Learning’s curriculum. Sometimes the loudest conversations are silent ones. Good listeners are able to see through the lens of many different perspectives and demonstrate their understanding of and empathy for another’s idea or feeling by paraphrasing it accurately, building upon it, clarifying it, or giving an example of it.
Managing Impulsivity is one of the 12 specially curated Habits of Mind™ infused into Mulberry Learning’s curriculum. It means being able to give yourself time to evaluate a situation, think through possible options and not make hasty decisions. Managing Impulsivity is a habit we all should Master!
We believe like you, that while knowledge is temporary in today’s disruptive world, the right habits last a lifetime. Please visit our centre today to discover our award-winning curriculum.

Testimonials From Happy Parents
Raymond and Melissa, parents of Elijah Ng, Mulberry Learning @ Fusionopolis“As first time parents who are new to this whole sending-our-child-to school thing, the teachers have been very patient with us (parents) and guiding us along the way to how and what we should do to prepare Elijah for school. Thank you for being on the ball with our requests! We feel assured to have our child be with you!”
Kareen, parent of Cepheus, Mulberry Learning @ Fusionopolis“It is the only centre which focuses on Chinese as the first learning language rather than English and this definitely works very well for me as we mainly converse in English at home. It is also part of the centre’s objective to instil the Chinese culture and history to the children from young, which is not common in other centres unless it is a special occasion or festival. The layout of Mulberry Learning @ Fusionopolis is very unique and encourages children to learn as they move around the school. It is as though the entire compound is one big classroom for them! I absolutely love the outdoor area, with a built-in mini playground and easels lying around for them as they pretend to be artists. There are also Sandplay, Waterplay areas and a mini-tricycle riding space as well! In terms of curriculum, Cepheus definitely benefited a lot from Habits of MindTM, which introduces and enforces good habits in children and as the children religiously practise them throughout the term. With the interesting Project InquiryTM teaching style, I believe the children learn faster as the topic is relevant to our daily lives and they are more receptive in receiving the information. Special shout out to the teachers who are always very patient with Cepheus and providing timely updates (pictures too!) and advice on how we can further nurture him at home. Thank you!”
