A world first, located in Singapore
Our Early Learning Village is educational by design and built for purpose. Every thoughtful detail is intended to ensure each child is happy, involved and learning. This extraordinary new facility is built on the simple truth: the environment nurtures the child. Inspired by Reggio Emilia philosophy, our early years’ architectural experts have created an exceptional space for sensorial learning at every turn. Families enjoy the warmth of natural wood timbers and bright airy open spaces, to provide endless opportunities to learn, connect and belong.
6 Outdoor playgrounds for discovery & play
Busy children need room to explore. The Village offers a warm environment with all the facilities and resources needed to stimulate young minds. It’s the ideal place for your child to be active participants in their journey of life-long learning. There are 6 dedicated large outside play areas to delight the senses where the blue sky meets textures of sand, greenery and wood. Every age group is thoughtfully catered for with different “zones” which encourage self-directed exploration and sensory inspiration. These include:
- The Shipyard
- Discovery Cove
- Sky Park
- Forest Deck
- Village Green
- Sports Pitch
Undercover 20m swimming pool
Never has water safety been more important than in the perpetual Singapore summer. Throughout the year, watch your little ones cool off as they learn water confidence and safety in the 20 meter swimming pool with in-water resting benches. The pool has been specifically configured to allow for either 10 short horizontal lanes for beginners, or 4 longer length lanes for confident swimmers.
Indoor Air-conditioned gymnasium arena: "The Hive"
Our arena is a ‘HIVE’ of activity with wide open space to run, dance, tumble and turn. Children happily join in the many varied activities in this fun space which is perfect for school-wide celebrations and co-curricular enrichment opportunities like gymnastics and ball games. Parents experience the pure joy of seeing their little ones try new things, celebrate cultural festivities and delight audiences with songs and performances.
Fully covered Discovery Space attached to every classroom
At the Early Learning Village, we integrate the principles of the Reggio Emilia philosophy that celebrates opportunities for the environment to be integrated as the ‘third teacher’. Each classroom is abundant with natural light, and stocked with beautifully designed sensory resources with quality timber furnishings to stimulate imagination and kindle curiosity. Attached to each classroom is a discovery space, which is tailored to the different grade levels allowing children to extend their learning as they venture through their own pint sized door. Here they can dig in the sand, splash in the water and enjoy different activities such as maker space or science learning with nature. Each teacher will change the resources and stimulation in the discovery space to extend their classroom learning.
12 Stunning specialist rooms
At the Village, our children are spoiled for choice as our beautiful facilities offer many opportunities beyond the classroom. Housed in one facility, are specialist multi-functional spaces inside and outside which provide the perfect environment for music, languages, art, innovation and enrichment. We are the only school in Singapore to offer the world-renowned Suzuki Violin Program from the age of 3, with the option to progress to cello from the age of 5. Playing the violin is proven to improve concentration, and combined with the Suzuki philosophy of encouragement, listening and learning with others, our young students foster emotional awareness and creative development. Our built environment supports this learning with dedicated music rooms and instrument practice suites.
