What parents are saying about MindChamps PreSchool @ Liang Court
“When we first visited MindChamps Preschool @ Liang Court, the staff patiently and cheerfully answered our questions about the centre, curriculum and the programme. Over the next few weeks, the teachers worked closely with us to help Emmanuel settle down. The Principal also had good advice and took time from her schedule to sit down to talk to us when we were at the centre and also update us by email. We are grateful for the advice, telephone calls and emails, as well as the updates from the teachers and staff on Emmanuel’s progress. We look forward to reading and seeing the photos of Emmanuel doing his learning activities at MindChamps. Thank you again for working closely with us as parents.”
– Mr Teo and Mrs Teo, parents of Emmanuel Teo

MindChamps PreSchool @ Tanglin
This centre emphasises on having children spend time in the great outdoors, as they enjoy the greenery and fresh air. Thus, an expansive outdoor area that is almost as big as the centre’s classroom space is made available for the preschoolers!
The kids start each day with a short stint of outdoor activities at around 9am. The outdoor space is integrated into the curriculum with fun, hands-on activities. Some of these activities include show and tell or book review sessions that are held on the mini outdoor stage.
Parents are also invited to attend events put together by the centre where the kids will showcase what they have learnt during the term. It is a definite highlight for the kids and they get to hone their confidence and presentation skills. The centre has also organised many family bonding events like an outdoor pool party and fruit-plucking activity (all from the centre’s very own garden).

What parents are saying about MindChamps PreSchool @ Tanglin
“We have been fortunate to have Hagen and Haley enrolled in MindChamps Preschool Tanglin. Over the years, we can see the commitment and dedication of the teachers here to bring out the best in them, nurturing them into a confident reader, teaching them to self-help and be responsible in their little daily tasks and developing them into inquisitive little ones! And now Hazel has joined her sisters in MindChamps PreSchool Tanglin as well. We would like to give special thanks to the teachers for their love and care, and for going the extra mile for Hagen, Haley and Hazel to make their learning journey such a pleasant and fulfilling one.”
