Latest Chinese PreSchool/ Child Care Centre in Raffles Place!
A stand out from regular child care centres in Raffles Place, MindChamps Chinese PreSchool @ Cecil Street brings the first and only Chinese immersion preschool to Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD). With Telok Ayer and Raffles Place MRT stations a stone’s throw away, our Chinese child care centre at Cecil Street appeals to parents commuting into the CBD.
Why Child Care in Chinese?
We believe that nothing infuses language acquisition better than complete immersion. At our Cecil Street centre, we envelop our childcare and curriculum to nurture a consistent, encompassing Chinese-speaking environment. Our programmes begin from 18 months up to six years old. Research tells us a child needs minimally 30% of his or her waking time to acquire a new language.
Beyond a childcare centre, MindChamps Chinese PreSchool @ Cecil Street promises more exposure to the Chinese language in the younger age groups. With this strong foundation in mandarin, your child will progress seamlessly to Kindergarten 1 and 2, going on to master Numeracy and English. These are all carefully thought-out steps on how MindChamps’ premier childcare can give your child a head start to the primary years.
At our centre, you will find proven hallmarks of the MindChamps PreSchool childcare programmes. The heart of our childcare and pedagogy lie in our team of handpicked early childhood educators. Our centre forms a warm yet strong team of dedicated teachers who are experienced and passionate about early childhood.

MindChamps PreSchool Reviews
My first visit to MindChamps left me totally convinced and assured that I have found what I’ve been looking for – a welcoming atmosphere, great curriculum and super caring, patient and observant teachers. And to me, that is what mattered most. Also, the teachers and even the principal showed so much sincerity in welcoming me and my two children. That was the sight which made me so certain and assured that MindChamps provides the ideal environment which inspired curiosity and promotes positive learning.

Within a short period of time after Kedric was enrolled in MindChamps Chinese PreSchool, I observed that he became much more interested in learning. He has developed the ability to recognize and read English words and Chinese characters based on the techniques he learnt in pre-school. Moreover, he started to speak more Mandarin. The positive changes that I witnessed in Kedric gives us the confident that MindChamps Chinese PreSchool will help him prepare well for Primary 1 What’s more, there are programmes (e.g. MindChamps Reading & Writing Programme) that are part of the MindChamps Chinese PreSchool curriculum which are conducted in English. This will help prepare my son to cope with the bilingual requirement of Primary School.

I enrolled my daughter, Siang Ying, in MindChamps Chinese PreSchool to strengthen her foundation in the Chinese language. After two months, she’s now more fluent in her spoken Mandarin and more confident in expressing her feelings and thoughts. As MindChamps Chinese PreSchool also teacher her Math (Numeracy Strategies) and English (MindChamps Reading & Writing) as part of their curriculum, I am confident that she will be ready, both academically and mentally, when she enters primary school.

The principal and teachers never fail to update us daily on Hsuan En’s progress in school, and believe in working in tandem with parents to bring out the best in her. They are always there whenever we need any clarifications or reassurance. Hsuan En is also very fond of her teachers and would come home telling us about her day in school. I know that she is in good care when I leave her in school. Thank you MindChamps Chinese PreSchool for providing such a conducive environment for the Champs and for understanding what parents need.

Javier has exhibited marked improvement in his command for the Chnese language after enrolling into MindChamps Chinese PreSchool! He’s been speaking mandarin with me and could recognize his A BCs and 123; he achieved full score in his Chinese spelling; he could also write his name in both English and Chinese. What a difference a few months made! am so glad I took the plunge and made the decision to change his preschool. I’m also proud to say that Javier now looks forward to go to school and even requested to be in school early. Thank you MindChamps Chinese Preschool!

Within a month of joining MindChamps Chinese Preschool, we started seeing a vast improvement in Hanna's social skills and confidence. We will like to thank all the teachers at MindChamps for taking such good care of her and building that special bond with her.

The preschool is always bright, clean and inviting. The staff (led by the Centre Director and Principal) are pleasant, patient and helpful in attending to every child and understanding the different needs of every parent. The children are always laughing, participative and having fun when they are engaged in activities. A big plus (to us) is the well-spaced and enclosed gym area for the children to do their daily routine exercises. From our observation, the preschool also offers healthy and well-balanced meals and constantly inculcate the values of nutrition to the children.

Mika joined MindChamps Chinese Preschool when we relocated from overseas. She was studying in an international school prior to coming back to Singapore. The transition was not easy for Mika until we found MindChamps! Mika's health began to improve tremendously since joining MindChamps Chinese PreSchool, much to our relief. She also mentioned to us that the teaching in MindChamps is very interesting and told us that the teachers always talk to her nicely even when she made mistakes. It's such great joy seeing her enjoying going to school again!

We moved to Singapore mainly for Chloe’s education, as we wanted her to learn Chinese. Thus, we were very pleased to see how she has progressed from having zero knowledge in the language to being able to speak simple Chinese, understanding most of our everyday conversation at home and being able to read simple Chinese words without hanyu pinyin.
Chloe joined MindChamps Chinese PreSchool @ Tampines Central midway through K1, and within a short period of time, we have seen improvements in her English and Chinese reading skills. This has been the greatest satisfaction for us as parents, as we get to see the value of enrolling Chloe into MindChamps.

Thanks to the welcoming and patient staff at MindChamps Chinese Preschool @ Tampines Central, Jie Ying was able to adapt to the school’s routine in a very short span of time. Not only does he look forward to going to school the next day, he comes home chirpy and happily sings the songs that were taught in school.
From a parent’s perspective, I appreciate the attention paid by the teachers towards my child and the school's effort in addressing my concerns by updating every little milestone and progress made. l am also amazed at how well the staff know the names of all the little Champs – they never fail to greet the Champs during drop off and pick up. Kudos to all staff!

Ruoxian had gone through so many positive changes since she started PG last year and I know that a lot of it was due to the loving guidance and encouragement from her teachers. Apart from being more confident and enthusiastic, I can also see great improvement in her motor and social skills and independence, and how much she loves reading. I was also very surprised to see her perform so well without stage fright during the year end concert.
Thank you Ms Joyce for giving me a lot of encouragement, as well as to console and comfort Ruoxian when she fell sick constantly during her initial stage of joining the school. I also appreciate the fact that the school and team of teachers are working very hard to upkeep the hygiene standards for the well-being of all Champs.

As it was Faith’s first time attending full-day childcare, she took some time to adjust to the new environment, dealing with separation from her family and meeting new friends. Through it all, we are very grateful for the support, patience, understanding and love extended to Faith during this time
We would like to thank Faith’s teachers and the principal for their dedication, enthusiasm and care for Faith during the adjustment period. We got to experience firsthand the personal touch the MindChamps way and we are happy with our decision to join the MindChamps family.
