Child Care

History & Background

First established in 1978, Kinderland preschool expanded rapidly to over 25 centres in Singapore. Over the years, it has won multiple awards such as the Singapore Quality Class Award, the SuperBrands Award 2003, and the Singapore Promising Brand Award 2002. 6 of its centres are SPARK certified. Many of its centres are located within the office building of statutory board and cater to parents who works in the proximity.

Education Philosophy

Kinderland’s curriculum integrates the best education approaches and methodologies from the West and the values of morality and inter-personal relationships of the East. This is achieved through a team of in-house expertise in curriculum research and development, continuous teachers’ training and strong affiliations with renowned preschools and institutions of higher learning in different countries. The curriculum is based heavily on the use of music to enhances language literacy in young children. Use of keyboard, percussion instruments, singing and rhythm training provide crucial support for brain development in the child’s early years. This programme is facilitated by professional music teachers with internationally-recognised qualifications. The children are able to prepare for formal schooling in a fun and active way.

    The teacher is environmental friendly. When there is water spilled on the classroom floor, she did not use tissue paper instead she used the child school shirt to wipe.
  • by Joe tan - 5 months ago
    Well done to the teacher. Disobedient children must be discipline. Even if corporal punishment is needed. If parents don’t teach their children manners, the teachers will have to teach. Otherwise, the society and police will teach. When that happens, it will be all too late for the child.

    Abusing defenceless kids..Outright inhumane operators with the lowest form of moral character.
  • by Mei - 5 months ago
    All our kids and also our siblings kids go to this school. The school has been around for many years and continue to maintain the same standard of care for kids of all ages. When people mention Kinderland at Upper Changi, most staying around the area know about their good reputation. They have now s...

    If you hate your kids, send them here.. They will get abused and might die from getting waterboarded by the teachers

    THIS SCHOOL DO NOT DESERVE ANY STARS. WTH IS THE PRINCIPAL DOING. YOU ARE AT FAULT AS MUCH AS THE TEACHER.
  • by G - 5 months ago
    The fact that the principal knew about what happened but downplayed the incident to the parents, shame on her! The principal should have fired that staff immediately & truly committed to the children’s safety in school and not offer up false updates. If even the principal & management doesn’t take t...

    Until there is an overhaul of their culture, enter at your own risk.
  • by Riyaz - 5 months ago
    You don't deserve any stars. Let this be here to serve the future parents who are even considering your centre as a reminder. Your centre along with its useless, heartless Principal abuse the voiceless children there. Nothing more evil to abuse the helpless babies under your care. Your centre is kno...
  • by Meibao - 5 months ago
    To the marketing manager's point on CNA that some parents wrote good notes to say how they have seen their children develop well in your centres. Pls lah, they have yet to find out only how their kids may have been abused by your abusive teachers.
  • by K - 5 months ago
    Dangerous centre. Don't send your kid here if you value their lives.
  • by Yuwen Zhuo - 5 months ago
    I cannot imagine how the principal of this centre has allowed this incident to take place repeatedly under his/ her watch. I cannot imagine how uncomfortable the other teachers must have felt to witness such scenes. ECDA needs to step in and investigate this poisoned centre. Are all the other teache...

    Incompetent principal sleeping on her job! ECDA and the government should mandate CCTV in all preschools!! Boycott all Kinderland! 杀一敬百
  • by Mans - 5 months ago
    Abusive acts by teacher(s) are unchecked by management especially the centre principal. Also claims to not have CCTVs installed within the premises. Parents should be wary about Kinderland’s staff and student management. Highly not recommended.
  • by MH - 5 months ago
    A great place for your child to experience abuse and PoW type of forced drinking torture. Send your child to this centre and they will hate school for the rest of their lives.. To parents who are already sending their children to the centre, it is time to withdraw them and find a new centre..
  • by NNA - 5 months ago
    Genuinely disappointed with the bahaviour of a teacher that surfaced in the news on 28 aug 2023. I am a mother of an infant who did consider this school for my child initially, but will never consider again. Having made enquiries before, I can assure you the fees for infant care at kinderland is not...

    Don't send your child there if you love them, even if they don't get tortured, watching other kids get tortured will leave a lasting dark episode that would scar their lives
  • by maya - 5 months ago
    You need to educate and make sure your teachers are not abusing the innocent kids in your childcare.If any of the teachers doesnt have the criteria to take care,have empathy or simply have patience,pls do not hire them.The teachers should be kind and not being rough to the kids.
  • by Ex-Parent - 10 months ago
    Turnover rate very high. The good teachers have left. From what I heard, their management is horrible, they don’t treat the staff well.

    The one special thing that makes me feel really comfortable about Kinderland @ Siglap is the interaction style the school has adopted. Teachers remember every student’s name. Even students from different levels know each another’s name, revealing the intimacy between students and their Teachers. Eve...

    Initially I had a hard time trying to teach Jayden mandarin. Then his attitude suddenly changed, and every weekend he loves practising his 听写, and sounding his 汉语拼音. He related to me that it’s due to the fun he had in his mandarin lessons. Teng 老师made the lessons interactive and fun. I was w...

    My elder child had severe eczema, sensitive skin and sensitive airways.
