Chiltern House fosters confidence, collaboration, creativity and other qualities and values in preschoolers, and empowers them with learning and life skills.
When it comes to your children, the 4 “Cs” are important. You believe in raising them to be confident, curious, creative and compassionate – qualities that will go a long way towards helping them become successful when they’re older.
Chiltern House develops preschoolers to be well-rounded individuals who are not just ready for primary school, but for their later years too. Founded in 1994 by early childhood educator Julia Gabriel, the school was named in honour of Julia’s parents’ house in England. Julia believed that the nurturing qualities of family and home were essential in a preschool.
Since its establishment, Chiltern House has put thousands of young children on the path to success, inspiring them to explore, discover, work with others and become more aware of their strengths.
A comprehensive curriculum that prepares kids for the future
Chiltern House is SPARK-certified and offers both full-day and half-day programmes for Pre-Nursery to Kindergarten Two. The comprehensive curriculum provides learning opportunities in both English and Mandarin – the Pre-Nursery and Nursery One programmes are bilingual while the Nursery Two to Kindergarten Two children enjoy a specialist Mandarin educator for an hour a day (half-day programme) and further Mandarin exposure in the full-day programme.
The curriculum, which also covers Mathematics, Language and Literacy, Art and Craft, exploration of a termly theme, Speech and Drama, Music and Movement, Physical Education and Mindfulness, is designed to encourage preschoolers to question, to think and to express themselves confidently and creatively.
In addition, Chiltern House conducts focused field trips and provides opportunities for the children to visit the theatre and participate in Young Performers Certificate accreditation through Trinity College London. It also offers a renowned Learning Support programme for children who may need additional help.
Mindful educators make a positive difference
EduDrama® is at the heart of the Chiltern House curriculum. This teaching philosophy centres around the idea that a mindful educator, who creates an enabling environment that includes positive communication, positive discipline and positive relationships, will lead to the very best possible outcomes for the learner.
Chiltern House educators are experienced, have a genuine love for children and undergo regular training and skill upgrades. The classroom teachers work closely with the school’s specialist teachers of Music, Speech and Drama, Learning Support and Mandarin to ensure that every child is given valuable educational experiences.
It’s not just the educators who are mindful. They also bring mindfulness practices to the classrooms, teaching their children how to be aware of the present, and focusing on their strengths through discussions and activities around such topics as gratitude, kindness and respect.
Chiltern House has five centres in Singapore, including East Coast, Mountbatten Road, Forum, Thomson and Turf Club Road. To find out more, visit www.chilternhouse.com.sg.
