PRE-SCHOOL

Merlion Preschool aims to stimulate the development of the child as a whole person, by maintaining a healthy balance of activities across all four developmental areas, namely physical, intellectual, emotional and social. Our mission is to awaken the child’s curiosity and the natural eagerness to learn and discover, producing adults who are confident, self-directed, active contributors, and concerned citizens who are rooted to Indonesia but are globally competent and competitive.

We strive to preserve the gifts of childhood while preparing children to meet life with joy, enthusiasm and confidence.  We encourage children to satisfy their natural curiosity and promote immersion into lifelong learning and discovery.

With genuine love and commitment, our teachers and staff model the behaviour we wish to foster in the children – kindness, compassion, hard-work, confidence and respect.

OUR

CURRICULUM

Merlion Preschool’s curriculum is modelled on the Nurturing Early Learner, a curriculum framework for Kindergartens in Singapore and conforms to the highest international standards.

It covers six learning areas, which are taught in both English and Mandarin. These are: Aesthetics and Creative Expression, Discovery of the World, Language and Literacy, Motor Skills Development, Numeracy, and Social and Emotional Development. Merlion School also includes Information and Communications Technology as an additional learning area.

The curriculum aims to develop vocabulary through songs and rhymes with a focus on promoting the social and emotional well-being of the children.

We strongly believe that Integrated Learning experiences help children make meaningful connections across learning areas and enable them to understand how knowledge and skills are linked.

Lessons are integrated to facilitate language acquisition, Math perspectives, simple scientific exploration, art and craft work, music and movement activities, and motor skills development.

Parents Testimonial

Merlion School provides outstanding early childhood education to my children. The school’s curriculum is filled with interesting lessons and fun activities which prepare my children for Primary School. My children love their teachers because they are awesome. They give nurturing and individual attention to them. I see my children having fun learning new languages, reading, counting, singing and other skills. Keep up the good work Merlion Preschool!

Parents Testimonial

Both of my children have been studying in Merlion School for the past 10 years. When my daughter Anabel first went to Preschool, she was very fussy. Fortunately, the teachers were very caring and understanding towards her, so I felt safe and relieved.
I am very grateful that Merlion School is supportive of my children’s interests through their Scholarship Programme. In addition to its good academic curriculum, Merlion School also has many extra-curricular activities. The school trains and encourages students to participate in competitions; both in school and outside school. My children have had a chance to compete in Thailand and Vietnam, as well as in Yale University.
