Amazing Star Montessori House blends a well-established Montessori curriculum with
traditional preparatory curriculum, where children are exposed only to purposeful work.
Amazing Star Montessori House builds the foundation for lifelong learning in an enriched
environment where children can thrive. Besides preparing each child academically, they are also
prepared to be self-confident, independent and responsible. Multimedia-integrated lessons are
specifically developed to a child’s natural curiosity and interests, and present skills and concepts
like literacy, numeracy, music and art in engaging and interactive ways. To enhance their general
knowledge, each term is supplemented with an interesting theme like fruits, transportation or
the underwater world. These themes are integrated into hands-on, interactive lessons and
activities, all of which culminate into an outdoor excursion to a related destination at the end
of the term.

Chiltern House Preschool strives to create the nurturing qualities of home – warmth, security
and love, offering full childcare services within a comprehensive preschool curriculum.
The Chiltern House Programme has been specially designed to provide the ideal environment for
early childhood learning – secure, happy, and dynamic. Through a carefully structured curriculum,
Chiltern House Preschool nurtures a growing independence, and encourages positive self-esteem
through a child’s early learning years, motivating him to develop the skills to succeed in his formal
education. Classes are conducted in creative and engaging ways, with a low teacher to student ratio.
Children with differing learning styles are given the individual attention they need. A bilingual
foundation in Mandarin through daily lessons builds fluency and a love of the language and culture.
The Julia Gabriel Centre Speech and Drama lessons, within the Chiltern House programme, help to
groom children into effective and eloquent communicators, ensuring they have the confidence and
enthusiasm to face all that the future holds for them.

Kindergarten allows children the freedom to explore, experiment and make choices through
carefully supervised work-play. This way, classes are more interesting and learning can be maximised
through fun interactions. The Early Science programme uses the same hands-on approach to
introduce children to live sciences; think interesting experiments like the disecting of small animals,
all in the name of learning. When it comes to mathematics, Block Play is the perfect way to stimulate
young minds through the real life examples of geometric shapes and solids. The class also allows for
social and emotional interactions among peers. Other hands-on programmes to consider include
Music and Movement, Cooking, Water, Sand and Outdoor Play.

learn something new from their lessons every day and will pick up the skills of observation,
exploration, and even independence of thinking. Here, children are given the freedom to explore
their individual strengths and abilities under proper guidance of the teachers. Each child will emerge
confident with expressing themselves creatively; adept with the basics of language, numbers, and
problem solving; co-ordinated and actively developing his/her motor skills; more self-aware with a
sense of community and love for environment; and with a passion for learning. Programmes

curious about their surroundings. Skills in language, literacy and math concepts are developed and

Preschool for Multiple Intelligences is a premium bilingual international preschool for children
between 18 months to six years, where learning is experiential, meaningful and applicable in real life.
PMI gently nurtures children’s innate multiple intelligences to lay the foundation in developing their
potential. When the eight intelligences – logical-mathematical, linguistic, spatial, musical,
interpersonal, intrapersonal, bodily kinesthetic, and naturalistic – are nurtured, the child blossoms
into an individual that is more creative, confident, daring to explore new things, and curious about
their surroundings. At PMI, they identify each child’s strength and help him or her develop it deeper
while at the same time raise his or her level of functioning across all other intelligences. Through
PMI’s multi-faceted curriculum, parents may observe our children engaged in: Breeding frogs from
tadpoles and documenting with words and drawings; creating imaginatively from blocks and
recycled material; making art with paint, crayons, pebbles, sand, ribbons, straws, flowers and
leaves; dramatising, singing, dancing, making music or going on a field trip to the mangroves to study
the mudskippers. Intelligence is neutral and can be used with good or bad intent. With PMI’s values
of love and compassion, independence and initiative, responsibility, respect and honesty children
learn good values to guide good behaviour.
