BOTB – Best Quality Pre-school Curriculum
Red SchoolHouse was first opened in 2004 to serve the Thomson community with
just 20 children and a small but dedicated group of early childhood educators. As a preschool without a track record, it was challenging getting parents to entrust their young ones to the school. Less than three years after opening, the school was operating at full capacity with a waiting list.
Red SchoolHouse offers a holistic SPICE Curriculum for children between two months and six years old. Spearheaded by their Director, Mrs Rachel Ding, the SPICE Curriculum is a collaboration between a pool of local educators, as well as seasoned early childhood lecturers from various education institutes in Singapore. In the SPICE Curriculum, emphasis is given on hands-on learning through a collection of specially-designed teaching materials as children are given plenty of opportunities to develop their meta cognition, as well as open-ended and higher logic reasoning from nursery to kindergarten levels, with the main goal of nurturing joyful, successful children and preparing them for formal school education.
