A Global-Minded School with a Totful (Thoughtful) Heart”

Global Tots offers a truly holistic programme to children, offering the advantages of a well-rounded preschool education.


Global Tots Preschool is on a mission to ignite the potential within each child. With this mission in mind, Global Tots operates five preschools across Singapore, offering integrated, holistic programmes for children aged two months to 6 years old. Nestled opposite the bustling Holland Village enclave, their flagship campus at Jalan Hitam Manis sets the stage for adventure and discovery. The other four campuses are strategically located across the island at Braddell, Sembawang, Eastgate, and Mountbatten.


Holistic Education

Global Tots adopts a Thematic Integrated Programme with a holistically designed curriculum emphasising six learning areas: Language & Literacy, Numeracy, Aesthetics & Creative Expression, Naturalistic, Motor skills, and Moral education.

The preschool’s P1 Readiness programme ensures that the children gain the necessary language and numeracy skills to make a smooth transition to Local Primary or International Schools. Children are extensively exposed to early reading programmes, Phonics, and Mathematics to boost their confidence. The preschool inculcates the love and appreciation for Mandarin through a robust Bilingual Immersion Programme wherein Chinese is weaved naturally into the daily lessons.

The preschool adopts a Project-based approach to build on children’s innate sense of curiosity and exploration, thereby motivating them to analyze, reflect, and solve problems independently. Children are inspired to put conceptual learning into practice through a plethora of hands-on activities, story-telling sessions, songs and games, science experiments, cooking, and art jamming sessions. The teachers present key concepts using diverse and innovative methods such as role play and via AR technologies to enable visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners to understand better.

Integral to Global Tots’ comprehensive curriculum is its dedication to moral education. The preschool places a strong emphasis on children’s character development by instilling values such as gratitude, respect, perseverance, and teamwork.

Global Tots Preschools boast abundant outdoor spaces where children can connect with nature and have fun experiences with their peers. Through meaningful outdoor play, children utilize all their senses, fostering wholesome experiences beyond the confines of the classroom. The preschool’s outdoor area is well equipped with a traffic park, a trampoline pad, playgrounds, and a water-play station filled with assorted equipment for kids to frolic around and, well, be kids! Additionally, the school organizes field trips and excursions every term for children to reinforce classroom concepts in an enjoyable manner.

Prior to the pandemic, the school organized educational events such as Sentosa Kidz Flea, School Carnival, K2 – Dare to Soar Appreciation Night, Art Exhibition, Xmas’ Flea Market, and Overnight Camp. During the pandemic, they improvised – continuing to provide educational events such as Primary School Visit, Alumni Sharing to K2 Graduands, ‘Animal’ Workshop to the children – via Zoom.

Nurturing Environment

At Global Tots, ensuring the safety and well-being of every child is paramount. The preschool is committed to creating a cozy, welcoming, and nurturing environment. It’s all about giving children a comfortable home-away-from-home experience that enhances their learning journey and fills their days with joy.

Teachers are undeniably the pillars of a school, and at Global Tots, the well-qualified and passionate teachers are amply supported by senior staff members in their role as nurturers and educators. The preschool invests in continually developing the skill sets of the teachers so they, in turn, can nurture the children better and prepare them for the future. Global Tots also keeps a low student-teacher ratio to ensure personalized attention for the children.

Global Tots Preschool actively encourages parental involvement in the child’s learning journey to foster strong home-school partnerships. The preschool regularly communicates with the parents about their child’s development and invites them to participate in school events. Additionally, they encourage collaboration through take-home projects and home-based learning activities, ensuring that parents play an integral role in their child’s educational experience.

Guided by their core values of Virtue, Innovate, Tenacity, Achievement, and Loving – enshrined in the acronym VITAL; Global Tots Preschool brings together a warm and nurturing environment strengthened by family partnerships and the guidance of dedicated teachers. Its synergy of academics, moral guidance, and experiential learning offers the best possible holistic programme for young pre-schoolers.


Take a look at the testimonials from happy parents of Global Tots students.

“We sent our only daughter Shanaya to Global Tots@ Mountbatten when she was 21 months old and like every Parent, we were unsure of how she would cope with “School” at such a tender age. All our concerns disappeared soon when she took such a liking to school that on weekends, she was disappointed that the school was closed. Also, her learning, manners, language skills and ability to interact with others improved remarkably and we had no hesitation in putting her in full day in less than 6 months of her starting out. Global Tots has been a blessing and almost like an extended home for us where all the teachers and staff are extremely gentle and very meticulous in their approach to making the experience for your child a wonderful one. Thank you Global Tots.”

– Mr & Mrs Agarwal (Parents of Shanaya)

“Warm thank you to Global Tots for making school such a great place for our two boys Arthur (3.5 years) and Baptiste (0.5 year). Both brothers are having a lot of fun while learning across all fields. School activities are always educative, recreational and well designed, enabling our children to develop their potential with enthusiasm and confidence. Special thanks to the friendly team of dedicated and caring teachers, staffs and management! We are very satisfied and can only recommend parents to entrust Global Tots with the care of their little loved ones!”
