Are you preparing your preschooler with the skills and mindsets necessary to thrive in the 21st century?
What factors should parents consider when deciding the preschool to send their children to for that very first taste of formal education in life?
At Methodist Preschool, our curriculum and education approach are driven by our distinctive outcome of nurturing every child to be a person of Good Character with future-ready mindsets of an Explorer, an Innovator and an Entrepreneur. We develop Explorers with attributes of curiosity, courage and adventure-seeking; Innovators with attributes of inventiveness, reflectiveness and resilience; and Entrepreneurs with attributes of perseverance, resilience, risk-taking, sense of responsibility and good communication skills.

Character-First: the Heart of Education
Methodist education in Singapore dates back to 1885 when the first Anglo-Chinese School (ACS) was established. Methodist Preschool is part of the Methodist family of schools with a century-old tradition of providing quality education in Singapore. Rooted on our founder, John Wesley’s belief that “the heart of education is the education of the heart”, character development lays a critical foundation of holistic development grounded on our core values of Love, Respect, Courage, Thanksgiving and Passion for Learning.
Within a caring and nurturing learning environment where every child feels loved, valued and secure to learn joyfully and confidently, our dedicated team of educators are well-trained to adopt age-appropriate play-based, inquiry-based and project-based education approach to stimulate children’s affinity to curiosity, exploration, discovery and creativity.
Our guiding principle is always to make children’s learning effective and enjoyable so that they learn joyfully and confidently, gaining a head start in school readiness and lifelong learning. We are passionate about enabling every child to reach his/ her potential and to be future-ready, with the mindsets of an Explorer, an Innovator and an Entrepreneur.
