The program provides an engaging and fun learning environment focused on nurturing the physical, social-emotional and intellectual capacity of the child through activities to promote positive self-esteem, interactive learning, curiosity and creativity.

BBS Pre-school Philosophy

BBS Pre-school philosophy is based on the belief that young children learn best through interactive play activities. Therefore, learning is made as fun as possible while retaining the rigorous cross-disciplinary academic framework provided by the Singapore curriculum. BBS Pre-school combines the best of both worlds to make sure that preschoolers attain all the vital competencies vital to their social, emotional and intellectual development, and at the same time have lots of fun in their learning journey with BBS.

In summary, BBS preschool believes that:

  1. Every child is important
  2. Every child is different
  3. Every child needs to feel safe
  4. Every child wants to learn
  5. Every child needs to develop positive self-esteem
  6. Every child`s welfare and needs are paramount
  7. Every child needs to have a sense of success

Safety & Security

BBS takes the security and safety of your child very seriously. Therefore, the facility is equipped with a modern security control system and an electronic access control system to ensure that entry into pre-school is restricted to authorised personnel. We also make sure that no child will be signed out or released from the preschool except to you, or a person authorised by you.

Parental Involvement

We believe that parents should be involved with the child`s school achievement and we are therefore always happy to meet you to discuss your child's development and progress.

If you would like to get a first-hand glimpse of how the BBS preschool is run, or if you wish to enroll your child for a free trial, please call our respective campuses for a booking. We sincerely hope that you and your child will enjoy your time with us.
