International Kindergarten and Preschool

Chatsworth provides a positive, affirming and stimulating environment where our kindergarten learners begin their journey of discovery and learning.

International Kindergarten K1 and K2 (3 to 5 years old)

We know the search for your child’s first school is not an easy one in Singapore and it's especially so if you are an expat family. The early years of a child's education are vital to their future success, setting foundations academically as well as personally and socially. For that reason, Chatsworth strives to provide a nurturing environment where our youngest learners can explore, discover and grow into happy and confident individuals.

Our preschool introduces your child to international kindergarten education through a quality curriculum tailored for preschoolers aged 3 to 5. The Early Childhood Centre is a safe and secure space that blends indoor and outdoor spaces to encourage creative and play-based area. The customised play area includes a playground, a sandpit, a water play space, a bike track, etc.

The Curriculum

At Chatsworth, the Kindergarten curriculum is drawn from the internationally recognised IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), which is designed for preschoolers and students, aged 3 to 11. An international ‘best practice’ educational framework, the IB PYP stimulates and nurtures students’ sense of curiosity and imagination through an inquiry and play-based approach in school. Our Kindergarten classrooms in Singapore are carefully designed and richly resourced to enrich learning opportunities for students.

Communication and Parent Involvement

Communication with parents is an integral part of our kindergarten and preschool programmes at Chatsworth. Our early childhood teachers communicate with parents weekly via email, and the school shares important information relating to school and programmes through electronic letters and newsletters.

The school leverages a leading online platform for IB international schools and a digital portfolio platform to document and inform parents about their child’s learning and progress. Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences (PTSCs) are held twice a year, with detailed reports being issued.

In addition to planned parent participatory sessions throughout the year, we encourage parents to get involved in their child’s pre-primary education at school by visiting the classroom to assist with activities or lessons, watching performances or helping with field trips. Our ‘open-door’ policy provides parents the opportunity to meet with teachers at mutually convenient times to discuss their child’s progress in preschool.
