With a strong belief that quality preschool should be accessible and affordable to everyone, Da Little Group started the Da Little Preschool arm after the wonderful support from parents and success of the art enrichment programmes that have been offered over the years at Da Little Arts School.
Through our team of dedicated educators, we aim to provide each child with a happy and positive experience, one that inspires a lifelong love of learning with quality education and foster creativity to the early years without a hefty price tag attached to it.
We are committed to a school that is welcoming, stimulating and lively, all while focusing on the goals of education, creativity, and developing young minds through the integration of arts into our curriculum.
Da Little Preschool at Cecil is located at 141 Cecil Street #01-01 Tung Ann Association Building, Singapore 069541.
What Sets Us Apart?
Our teachers are empowered to plan activities that can be thoughtfully integrated into their teachings and to provide opportunities for children to be constructors of knowledge.
Our Preschool and Enrichment curriculum are all specially written in-house to enhance learning through purposeful play.
Our teacher-children ratio are kept lower than recommended to ensure good quality and effective interaction with children in class. Along with self-help skills during their daily activities, children develop independence in these as they mature to be ready for Primary school.
Children develop independence to equip themselves to be ready for formal school.
Promotes Healthy Living
Accredited with the PLATINUM tier for Healthy Eating under Health Promotion Board. Children get to enjoy healthy meals during breakfast, lunch and dinner by our in-house cook using healthier ingredients. Physical activity lesson plans are also integrated in our curriculum.
Our Parents, Our Partners
We value the importance of having both teachers and parents partnering together to allow effective channels of communication between home and school for information to be shared and make provisions and plans for each child as the need arises.
1. Open and Regular Communication
Regular and open communications are fundamental in building trust with our parents.
2. Parents' Participation
Our parents, even grandparents, are encouraged where possible to participate and be involved in their child’s learning journeys with us.
