Singapore’s First Play based Preschool
Shaws Preschool was conceived with a clear objective in mind—to provide a different type of preschool education in Singapore. One which no longer had boring lessons or top down teaching. That was why we established the first preschool in Singapore that emphasised play as a learning experience.
Our lessons are carefully planned to encourage your children to express themselves, work as a team, explore topics and most importantly have fun! Your child will be well prepared for later schooling—and life—with the care of our dedicated, trained and professional staff.
1989 | Where It All Began
Shaws Preschool was established 30 years ago by our founder Lucy Shaw.
Our preschool flourished because we offered something different compared to the traditional, strictly academic model. We were one of the first play based preschools which emphasised on using purposeful play to teach children.
2017 | Expanding Influence
In 2017, we opened our Shaws Lorong Chuan Campus expanding in the Serangoon neighbourhood. Together with Braddell Heights Campus and our East Coast schools, we have helped to grow and nurture over 15’500 children.
Shaws was the first preschool to include sports and outdoor play as integral and regular components of the curriculum. Today, the Shaws Preschool curriculum includes sports coaching twice a week conducted by coaches from Shaws Little League.
