Meet The Principal

Joyce Teo

Vice Principal

Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Care and Education

The Early Childhood scene is always evolving yet some things remain the same. Joyce believes in moving with the times and staying up to date to benefit the children in their formative years, yet stands firm in her belief that character building and instilling good values in children from a young age should remain unchanged. She counts it all joy to be in the position of an educator to model and impart these skills to the little ones.

What Sets our Preschool in Clementi Road Apart

The Little Skool-House preschool in Clementi is located at the National University of Singapore, a major tertiary institution in Singapore. With a high value placed on the importance of both academics and fun activities, our award-winning educators aim to nurture your child’s mind through activities that foster healthy social and emotional development. Our centre features well-equipped classrooms and an outdoor playground that encourages exploration and the development of motor skills.

Awarded the Spark certification and the Healthy Pre-Schools (HPS) Accreditation, our kindergarten at NUS abodes by the school health promotion practices recommended by the Health Promotion Board in Singapore. The Spark certification is also a testament to the emphasis we place on updating the education landscape to keep up with the changing educational trends and pedagogies.

Being the chosen preschool by top institutions, the Little Skool-House campus at NUS is the preferred preschool for employees of our workplace centre partner in Clementi Road. Established to provide working parents childcare services during working hours, our POP workplace centre is a convenient option for parents working at NUS.

We run full-day programmes for preschoolers, and couple our comprehensive curriculums with Pedagogy for Enhanced Mandarin Acquisition programmes, which has led to 93% of Little Skool-House preschoolers being Highly Proficient in both English and Mandarin.

FAQs

When should I apply for my child’s enrolment? Is there a fixed period for registration?

What are the school hours?

What is the difference between Little Skool-House centres that are under the Partner Operator (POP) scheme and those that aren’t?

At Little Skool-House, we have a network of centres, with 14 centres operating under the Partner Operator (POP) scheme governed by ECDA. This initiative aims to enhance accessibility, affordability, and quality of childcare services for working parents.

Besides our consistent core curriculum and teaching approach, our 6 non-POP centres offer supplementary enriching programmes such as music, sports, and our exclusive REACH (Read Chinese at Home) programme. The REACH programme provides weekly take-home books and accompanying audio guides for learning support at home, empowering parents to be more involved in their child’s education. These centres also boast superior facilities for a comfortable and stimulating environment. Parents are also able to chat real-time with our teachers and be updated on their child’s progress via our Parent App. Additionally, these centres maintain a lower teacher-child ratio for more individualised attention.

Is there a school bus service for this centre?

No, but there is an internal NUS shuttle bus service that drops off near our centre.
