Repton Schoolhouse Singapore
It’s said that from birth to the age of 8, the mind of a child is like a sponge, soaking up a wealth of knowledge from the world around them. Everything from the environment they’re in and how they play, to their daily interactions with people works to shape their cognitive, mental, social and physical development. That’s why getting the best education in their formative years is so vital.
If your little bub is well on his or her way to walking, now’s the time to start planning. The highly prestigious British pre-school, Repton Schoolhouse Singapore, recently opened its doors for their inaugural open house over on Alexandra Road. Even if you missed it, here’s why you should have them on your preschool radar

The best of British and Singaporean education
Repton Schoolhouse Singapore marries the best of British and Singaporean programmes and traditions to create an environment that prioritises both academic achievement and character development.
The entire school of approximately 6,000 square feet is architect designed and houses multiple open play and learning areas and 6 large classrooms purposefully built to facilitate different types of learning including the use of technology.
Based on the Nurturing Early Learners framework developed by the Ministry of Education and supported by the UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage framework, their well-rounded curriculum encompasses Science, Technology, the Arts and Sports and incorporates them into everyday learning.
High literacy, numeracy, and Chinese standards
If you’ve ever read one of Roald Dahl’s timeless children’s books, you’ll know the man is a literary genius. What’s more? The legend is also a Repton School alumni. He attended Repton School in South Derbyshire for 4 years from the age of 13 and even has a section in his autobiography “Boy” where he details his fondness for the school.
As the pre-school arm of Repton, you can expect the same excellent literary standards at Repton Schoolhouse Singapore.
Their Language Arts classes are designed to instil a love of literature in each child; teach them to express themselves effectively; and help them develop life-long habits of reading, writing and working independently. The use of interactive programmes, games and storytelling sessions also help to inspire imagination and creativity.
Repton takes a balanced approach to the children’s development through both structured learning and inquiry learning nurturing each child in developing not only their skills but also in becoming effective, enthusiastic learners.
There’s no need to fret about your child’s mother tongue development taking a back seat either; Repton Schoolhouse Singapore will be the first Repton school to offer a bilingual learning environment.
With a lead English teacher and a lead Chinese teacher in every classroom as well and two teacher assistants, the school days are filled with opportunities for the children to master their proficiency in both languages.
The Repton curriculum covers the Seven Spheres of Learning. In addition to English and Chinese Language, the curriculum covers mathematical thinking, fine and gross motor skills acquisition, art and culture, inquiry learning and personal and social development.
Classroom-wide morning meetings and communal meals with teachers help to teach responsible decision making and let children practice their social-emotional skills.
