Camberley Pre-School was founded in 2011, offering inquiry-based preschool education combined with Chinese cultural immersion for children aged 18 months to 6 years of age in Singapore.
Our philosophy is to offer your child fun and engaging learning experiences, a safe haven that they look forward to everyday, while respecting and valuing them as unique individuals. And for parents, peace of mind comes from knowing that your child is in the best of hands. Each day promises an exciting adventure, and we make sure every child is experiencing the joys of learning.
Our team of highly qualified and committed educators strive to be worthy partners in your child’s growth journey. We believe in strong home-school partnership to deliver what is best for every child. We continuously self-assess and look to improve, and we make communication with you a paramount part of the childcare experience.
At Camberley, we imbue in children a passion for wonder and learning.

Drawing on inspiration from the Reggio Emilia Approach, Camberley is focused on building a progressive, inquiry-based programme tailored to each child's curiosity, experiences and growth. Grounded in interest-based investigations, our highly qualified educators create observational opportunities and meaningful projects while facilitating children to take ownership of their discoveries and learning. We make the most of every child's unique strength so that they can be joyful, confident and lifelong learners.
Chinese Cultural Immersion
Mandarin is a language that holds tremendous pragmatic value and even greater economic potential for the younger generation. Many Chinese families in Singapore face the challenge of getting their children to embrace the language. At Camberley, we provide an immersive bilingual and bicultural environment where children are exposed to and enthralled by the fun bits of the rich Chinese heritage and culture that we have inherited so that they are motivated to embrace the language from young. We make Chinese and Mandarin come alive here at Camberley and seek to nurture bilingual and bicultural global citizens of the future!
At Camberley, we want our children to be aware of how their actions affect the environment and those around. That is why our sustainable practices, supplemented by ecological and environmental advocacy, are infused into every bit of the curriculum. As the children work with others to explore, learn, and devise realistic courses of actions to address sustainability topics, they are interacting with others to inspire change. This builds not only self-confidence and a sense of responsibility but also leadership and persuasive capabilities from an early age.

21st Century Enrichment
At Camberley, we seek to broaden the minds of our children and to equip them with life skills that will be useful to them in their later lives. Our afternoon enrichment programmes help children develop their creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving and collaboration skills through fun and interactive activities. These programmes are included in the monthly fees and depending on campuses and year-level, could include visual arts, creative writing, food preparation, speech and drama, digital photography and programming.
Our pre-schools provide 3 quality meals a day – breakfast, lunch and tea – depending on the type of programme your child is enrolled in. We have 4 menu sets that are rotated through a calendar month. Our meals are prepared in accordance with dietary guidelines from the Early Childhood Development Agency and the Health Promotion Board of Singapore. Ours meals are also certified healthy by the Health Promotion Board of Singapore.
