Introduction

Rain Tree Montessori Childcare Centre follows Dr Maria Montessori’s approach to teaching preschoolers.  Our school adopts the pedagogical nature of Montessori materials with an infusion of the best philosophical aspects of Dr Maria Montessori, to further children’s development in a holistic manner.  We are also doing our utmost possible to provide the best services to a diverse group of parents.

Though Rain Tree Montessori educational approach is predominantly Montessori, we also embrace both the Early Years Developmental Framework (EYDF) and Nurturing Early Learners Framework (NEL) which set out by the Early Child Development Agency (ECDA) and Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) into our curriculum.
