Montessori School in Singapore

GIIS is the best primary school in Singapore offering the Global Montessori Plus Programme. It is an award-winning programme that offers a blend of the world renowned Maria Montessori approach to pre-school methodology with the best practices of modern education.

Pioneered by GIIS, this is the only international pre-school curriculum of its kind, and rests on five solid pillars that will give our pre-schoolers a strong foundation in their student life.

Through its targeted programming, the GMP not only fosters development of cognitive, expressive and motor skills, but also induces a sense of social responsibility, cultural awareness and environmental consciousness - all key components of GIIS’ GMP Montessori School's holistic pedagogy in Singapore.

The 5 Pillars of GMP

Our GMP stands tall on 5 strong pillars.


'Excelerate' Programme

Accelerating basic literacy skills with special emphasis on excellence is what our 'Excelerate' Programme is all about. GIIS is a leading preschool for Montessori education in Singapore where our emphasis lies in giving students fluency in language through listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, as well as providing numeracy skills through maths in a fun and interesting manner. Our individualistic focus has resulted in our students being fast and eager learners from a young age.

Montessori Multi-faceted Learning

Multi-faceted Learning

We recognise that every child is different. The Thematic Learning methodology we promote at our international pre-school in Singapore, aims to keep the individuality of students in mind along with creating interactive activities for them at school. All these activities are aimed at nurturing the students' inherent personalities as well as helping their intellectual capacities grow in a steady manner. Such a holistic approach helps in the all-round development of our students.

iPlay Programme

Play is an essential part & parcel of learning at the kindergarten level - for physical, social-emotional and cognitive student development. GIIS is an international pre-school that creates the right environment for our students to interact and learn. We give them the choice of what to play, how to play and whom to play with under thorough learned supervision. This well-thought approach is meant to encourage students to accumulate information and assimilate it which in turn inculcates in them the skills of independence, cooperation and management.

iCare Programme

Sensitising our students towards the community and the environment is a major part of our GMP programme  at our GIIS preschool in Singapore. Through activities like gardening or charity drives, we teach students the universal values of compassion, kindness and giving. Interaction with community members and participation in bonding activities also help them understand the importance of honesty, punctuality and integrity which are strong character-building foundations for their bright future.
