International Kindergarten in Singapore - A Snapshot

The Singapore education system has an expedient approach. Formal school education in Singapore begins from the Primary School years starting at age 7. However, the majority of children attend preschool in private international schools as pre primary education is not mandated by the government. Preschool education in Singapore comprises two broad sectors, the child care sector managed by Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) and Kindergartens registered under the MOE.

Kindergarten is a fun way for kids to learn before starting school. They play, sing, draw, and make friends, helping them transition from home to school.
