Playgroup programmes for children 18 months and up

Our programmes for children of playgroup age in Singapore are designed to lay solid foundations for their holistic development.
With both half-day and full-day programmes available at 43 centres island-wide, we cater to different families’ needs for children aged 18 months to 3 years old.

In Star Learners’ playgroup programmes, we harness the power of stories with award-winning literature and children’s books to immerse every child in rich learning experiences. We also focus on helping children build important foundational knowledge and skills with our proprietary Starbeam™ framework.

We keep to the teacher-child ratio guidelines set by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) to ensure more opportunities for meaningful teacher-child interaction.

What families say about Star Learners

All four of my children have enjoyed and are still enjoying their time at Star Learners. I see them grow and develop into creative and confident individuals every day and it assures me that I have made the right preschool choice.

Larry LimParent of Star Learners, Simei

Teacher Loo, Teacher Sherien and Teacher Florence also give feedback on our daughter’s behaviour whenever we pick her up from school. As a parent, I appreciate these comments because these only show how concerned they are of her well-being and development.
We are very grateful for the teachers' dedication in shaping the future for our daughter and all the other children. Thank you so much for being caring and encouraging.

GwendilynParent of Star Learners, Bedok

My son joined Star Learners in 2020 and had difficulties in understanding English. Under the guidance of his teachers, he was able to communicate in English in just a few months. As a new mother in Singapore, I am very happy and appreciative of the support and effort by the team at Yio Chu Kang.

Since my daughter's first day at Star Learners, she has become more confident in speaking up, shown more enthusiasm for physical activities and is happy to go to school every day.
