< Singapore's Education System
The education system in Singapore evolves around the premise that every student has unique aptitudes and interests.  We adopt a flexible approach to allow you to develop your potential to the fullest.
Pre-School Education
Pre-School education is offered by kindergartens and childcare centres, consisting of a structured three-year programme for children aged three to six.  Registered with the Ministry of Education, kindergartens in Singapore are operated by community foundations, religious bodies, social and business organisations.  Childcare centres are licensed by the Ministry of Community Development and Sports.
Most kindergartens operate two sessions a day with each session ranging from 21/2 to 4 hours, five days a week.  The curriculum generally includes programmes in English and a second language, with the exception of foreign system or International schools which offer kindergarten programmes for children of expatriates.
Registration periods for kindergartens and childcare centres vary from centre to centre.  Most childcare centres admit students all year round subject to availability of vacancy. 
Primary Schools
A child in Singapore undergoes six years of primary education, comprising a four-year foundation stage from Primary 1 to 4 and a two-year orientation stage from Primary 5 to 6.  
At the foundation stage, the core curriculum comprising English, the Mother Tongue and Mathematics are taught, with supplementary subjects such as Music, Art & Craft, Physical Education and Social Studies.  Science is included from Primary 3.  To maximise their potential, students are streamed according to their learning ability before advancing to the orientation stage.  At the end of Primary 6, students sit for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).
Singapore's primary school curriculum has been used as a model internationally, especially its teaching methods in mathematics. Foreign students are accepted at primary schools subject to availability of vacancies.
