PRESCHOOLS

Dulwich College (Singapore)

Emily and Ben Shaw, British Alexa (5) Samuel (2)

Alexa has attended the school since the day it opened in August 2014, and Samuel started in the Toddlers class in August 2015. My experience has been fantastic; both children can’t wait to arrive in the morning, and they run in smiling every day. The dual language approach in ‘Ducks’ is a great opportunity. They are immersed in the Mandarin language all day and within weeks Samuel was confidently responding to his Chinese teacher. There is a lovely sense of Dulwich community among the parents and teachers, and also between the different Dulwich schools internationally. I heard that Dulwich College was building a school in Singapore through a friend already living here. I decided to enrol my children, first and foremost due to the reputation of the Dulwich brand and Dulwich London; secondly, because the school follows a British-based curriculum but within an international environment with children from over 40 nationalities; and finally, because it was a new school with fantastic

facilities, and all new staff who were passionate and excited about creating a great new international school. I would absolutely recommend Dulwich. The highlight of the school for me is that, in addition to having great teachers, fantastic facilities, hundreds of extracurricular activities and a very strong academic programme, it places utmost importance on turning out polite, respectful students who care about each other and their environment. Everything they are taught in the Early Years programme is based around eight guiding statements all reflecting respect for others, caring about their world, having friends from many different places, growing together and so on. My children are thriving at Dulwich and I am constantly amazed at the variety of knowledge that they are acquiring on a daily basis.
