Welcome to Rain Trees

Rain Trees International Kindergarten & preschool in Singapore

A kindergarten & preschool for the international community in Singapore that was established in 1999.

Rain Trees is an international kindergarten & preschool that provides a caring, fun & friendly environment for children mainly from the international community in Singapore aged between 2 and 6 years.

We have a warm, inviting and well-equipped environment where your child can happily play and learn at his/her own pace. As parents you are your child’s first and probably most important teacher and as such are aware of the value of play.

At Rain Trees we aim to provide a creative environment, which is both stimulating and challenging. Children learn best through doing and we give ample opportunities to explore, experiment and discover with hands-on equipment and materials in an adult directed setting.

Rain Trees Kindergarten is a small kindergarten that offers a “home-from-home” environment that is ideal for the first preschool experience of your child as well as preparing him/her for an international primary school. We have a spacious and secure integrated indoor-to-outdoor setting.

It is a great privilege to be entrusted with the education and care of your child. It is a responsibility we take seriously and we are committed to providing a great start to their school life.

The best way to find out more about the school is to browse the site and then decide whether you would like to arrange a visit to the school to find out more.

As an expat, going on someone else's recommendation, I could not have made a better decision for my child and his introduction to schooling and education.
