Welcome to Rain Trees

Rain Trees International Kindergarten & preschool in Singapore

A kindergarten & preschool for the international community in Singapore

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 believe we have created 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 was established in 1999 (as Lock Road Kindergarten) and is now conveniently located in the Bukit Timah area on Kheam Hock Road between Adam Road & Stevens Road. We have a wonderful preschool environment for our children with a spacious and secure integrated indoor/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.

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. I really can't say enough about the lovely lovely, dedicated team of professionals at Rain Trees. They far exceeded my expectations. They're like family.
