Caring, Exploring, Fun.

Small yet established

Rain Trees, established here in Singapore in 1999, is an independent, international kindergarten, nursery & preschool that provides a fun, friendly and challenging environment for children in the age range of 18 months to 6 years old. Our parents and children are mainly from the international community in Singapore.

Our education philosophy is based on the UK National Curriculum ( EYFS) and our children learn through a ‘hands – on’ play-based approach through which they gain a solid foundation of pre-school skills in preparation for Primary School. We are registered under the Ministry of Education (MOE) as a Foreign System Kindergarten.

We pride ourselves on providing a homely and nurturing environment – where your child will feel safe and happy and enjoy their first experience of school.

Testimonials

Happy Kids, Happy Parents


Rain Trees is a wonderful kindergarten where children are cared for in a very nurturing learning environment and I have seen my son flourish as a result.

We couldn’t have been luckier in choosing this school for our twin boys. They settled in from the moment they walked into the classroom!

Rain Trees Kindergarten was the highlight of our 6 year stay in Singapore as Australian Expats. Tina Lim has touched the lives of all three of our children – she is one of those inspirational people you strive to have in your children’s lives. We were attracted to Rain Trees due to the intimate nurturing environment and during our time there have seen how seamlessly they adapt to the individual’s needs. Its play based pedagogy comes alive in a positive, affirming environment in which not only the students but indeed the parents and siblings all become part of the Rain Trees family. I firmly believe that our relationship with Rain Trees and Tina has given our children the best foundation in schooling and Tina has continued to share in our children’s successes and happiness in life. We chose to extend our first born’s time in Rain Trees and in fact he continued to return as a big brother helper when his brother went through school at Rain Tress. The love and concern our second child was bathed in during his chronic illness epitomises the generosity of the teachers and the living heart within this school. It is truly a celebration of early learning at its best.

From Day One, my daughter came home and recited stories and songs that she’d learned during the day. When I left her in the morning, she smiled and when I returned in the afternoon, I got a huge happy hug. Rain Trees is a happy secure environment and was a great introduction to ‘school’ for my daughter.

Rain Trees is an amazing, inclusive place and a wonderful fit to our preferred approach of learning balanced with play time.  Our daughter really thrives at Rain Trees and the teachers do a phenomenal job encouraging her development.  We also really like the parents community and how we connect through our children and the various activities the school organises throughout the year.

I have the teachers and the lovely homely environment to thank for helping Chang to gain his confidence and happiness. He speaks significantly more now and clearer too. Thank you!!

Both my son and daughter attended Rain Trees and it was their first school experience since we moved to Singapore. They both enjoyed Rain Trees tremendously and I would not hesitate to recommend Rain Trees to others.

My daughter has loved her time at Raintrees and I have been one very happy mummy knowing she is in such capable hands. We are going to miss all the staff very much and we thank you for being such a great start to Abi’s early years education.

Rain Trees has been a wonderful, nurturing home from home, for my son since the age of 18 months.
We originally started in the playgroup and I knew straight away that this would be my sons first school.
We loved being welcomed with a big smile at the gate every morning by the school staff and as a
parent I have made some lovely friends thanks to the social nature of the school. I have watched my
son thrive and I am constantly amazed by some of the things he comes out with after a morning in
class! Thank you Rain Trees we will miss you all terribly.

Rain Trees is a delightful children orientated nursery with a caring ‘village feel’ to it. All the teaching staff are so welcoming, enthusiastic  and happy and go out of their way to help in any way they can. Classrooms are bright and fun with a variety of learning material and toys on offer. We could not have wished for a better start for our Son.
