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.


Happy Kids, Happy Parents

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.

A summary of the feedback is contained in this short report

2013 Parents Survey Summary

“We put our son at Rain Trees as we were looking for a small, caring and international environment for him to thrive after having not so great experience at a franchise-based pre-school. We are extremely happy about our decision as he has evolved into a confident and happy child over the course of the last few months. His vocabulary, confidence and interaction with other adults and kids has improved by leaps and bounds and we cannot thank the teacher and staff of Rain Trees enough.”

Rain Trees is a wonderfully happy place – you only have to enter the classrooms in the morning to see that the staff genuinely care for the children and that the children genuinely want to be there!

My twins have been attending Rain Trees since they were 18 months, initially in the parent accompanied group and now they rush in happily everyday with scarcely time for ‘goodbye mummy’ as they go off to explore. I have been very impressed with the personal attention the children receive, the way in which the staff know my children and how they have become much more confident and independent during their time at Rain Trees. Most importantly though, the twins love going to school and are really happy and engaged.

Joining Rain Trees has been the best decision for Tessie. It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Tessie continues to thrive in a superb learning environment and the parents are fantastic too. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of school.

Rain Trees is providing a great start to schooling for my daughter. Not only does she have new learning experiences and exposure to all sorts of exploratory play, she loves going each day.

My daughter joined Rain Trees in January and shows tremendous enthusiasm when telling me about her day at school. More importantly, my daughter feels happy going to school and she feels comfortable with the teachers and teaching assistants and that to me is a testament to the school.

“Rain Trees has been the perfect first school for our daughter, the warm welcoming atmosphere and wonderful teachers have given her the most incredible start. We can’t wait to sign up our younger daughter when she turns 18 months and we’re sure she’ll be just as happy!”

“My son attended Rain Trees for almost two years before he left to join his older brother at an International school. As soon as we arrived in Singapore Gus and I attended the Mum and Toddler group and then once he was older enough Gus joined the Kindergarten. For myself and Gus moving from the UK to Singapore, Rain Trees was incredibly welcoming, not only to Gus but also to me. We have made some good friends through Rain Trees which was a wonderful way to start our expat life in Singapore. Gus has loved his time at Rain Trees and he will miss it. But we know that we will keep in touch with the friends he has made there. Thank you”
