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

Liam has really settled in well to Rain Trees. Has not asked to go back to his old school. I was quite anxious about this transition as he has so many friends at his former school. We are continuing to see his friends regularly during the week and weekends. I have not seen Liam come out of his school at pickup with a smile beaming so brightly as I did last Thursday and Friday. I wish to extend a thank you to Rain Trees staff for making Liam’s introduction such a welcoming and positive one.

Liam cried yesterday morning because he wasn’t going to school. This hasn’t happened before!
Thank you ever so much!

The communications and administration from Rain Trees has been flawless. This is so refreshing for me.

Rain Trees is a very happy kindergarten. My son very much enjoys coming to school. The teachers and teaching assistants are lovely and warm, but also very professional. Rain Trees isn’t a day care provider … it is a provider of pre-school education.

The perfect soft entry for toddlers into a drop-off learning environment as you can rest assured the Rain Trees team will do everything to make your child feel safe, loved and both mentally + emotionally understood.

Isabella has had a blast and I’m so glad she I had found this hidden gem just down the road from us.

Parent involvement is so welcome and the smiles and chatters during pick-ups and drop-offs is truly because Rain Trees has managed to build a strong community within the school with things like bake sales, fundraisers, parent volunteers etc who really do give great helping hands to the children.

Rain Trees has struck the perfect balance between fun and learning, exploring and boundaries. Its ‘family’ feel makes it a happy and welcoming place to be.

Rain Trees is a home away from home. It has a real sense of family. The children seem to be happy and settle in quickly. There seems to be the right balance between playing and discipline.

We would happily recommend Rain Trees to anyone looking for a happy, caring and professionally run kindergarten.

My three year old son Samuel attends Rain Trees Kindergarten and absolutely loves it! 

Recently while on school holidays we were dropping his Dad off to work and he said, ‘Mum, where’s my school bag?’ When I told him it was the holidays he was a little upset!

We were very lucky as we were recommended Rain Trees by a friend and decided on the first visit that it would be a great place for Samuel. We met with Katie Terry and she showed us around Rain Trees. Samuel didn’t make it past the outdoor play area he loved it so much! We visited the classrooms and Katie answered all the questions I had.

Rain Trees is spacious and inviting and It really had a great feel about it. It wasn’t a hard decision to make as Samuel wanted to stay on our first visit.

I started Samuel in the Caterpillars class last October. Samuel initially started 2 mornings per week. I was planning to wait until Samuel was three before I extended this to 5 mornings per week but he was enjoying it so much I extended it to 3 then 5 mornings just before Christmas. 

Like any Mum I expected there to be tears on his first day, but there were so many things in the room, that he just wanted to start exploring, it was just a matter of a kiss and a cuddle and bye Mummy and he was off.

It really helped that his teacher Karen was so engaging with him from the word go. Karen really gets down on to the kids level and teaches them in a way that is fun and stimulating for them. 

The whole team at Rain Trees are really lovely. I feel what Samuel does there is just such a great extension to what we do at home and could not recommend them enough.

Rain Trees is a great school for those looking for a familiar place where the kids get treated in a very unique way, with a lot of attention and kindness. They make the whole school experience so much fun!
The school facilities are great, kids get to play a lot outdoors and develop their curiosity by many things outside the classroom, like plants, animals and playing freely.
Splash time on Fridays is a big hit, children actually look forward to those moments of amusement.
The whole team is very special!

We are extremely happy with Raintrees and our son loves it. We feel lucky that we have been able to find a place that nurtures each child as an individual and helps our son to thrive.

RainTrees has provided a wonderfully happy and nurturing environment for our child and I would recommend it unequivocally to any parents seeking a fun-filled educational start in life.
