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


My boys love going to Rain Trees and are always excited to head off to “school” in the morning.

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 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.

Rain Trees is a very small, friendly, caring, local kindergarten. The children are engaged and stimulated and produce a lot of very creative things as our walls and shelves can attest to. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

“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.”

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.

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.

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!

In his own words, “My school is amazing”.

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.
