Parent and Toddler Group

The Toddler Group is currently suspended and underg0ing a few changes.
We hope to be back in February to run in the afternoons.
Please register your interest so we can keep you informed of the changes.

Rain Trees offers an informal parent and toddler group on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 9.30-11.30am. Our parent and toddler group is where parents and toddlers meet to socialise and play in a relaxed, friendly environment.

The group is for children between the ages of 8 months and 2 years old.  Each session, which is run by our parent and toddler facilitator, lasts approximately 2 hours and includes a programme of activities such as music, art and play and also includes a small session of singing in Mandarin.

Helper and Toddler Group

We also run a Helper & Toddler group on Monday and Thursday mornings from 9.30-11.30am. This session follows the same format as the Parent & Toddler sessions but will be an opportunity for children to come with their helpers where parents are working or unable to come.

An Example of a session at our Parent/Helper and Toddler group would be:

9.30 – 9.45amWelcome and Free Play
9.45 – 10.30amArt Activity and/or Free Play
10.30 – 10.45amTidy Up Time and Snack
10.45 – 11.00amStory, Singing and Music
11.00 – 11.15amMandarin Time
11.15 – 11.30amOutdoor Play and Goodbye

For parents it provides an opportunity to:

Play with children and nurture a love of learning in a group
Share experiences and ideas
Relax and talk in a friendly environment
Prepare your toddler for pre-school
Meet other families living in Singapore and develop new friendships

For children, it provides a chance for them to:

Develop social skills including sharing and cooperation
Participate in new experiences
Learn more about the world

Most importantly it allows children to get used to our pre-school so when they start school they already know the environment, people and have made friends – we have found that this makes for a much easier transition not only for the child but for Mum and Dad too!!!


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 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.

Vivienne enjoyed her time at Rain Trees very much and the nurturing environment was perfect for her. We were all sad to leave the school and despite her young age, Vivienne will remember Rain Trees fondly and of course all of the friends she made.

I would definitely recommend you (and do) as I think you create a very nurturing environment for children to flourish.

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!

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 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!

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.

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

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.
