Established in 1988 on Merino Crescent, Appleland Playhouse initially gained recognition through positive word-of-mouth from parents. In 1999, the school relocated to a more spacious facility on Depot Road, marking a significant expansion. This move allowed us to accommodate a growing number of students annually. In June 2019, we further extended our services by introducing Infant Care within the preschool.
With over three decades of experience and a current enrollment of over 100 students, Appleland Playhouse remains dedicated to providing high-quality preschool education for infants (2 to 18 months) and young children (18 months to 6 years old). Our committed team of educators focuses on nurturing and monitoring your child's cognitive, language, physical, social and emotional development. Additionally, we offer enrichment programs to create more avenues for your child to acquire new skills.
As an independent school, Appleland Playhouse received recognition in 2016 when it was honored with the Top 100 Elite & Trustworthy SMEs award by the Singapore Enterprise Medal of Honour.
Each child holds significant importance in our eyes. We perceive children as distinct individuals and active learners, honoring and celebrating their uniqueness by respecting the choices they make. We firmly believe that by allowing children the freedom of choice, they will develop into confident and responsible adults, embodying positive values and contributing meaningfully to the future world they will inherit.
At Appleland Playhouse, we strongly believe that parents play a crucial role as primary caregivers and supporters in their child's learning and growth journey. Our close partnership with parents recognises them as vital collaborators in the holistic development of their children.
As educators, we strive to set exemplary standards for parents and the community, continuously seeking professional growth opportunities. Within our school environment, we aspire to cultivate a relationship built on trust, care, and support among children, parents, teachers, and the community.
To develop a love of learning within each child
At Appleland Playhouse, our goal is to cultivate a nurturing and affectionate preschool environment. We work towards fostering a joyful and caring familial atmosphere while upholding our educational principles. We firmly believe that for children to derive pleasure from learning and develop a passion for lifelong learning, it is essential to establish a supportive learning environment that encourages exploration, discovery, and creativity.
Our mission is to facilitate the development of our students' Learning Skills, Numeracy Skills, Social Skills, Intellectual Skills, Aesthetic Awareness, Self-confidence, Independence, and Responsibility. We achieve this through a diverse array of age-appropriate materials and activities.
