Why Parents Love My First Skool In Singapore?

Quality & Holistic Curriculum

My First School is the preschool arm of NTUC First Campus Co-operative, and in the past 40 years, it has grown into one of Singapore’s most respected early childhood organizations.

NTUC First Campus’ My First Skool is dedicated to bringing parents and their children quality and holistic pre-school education within easy reach with 145 preschools across Singapore!

Here are the top 5 reasons why parents simply love NTUC First Campus’ My First Skool:

1. Accessibility

2. Quality & Holistic Curriculum

3. Award-Winning Preschool & Teachers

4. Conducive Learning Environments

5. Affordability


    Location is always key! Preschool locations always have been a critical consideration for many parents. A preschool within walking or travel distance is often an ideal choice as it is convenient and helps to save time on traveling, especially for parents who are always strapped for time!

    This is one of the many reasons why parents love My First Skool! With 145 centers island-wide, you can find one My First Skool in neighborhoods like Tampines in the East, Yishun in the North, Jurong in the West, and Telok Blangah in the South.


    My First Skool offers a Quality and Holistic Curriculum through a unique pedagogical approach called PETAL© – Playing, Exploring, Thinking, and Applying Learning.

    This approach provides facilitated play experiences that aid your child's learning and development holistically through 6 learning domains: Language & Literacy, Numeracy, Discovery of the World, Motor Skills Development, Aesthetics & Creative Expression and Social & Emotional Development.

    Though these are strikingly comprehensive on their own, My First Skool’s curriculum are far more enriching with special niches such as STEM, Arts, Bilingualism & Cultural Intelligence, Nature Learning to give preschoolers additional exposure in their areas of interest.


    My First Skool's teachers' love of teaching has earned them various awards that speak of their expertise and dedication across focus areas: SkillsFuture Fellowship, Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) Fellows, ECDA Award for Excellence in Early Childhood Development, MOE Awards such as Outstanding Pre-School Chinese Teacher Award (Outstanding Award) & Pre-school Chinese Language Storytelling Aids Competition!

    The list doesn't stop here! All eligible My First Skool centers are SPARK-certified (recognized as having strong teaching and learning practices which include a well-designed and integrated curriculum, and strong pedagogies to support children's holistic development in a conducive environment for learning).

    My First Skool also provide their students with a diverse range of balanced and nutritious meals (see menu here), 84% of their centers are accredited with the Healthy Meals in Pre-school Programme (HMPP) for providing healthier food options and promoting healthy eating habits.


    The learning environments of My First Skool gives you another reason to love them. All their preschool centers are purposefully designed to ensure a nurturing setting conducive to your child’s growth and well-being. Their learning environments are designed based on 8 principles, such as safety and health, comfort and softness, competence and autonomy, privacy, and social space, to name a few.

    With the prevailing COVID-19 situation, My First Skool has gone the extra mile to install commercial-grade UV sterilizers in all their centers. This ensures that all commonly used items such as toys, stationeries, and kitchen equipment are properly cleaned and sterilized to keep children safe and healthy so that you can have peace of mind.


    My First Skool's fees are capped at SG$720 and, after SG$300 working mothers’ subsidy, you only pay SG$420 (before GST) a month. Read more about the fees, infant care/childcare subsidy and admission requirements here.

    As part of their social mission, they established the Bright Horizons Fund (BHF) to ensure that every child has access to quality pre-school education and positive classroom experiences. During this challenging time, BHF seeks to support families who have had a reduction in household income or loss of job with 6 months of 100% fee offset the net fees payable.
