Best Inclusive Pre-Schools For Learning Difficulties And Special Needs In Singapore

Early Intervention & Supportive Education For Your Child

Best Preschools for Early Intervention in Singapore

If your child is on the autism spectrum, has been diagnosed with a learning, developmental, language, or other disorders, disability, or difficulty, early intervention, and daily inclusive education are the best things you can give them – and yourself.

The educational scene in Singapore is exceptionally advanced when it comes to inclusivity. Schools are opening spaces or even dedicating their expertise to the inclusion of children with special needs, learning differences, and disabilities into mainstream settings – or preparing them for it. This not only sets them on a path towards personal and academic growth, but also provides them, and you, with the much-needed, life-changing support and resources.

We bring you a list of schools that offer full-day early intervention programs, go beyond labels, demystify special needs education and collaborate with you, your kiddo, and dedicated specialists to rewire your child’s brain with quality, early, targeted intervention, and supportive education!
