Nurseries and Kindergartens in Singapore

Expat parents with children too young to start primary school will find plenty of options for nursery schools in Singapore, including Montessori pre-schools. Some popular nurseries cost almost as much as regular school and can have long waiting lists, so be sure to enquire early.

Most schools allow parents to choose how many days of the week their child will attend school, allow early drop-offs, provide lunches, or have optional afternoon programmes for working parents. Always check these specifics with individual schools.

Here are some recommended nursery schools in Singapore.
