Background

One World International School (OWIS) is one of Singapore's top international schools, catering to students between three and 18 years old on two high-quality campuses. Both the Suntec and Nanyang campuses are home to excellent Early Childhood sections for children from the ages of three to six.


What the school says

"At One World International School, we believe young learners benefit greatly from the play-based and inquiry-led learning approach. Based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) and underpinned by the English National Curriculum, our educational approach helps preschoolers to develop key communication, socio-emotional, motor and cognitive skills. The school day offers an interesting balance between English, Maths, Units of Inquiry, Mandarin, Art, Music and Physical Education to enthuse young children and keep them excited about learning.

"Our preschool classrooms at both of our campuses are bright and spacious, and there is plenty of room to integrate the different types of play that young children enjoy. We have dedicated child-safe zones for discovery and exploration, role play, physical activity, creativity, collaboration, sensory play, and outdoor learning. Our inviting Early Childhood environment has been designed to bring out the best in your child and to make coming to school the highlight of the day.

"Our passionate and caring IB-trained teachers treat every young learner as a unique individual. They help your child to develop confidence and independence from a young age. In small class sizes with a maximum of 18 students in Early Childhood, children get the special personalised attention and support they need to blossom and grow."

From the head of school

"We are committed to creating a student-focused and experiential learning community for your children. By nurturing the values of kindness and empathy, we ensure that our school community is a safe and positive environment where students will feel a sense of belonging. Children have a natural curiosity, and by leveraging this in our inquiry-led, play-based curriculum, we will help them to become lifelong learners who can reach their true potential."

– Mr Mark Renie, Head of School


What the parents say

“Our daughter is a vibrant, creative individual and finding a school to fit her enthusiastic personality was of utmost importance to us. What we like most about the teaching style at OWIS Suntec is that the school has a strong focus on learning through play and imagination, which is so key in helping my daughter enjoy her learning journey.  My daughter has a passionate, engaged teacher, who has helped her thrive as an individual. We also love OWIS’ ethos of kindness. This results in a school culture that is one of acceptance and positivity. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of school.”

– Yvonne de K, parent of Early Childhood student at OWIS Suntec
