There are many things to consider for parents who are finding the right preschool for their little ones. Preschool offers early childhood education before they begin primary school, with programs that provide care and development in a range of preparation skills.
Of the best education systems in the world, Singapore consistently ranks in the top ten lists, and scores incredibly high in the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) tests, which aim to measure and compare the performance of students across different countries. Singapore also does well in exams of younger children, and graduates can be found around the world’s finest universities. It’s no wonder that they have many established preschool and nursery institutions all over the country.
Ranked as one of the best and most popular, Mindchamps is an award winning premium early childhood education provider for children aged 18 months to 7 years old in the playgroup, nursery and kindergarten levels. With more than 40 locations in Singapore, it expanded to more than 70 enrichment centers and preschools across Australia, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, China and Malaysia.
With a teacher to student ratio of 1 to 6 for playgroup, and 1 to 8 for nursery 1, MindChamps has a unique curriculum of activities specifically designed to prepare children for the change in teaching styles, social skills, environment and routine when they enter primary school. Qualified teachers undergo around 200 hours of compulsory training and accreditation, ensuring that a child’s mind is nurtured by highly qualified and dedicated mentors.

In the Philippines, six (6) centers are located in Manila Bay Campus, Fort Flagship Campus, Ortigas Campus, Greenhills Campus, Nuvali and Alabang.
Venturing in Mindanao, Milo Fadrilan (Marketing Director, Mindchamps International Preschool, BGC The Fort Inc.) explained how fate has led him to interested investors and partners who wanted the same quality education for their kids, and wanted to bring this system to Davao. It so happens that his roots were also from Davao and had his childhood here.
Last February 14-16, 2019, MindChamps launched two and a half days of free trial sessions at the second floor of Blooming Days Café where parents brought their toddlers to experience the holistic approach and crafted play taught by Singapore-trained teachers, followed by a written evaluation to assess the level each is qualified to enroll in.
