Brainy Child Montessori believes that children learn best in their early formative years. They are like a “sponge”, ever ready to receive inputs. The more inputs and exposure they get in different areas and subjects, the better equip they are to draw upon this knowledge to reach logical conclusions, be creative and expressive.
Brainy Child Montessori believes that children learn most effectively through hands-on experience and creative exploration. This will cultivate their love for learning, which in turn will help develop them into motivated self-learners.

“When my daughter first joined Brainy Child Montessori three years ago, she did not know any word of English. After three years, I was surprised at the improvement of her English. Other than English, she also learned math, science, arts, etc. and now she is ready to go to local primary school.” – MrShimagaki, Father of Emi (Class of 2018)
“My son enjoyed his experience so much while attending the school – he even asked to go to school during the weekends! From time to time, we would be surprised at new words he would use (e.g. The toy is now “stabilized”).” – Mrs Lau, Mother of Kenneth (visitor from New York)
