Programmes for children aged 18 months to 6 years old.

Founded in 2002, Rainbow Cove is a Montessori pre-school registered with the Singapore Ministry of Education offering programmes for children aged 18 months to 6 years. Our teachers and curriculum cater to the individual needs of children, gently encouraging the child to learn at his or her own pace while developing world knowledge and life skill.


We also focus very much on developing the child’s interest in other areas of life besides the academic. Our bilingual programme is anchored by native Chinese teachers who not only teach, but also converse with the children in Mandarin in an informal setting every day, ensuring maximum exposure to the language.


Montessori education is a globally-acknowledged educational approach which emphasizes independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child’s natural cognitive, physical and social development.


As part of our curriculum we have integrated the Reggio Emilia approach,  an educational philosophy developed in Italy which dovetails with Montessori education. This approach essentially allows the child to direct his or her own learning. Teaching in our school is thus tailored to match the interests, needs and learning pace of each child.


First and foremost, our teachers love and care for the children. This is why the children of Rainbow Cove are happy to come to school and engage in learning.

Armed with the relevant diplomas in Early Childhood Care and Education, our teachers, comprising a diverse mix of local and foreign teachers, are also Montessori-trained.

The team is helmed by a core group of veteran educators who have taught in Rainbow Cove for over 10 years.

Together, our close-knit team work together to bring out the best in your child. 


  • “  My elder son, now aged 12, went to Rainbow Cove before the stated primary school, so it was an obvious choice to send my younger son too, and he has love his time there. the principal is an extraordinary teacher who takes a personal interest in each of the children, and she has created a stimulating and loving environment that nurtures each child to the best of their ability. My son has so much fun there every day and has a wonderful relationship with his teachers and the other children. Academically the school gives a strong foundation ready for entering Primary School. ”

  • "  Rainbow Cove is so many things to my two children, Riley and Reece. Switching to Rainbow Cove only in the middle of K1. Riley, who is now 8, went from not being able to read at all to being able to take on simple reading confidently in just half a year. The foundation he got in Mathematics proved useful even in Primary School as the techniques he learn in addition and subtraction allowed him to take on Pri 1 Math with no difficulty at all. Beyond the academic, Riley also enjoyed himself tremendously during his time at Rainbow Cove. For my younger son, Reece, Rainbow Cove is almost like a second home. Having been part of the Rainbow Cove family since PG, Reece, who is now in K1, is growing up beautifully the Rainbow Cove way. Linguistically, he has a strong foundation, the emphasis on phonics during English Lessons means Reece pays special attention to his pronunciation and enjoys blending new words he sees. Besides the academic, Rainbow Cove has also exposed him to a world filled with the arts and nature. Rainbow cove is more than just a place of learning for my children. it is also were the go to play, to explore, to hang out with their friends, and a place where they feel safe and happy.  "

  • "  Iva, our older one, started in pre nursery and now as a second grader in a different school, always fondly remembers her 'first' school. Prisha, our younger one currently in N1, enjoys every minutes of her school time and is distressed if she has to miss school for any reason! She lovers 'bossing around' in the class and bantering with Teacher Natalie and the lao shis. She's clearly having the time of her life! We are delighted to have chosen Rainbow Cove as our daughters' preschool. We wish the school continued success and feel confident that it will bring happiness and joy to many more toddlers and children!  "
