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. ”
