Bilingual Project Learning in a Singapore Preschool: A Guide for Parents & Educators


By sharing their story about how a small preschool grew, Charmaine Teo and Koh Hui Hua of Between Two Trees Preschool reflect upon their journey and share their ideas for experiential learning in a bilingual and multicultural environment.

From thinking about what you want for your child’s education to carrying out actual project learning in your space, this book gives you all the information you need to begin, as well as nine big project ideas for ages one to six.

Between Two Trees is one of the truly original Singapore brands that I respect very much. I find that the values-driven school that these 2 wonderful women have created is visionary and relevant. Their spaces ground the children in nostalgia and a love for our community. I have found myself feeling excited by my own child’s growing curiosity, and touched by how much the teaching team honours each piece of work the children create. Few schools balance an emphasis on roots and yet develop a preparation for the future as well as this school does. Such an integrity and love for their work. Read this from cover to cover; it will encourage you greatly.” — An endorsement by Mr. Tong Yee, Former parent at B2T and Co-Founder of The Thought Collective
