Kindergarten

JNY Kindergarten comprises the Toddler, Nursery and Kindergarten (K1 and K2).

The Toddler programme is designed to promote life skills though both experiential learning and JNY-developed curricula, which takes a leaf from the best practices of East and West. It aims to provide a lot of opportunities for your child to mix and play with children of their own age.

With care and dedication, we strive to give your child the best educational foundation possible to prepare them for whatever is ahead.
