Building Strong Kids, Strong Families and Strong Communities
Founded by Metropolitan YMCA since 1980, MY World Preschool is committed to bringing quality infant and child care services to our communities, with an emphasis on character development and teaching of values. With a dedicated team of teachers, we hope to empower children through programmes that focus on learning through play, interaction, collaboration, as the use technology. In recognition of our commitment to provide quality and affordable infant and child care services, MY World Preschool was appointed an Anchor Operator (AOP) by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) in 2014. Our staff and teachers are passionate about teaching and dedicated to providing experiences that inspire your child’s love of learning!
We welcome you and your family to become a part of the MY World community where we truly value each individual child. We believe that effective partnership with you is key to a child’s early development. Together, we hope to engage young children in creative learning experiences that build character, strong values, self-confidence, and independence.

• Every child deserves a champion
OUR CORE VALUES
MY World Preschool puts values first as we are committed to developing each child holistically. We believe that a values-centred approach in preschool education can positively influence a child’s character development and social competency, which are factors vital in guiding him or her towards success, apart from academic achievements. Values are taught and reinforced every day in our programmes:
Apart from our core curriculum, learning experiences outside the classroom provide further opportunities for children to apply these important values in different environments. Here are some projects that families participate in:
- Volunteering Our Time
Our centres organise regular visits to senior activity centres and nursing homes. During these visits, our children interact with the seniors, learn about their lifestyles and entertain them with performances. Through such activities, we hope to inculcate the values of respect and care for others. These opportunities also encourage intergenerational bonding between children and seniors in our neighbourhoods.
- Donating Our Resources
Once a year, our centres invite parents and children to participate in M.Y Manna programme where you donate essential provisions (food and toiletries) to underprivileged families and individuals in our community. This programme helps families who struggle with severe health issues, unemployment, retrenchment or incarceration. Do consider participating in this meaningful programme.
- Flag Day
Children and families may participate in Metropolitan YMCA’s annual flag day to help raise funds for communities in need. Pledge cards are distributed to all centres and each child will get a card to collect funds.
