Our Story – Camberley Pre-school
Camberley Pre-school was established in 2011, and is the dream project of May May and George. May May and George (husband and wife) are both church children ministry workers and volunteers for many years. They are both children advocates and believe children are to be loved, cherished, nutured and most importantly a gift from God.
George had the opportunity to experience and enjoy education both in Singapore and the United Kingdom. He believes that education should be holistic and fun and rote learning should be avoided when possible. And most importantly learning should be authentic and experiential even at the early years.
May May and George set up Camberley Pre-school from the heart and continues to strive to create a pre-school where children are loved, nutured and enjoy learning. The couple have placed great emphasis on providing wonderful physical environment & aesthetics, healthy meals, fun filled play areas, and a rich programme delivered by passionate and happy teachers.
Camberley Pre-School is committed to provide children with the best pre-school experience and education.
Camberley will meet its Vision by:
- Providing A Safe, Healthy, Child-centred and Positive Environment of Learning
- Providing A Holistic Programme based on research-based best practices
- Providing authentic Home-School Partnership
- Carry out On-going Evaluation and Assessment on our programme and organisation as a whole

Camberley’s Philosophy of Care
A Safe, Healthy, Child-centred and Positive Environment of Learning
We believe that every child is entitled to grow and learn in a safe and secure environment. We also strive to give our children and their families a school where they feel they belong; where rich learning takes place. We believe in giving everyone in the Camberley family happy and memorable years with us. We therefore aim to provide a caring and positive environment of learning for children, their families as well as our team of staff.
A Holistic Programme
We believe in providing authentic and meaningful learning experiences to promote holistic development of our children – physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. We aim to instill in our children a paradigm of inquiry and a love for learning. We believe that children need to be given opportunities to grow, to explore, to discover and to experience successes. We seek to nurture the champion in every child.
We believe that families bring with them rich knowledge about their children and an active partnership between school and the home can only benefit the child. We aim to foster strong home-school partnerships and we are pro-active in responding to the needs of children and their families.
On-going Evaluation and Assessment
We value feedback and understand the need for on-going evaluation and assessment to monitor our progress. We use documentation as a tool of assessment for children and as an ongoing evaluation of our programme. We also encourage and support reflective practice in our team of staff, to enhance our pedagogy and as a platform for professional development.
Respect for Every Child
Above all, we value and respect children for their individuality and uniqueness. Our programme embraces children’s varied learning styles and gifts.
