The Camberley Pre-school Environment at Balmoral Plaza
The centre is set up with the careful selection of colours and natural materials to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and conducive environment for learning, play and rest.
The learning environment is carefully designed and planned such that children have quality interactions with materials, be it individually or in groups. There is emphasis on physical activities in the Camberley programme, and children have meaningful and fun experiences with nature and natural materials.
At Camberley, we believe that having clean and aesthetically pleasing space is important for the children’s’ holistic learning. Routine cleaning is carried out several times daily to maintain a hygienic learning environment.
The 1900 square feet play area is well-suited for the children to play and enjoy. The centre has a custom built tree house play structure, blocks area, and space for ball games. The centre also has a custom built children kitchen studio for children to bake and cook in our Camberley Gourmet lessons.
Most importantly, the physical environment is reinforced by the pre-school’s low child to teacher ratio to ensure that each child is given the attention needed for holistic development. Camberley Pre-school Balmoral’s Small Teacher-Student Ratio is as shown in the Table below.

Healthy and Tasty Meals at Camberley Pre-School Balmoral
Healthy and tasty meals support healthy physical development in children. We do not cut cost with the meals we provide our students at Camberley. All meals are freshly prepared by our in-house cook.
Our preschool provides 3 quality healthy meals a day – breakfast, lunch and tea – depending on the type of programme your child is enrolled in. We have 4 menu sets that we rotate throughout a calendar month. Our meals are prepared in accordance to the dietary guidelines from Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and Health Promotion Board of Singapore.
We do not serve deep fried food like fries or hash browns. We do not serve processed meats like fish-ball, luncheon (preserved or cured) meat, hotdog sausages and Chinese preserved sausages (Lap Cheong). We believe processed meats are not beneficial to a child’s physical development. Therefore we only use real natural meats like fish fillets and chicken breast/thigh.
Our food menus are displayed at our centre’s notice board.
